Lyrics of I Can't Win

 That was you up on the mountain

All alone and all surrounded
Walking on the ground you're breaking
Laughing at the life you're wasting
1 - 2 tries won't do it
You do it all your life and you never get through it
Everything they had to say
Had been erased in just one day
"Good try
We don't like it"
"Good try
We won't take that shit."
I can't win.
Things in bars that people do
When no one wants to talk to you
Failing can be quite a breeze, he
Told me that these girls were easy
Happy that you said you'd mount me
Felt unlucky when you found me
Some nights come up empty handed
Yes, I'll take it
Wait now
By the sidewalk
Hold on
Yes, I'll be right back.
I can't win.
Yeah, I
Wait for something
"Cool it
We won't take that shit"
"Good try
We don't like it"
-Hold on,
Yes, I'll be right back.

The opening chord to this song always hits me so hard. It gives me this sinking feeling of like "Oh shit, I'm late!" or "I just realized I'm in huge trouble!" Julian, you're a musical genius!

@keith138punk maybe should you not isolate yourself to Is this it, you'll find out what I mean? I used to think Is this it was their best album, but since have thought differently. It's ONLY their best commercially, and that means radio and media friendly songs, not BEST songs. You're getting confused.

Actually I meant the quality of the video not the song, & the strokes were praised because they were so comercial, This is a very catchy song that could be used in a comercial, Their music didnt really cause ppl to think to much, Julian said it himself, he makes music that fits in a moment of your life... well something liike that I think. I might not have got it word 4 word.It might not even be what he said. but you can search it up if you want.
