"Nobody Really Cares If You Don't Go to the Party" as written by and Courtney Barnett....
You always get what you want
And you don't even try
Your friends hate it when its always going your way
But I'm glad that you've got luck on your side
You're saying definitely maybe
I'm saying probably no
You say You sleep when you're dead, I'm scared I'll die in my sleep
I guess that's not a bad way to go

I wanna go out but I wanna stay home
I wanna go out but I wanna stay home

Why are you so eager to please?
I wear my heart on my sleeve
Gets harder in the winter, gotta be a fake or shiver
It takes a great deal out of me
Yes I like hearing your stories
But I've heard them all before
I'd rather stay in bed with the rain over my head
Than have to pick my brain up off of the floor

I wanna go out but I wanna stay home
I wanna go out but I wanna stay home

I wanna go out but I wanna stay home
I wanna go out but I wanna stay home

I wanna go out but I wanna stay home
I wanna go out but I wanna stay home

    My OpinionWho hasn't experienced the feeling described in the chorus of this amazing song...
    First time I heard it, last year @Glastonbury, I was just enthralled by its sheer energy. Then I read the lyrics and couldn't help but smile with the Oasis wink ("definitely maybe")

    It's a debate between two people (it can absolutely be an inside-of-your-mind discussion), one of whom wants to go out a lot, and the other one who just want to stay home. The tongue-in-cheek humor CB has always demonstrated is here at its best with lines like "You say You sleep when you're dead, I'm scared I'll die in my sleep"

    Love it
