Gareth Inkster isn’t lucky in love – we don’t know if he’s lucky at cards, but there’s a suggestion from ‘Used to it‘ that he’s lucky at pulling a song out of an emotionally bad situation.
As he explains ‘Used to it ‘ was “written in the immediate aftermath of a breakup. I got home, and could feel myself anticipating the inevitable fallout – the weight of realization hadn’t settled yet. The image came to mind of an unfortunate soul who had been tied to the tracks while a train was approaching, like in those old westerns; safe for now, but ultimately screwed.”
