A happy-go-lucky break up anthem that puts a joyous spin on the end of a relationship. A bubbling indie pop floorfiller that brings to mind Orange Juice, Dexys Midnight Runners and Bananarama, with whistles and banjos and shoo-be-doo backing vocals bouncing away (courtesy of Sophie and Iris from Girl Ray and Pete's daughter Martha). Brimming with summery joy and excitement, at the same time as being undercut with a melancholy and a feeling of sadness.


I feel like starting over
it’s time that I moved on
it’s gone on long enough now
my heart has been broken worse than this before
I’m sure I’ll bounce back somehow

one step at a time
I’m turning my life around

things are looking up
I’m just so happy to be happy again
I‘m going out and getting drunk with my friends
piña coladas
things are looking up
I know I should be feeling sad but I’m not
I’m having so much fun I almost forgot
Take That and Party

things are looking like a Sunday morning and all I want to be is me
I feel like dancing to a song I don’t know and laughing with my friends again
just like I used to

one step at a time I feel like myself again

things are looking up
I feel like I’ve been missing out on so much
moping about in my pyjamas for months
I wasn’t happy
but things are looking up
I’ve bought new underwear and cut my hair short
and I’ve updated all my Pinterest boards
life is for living
things are looking up

things are looking up
I hit the bottom but I’m bouncing back up
along the way I’ve hit a couple of bumps
but I kept going
and things are looking up
I’m on the bus home on a Saturday night
listening to all those songs that you never liked
from where I’m sitting
things are looking up
and maybe I’ll have my heart broken again
but it’s all Barry Manilow until then
things are looking up
