Alvvays - Adult Diversion Lyrics

How do I get close to you?
Even if you don't notice as I admire you on the subway
When it's dark outside your house
You won't let anybody out
And keep a padlock on the door, well

One more cocktail
And I'm on your trail

If I should fall
Act as though it never happened
I will retreat
And sit inside so very quietly

How do I grow old with you?
Even if you don't notice as I pass by you on the sidewalk
When it's dark outside your house
You won't let anybody out
You're keeping a dead girl in the closet

One more cocktail
Is it a good time?
Or is it highly inappropriate?

If I should fall
Act as though it never happened
I will retreat
And then go back to university
If I should fall
Act as though it never happened
I will retreat
And sit inside so very quietly

Why won't we stop?
Why won't we stop?
Why won't we stop?

If I should fall
Act as though it never happened
I will retreat
And sit inside so very quietly
If I should fall
Act as though it never happened
I will retreat
And then go back to university

  1. DiscoDashco

    Either Princess Chelsea or Stereolab brought me here - one of the two because I was listening to a lot of them lately. But I couldn’t be more glad to be here. What a great song!

  2. Lu Cattsur

    Below the line Dream pop bed rock indie post punk bands like this. Surf rock is dead. Craft spells, and lots more really SAVED this postmodernist music era.
