"Better Luck" as written by and Jason Sellards Derek Gruen....
I know I'm into you
I don't know what to do
When we talk I feel like I've died twice
Boxers use it's fists
Hockey players break their wrist
You break my heart when you try to play nice

Like a detective without a case
I'll magnify what you say and
Test the implications
It could be you or it could be through
Before it even begins
I'm a fish swimming without fins

Better luck next time
Maybe we could have a go
With another kind of love
One that carries on
Better luck next time
Guess I've only one regret
That I didn't get to know you better than I did

You tell me that you're mine
Are you just being kind?
Let's not stretch our imagination
When you look into my eyes
Always get them butterflies
My knees get weak with anticipation

And if I might have a slip of the tongue
Will the fun disappear?
Is the binding coming undone?
You keep me waiting within your grasp
But I can't tell what you feel
And I'm too afraid to ask you

Better luck next time
Maybe we could have a go
With another kind of love
One that carries on
Better luck next time
Guess I've only one regret
That I didn't get to know you bet

    General CommentTo me this song sounds like a one-night or short period relationship, what ppl mostly do to delight theit sexual needs. In these relationships someone might want more then the other:

    "Guess I've only one regret
    That i didn't get to know you better than i did"

    And for me this line shows the difference between making love, and being in love:

    "Maybe we could have a go
    With another kind of love
    One that carries on"

    General CommentI really really love this song! I love the beat and the lyrics, its soo cool! lol Yes I think its meaning is that there is a guy or a girl and they didnt get to know one another well enough and now they have lost their chance to do so. "Before it even begins, Im a fish swimming without fins" backs up my point of a short term relationship that could have gone better and now he regrets not trying harder. great song, I like this one and I dont feel liek dancing the most. luv melissa xxxxxxxx

    General Commentthank god that you can't get anything gay out of the lyrics, but knowing that half the band is gay creeps me out when I hear their music. I can only take lesbian music, like melissa etheridge, but not the village people or the scissor sisters.
