The Sharehouse Song

Written By: Alicia Egan

The Sharehouse Song.

I have never met a boy as weird as you
I know it might sound like an insult
But that’s not what I’m trying to do.
And it’s rented houses and no backyards
And half arsed jobs after we’d studied so hard
And I’m working late, spend my life on the train
Looks like I’m eating dinner from a can again.
Did you know our conversation was the best part of my day
You put your comic spin on my bleak situation
Make me feel like I’m in some play.

We’re getting too old for this sharehouse circuit
Sleeping alone in our double beds
The sink is crowded, the fridge is bare
The potplant should never have been left in my care.
And I have never met a boy quite so weird as you
I know, I know it might sound like an insult
But that’s not what I was trying to do.
We’re irrationally jealous of our parents’ generation
with their retirement funds and their free education
but our knees are buckling, we’re craning our necks
to see a life beyond the crippling weight of our HEX.
I’m so glad you could make it
Hey I’m so glad you could come rescue me

I’m surrounded by all these smug couples
They’re whinging about the rising price of houses.
Days are gone when they’re alone like me
Who would stay up drinking and talk about love for hours.
Yeah they’re telling me it’s high time that I did something with my life
To stop procrastinating.
They’re talking about my life like it’s this rundown house
In serious need of redecorating.
So it’s not surprising our conversation was the best part of my day.
