The lyrics go:
When it hasn’t been your day, your week, your month
Or even your year
I argued that the word even makes the lyric nonsensical. It should’ve been the other way round. Its vanishingly unlikely that it could have been your year if within that year it wasn’t at least once your day, your week or your month.
She argued that I’ve read into it far too much and to please please shut up about it.
And so it must be settled:
- You’re completely right: the rembrants and by extension the friends have really fucked it with this one
- She’s right, the lyric could relate to a series of non temporally-specific positive events that when considered as a whole could be described as ‘your year’
- You’re both wankers
When it hasn’t been your year, your month, your week
Or even your day
