“Push My Luck” by The Chainsmokers
The Chainsmokers’ “Push My Luck” is a song about a budding relationship. The singer and the addressee, his romantic interest, have apparently already slept together. But the implication is that they have not made any type of formal, long-term commitment.
Indeed what they are going through is more or less a fling, where sometimes she (the addressee) may call him and other times not. But he is definitely interested in taking things to the next level despite the implied risk factor involved. Indeed the term “push my luck” alludes to the idea of someone making an attempt to accomplish a specific goal regardless of the palpable possibility of failure. And in this particular case, the scenario reads like the singer’s lover may be so caught up in other responsibilities that the idea of getting into a deep romance is not at the forefront of her mind. Moreover their first date did not end ideally. However there is definitely a mutual interest.
And regardless of what her apprehensions may be against getting seriously committed to him, obviously the singer is smitten and has decided to continue to push up either way.
