The Less I Know the Better
Tame Impala Lyrics


Someone said they left together
I ran out the door to get her
She was holding hands with Trevor
Not the greatest feeling ever
Said, "Pull yourself together
You should try your luck with Heather"
Then I heard they slept together
Oh, the less I know the better
The less I know the better
Oh, my love, can't you see yourself by my side?
No surprise when you're on his shoulder like every night
Oh, my love, can't you see that you're on my mind?
Don't suppose you could convince your lover to change his mind?
So goodbye

She said, "It's not now or never
Wait ten years, we'll be together"
I said, "Better late than never
Just don't make me wait forever"
Don't make me wait forever
Don't make me wait forever

Oh, my love, can't you see yourself by my side?
I don't suppose you could convince your lover to change his mind?

I was doin' fine without you
'Til I saw your face, now I can't erase
Givin' in to all his bullshit
Is this what you want? is this who you are?
I was doin' fine without you
'Til I saw your eyes turn away from mine
Oh, sweet darling, where he wants you
Said, "Come on Superman, say your stupid line"
Said, "Come on Superman, say your stupid line"
Said, "Come on Superman, say your stupid line"

Man, this song really resonates with me. I used to have a great teacher for 7 years (knew him for 10 years) and in person he's a really sociable guy people really want to be around, he never demanded respect or anything at all, people respected him because he knew what was right and wrong. He lived simply and enjoyed life to the fullest and always so positive about everything... He always stuck his way of teaching, instead of forcing information in your head he would just present the teachings to you and you would be the one responsible for taking it in. One time in his class I opened a playlist of songs I listen to (since he was super laid back and enjoyed the student's freedom), and this song happened to play. I was enjoying this song since it was the second or third time I was listening to it and bopping my head to it, out of nowhere when the chorus hit I will never forget the time he sang along since he wasn't really a music guy. I had the biggest smile anyone could ever imagine, a teacher relating to a student through music. It really hit... He sadly passed away last year in 23 September, 2020 from Diabetes. May your soul rest in peace you wonderful person...

Edit: Everyone replying is so wonderful! I hope for anyone who is going through a bad time can get through it, it's only a matter of time until good times will come. :)

@Matthew Promthai Thanks

I went to school with the author of the comment. The teacher he was referring to was truly an incredible person. He was more of a companion than a teacher. He would always listen to your problems and empathize with you. He had an amazing soul and was such a creative guy who always put his students first. I really miss him, we all do.

@Joanna Ferris Thanks a lot! To you as well!

I haven’t heard this song in almost a year maybe, I really miss it. It reminds me of the summer and sneaking out with my friends, watching the stars from the playground while shivering bc we didn’t plan the night out, walking around and having peace amongst each other with the empty streets. I really can’t get enough of it. This song makes me want to live again.
