Alvvays - Atop A Cake Lyrics




I lie on a sofa awake
It's what you said last night
You'd like us on top of a cake
But you won't let me take a bite

Flowers arriving in fleets
Can't we talk about this?
Why let the State in our sheets?
Can't we do without it?

Well I don't mean to wind you up
But I'd like to slow it down
How do I remain a pup?
If you put me in a gown?

What's it gotta do with you?
What's it gotta do with me?
How could I lose control when you're driving from the backseat?
What's it gotta do with you?
What's it gotta do with me?
How could I lose control when you're driving from the backseat?

Corners begin to repeat
I think we're getting lost
We walked to the end of the street
But we were bitten by the frost

So if you have to thaw me out
You can put me in a pail
Can we take another route?
I don't want to wear a vail

What's it gotta do with you?
What's it gotta do with me?
How could I lose control when you're driving from the backseat?
What's it gotta do with you?
What's it gotta do with me?
How could I lose control when you're driving from the backseat?

I'll wait in the lobby for someone to show
And if they don't come I will know where to go
The bodies are lined up outside in the hall
I don't want to decay in a mall

If everything you say is true
Then why would I disagree?
How can I lose control...?

What's it gotta do with you?
What's it gotta do with me?
How could I lose control when you're driving from the backseat?

When you're driving from the backseat

Alvvays Atop A Cake Comments
  1. The Baby

    I love alvvays so muchhh 😭💙💜

  2. Dave

    I bought some cake mix because I wanted to bake a cake. I like chocolate so bought the box mix, some eggs etc. I got chocolate pudding mix because I was told I could mix it in with the batter to make the cake moist. I told the girl at checkout what I was up to and she said, "you can't do that I've never heard of that".

  3. splank

    incoming...

  4. i'm not cyborg

    12aw-125ak

  12. Nick

    Stop trying to think of something witty to say and just listen

  13. Michael Raum

    I wish I could like this twice.

  14. Ham

    the cake is just a metaphor for my ass

  15. Justin

    Is this playing a bit fast? The pitch sounds slightly higher than the CD version.

  16. ศุภกร 977

    โครตดีเลยอะ

  17. Jxrdan

    Such a Beautiful song ❤

  18. Spence Skylar

    those 47 dislikes are the party police

  19. Arin Lee

    My favorite track from the album

  20. Olak the Destroyer

    Yet she wants to force Archie into marriage? Tsk tsk.

  21. rahuljoban

    I love the sound of her very canadian accent when she says "I lie on a sofa"

  22. Rory Stockley

    Whatever that chord change is from 'how can I lose control' to the final word of 'when you're driving from the back seat' is shameless, undiluted genius.

  23. Adriano B. Oliveira

    Well someone could help me. After I heard this song I just know "What you gonna do with you?
    What are you gonna do with me? ".....

  24. Prince Mononoke

    Jeezus! Does this band have a single bad song?

  25. ĒVÃŃ .MP3

    Qui est la grace au roi fromage ?

  26. Teri Dactyl

    This is incredibly underrated!!!

  33. Don Vito

    Why this sing not on Spotify anymore? 😢

  34. Luis Motta

    This song is perfect for the ending of a TV teenage drama series I may write one day.

    GITH

  35. Purple Drapes

    One of the best songs of our era

  36. Dan

    Dave not Doug She's not in it

  39. Zenyou's Apprentice

    Still their best song.

  40. mrmashedpotato

    Love is hard. Intimacy isn't all puppies and rainbows. Alvvays isn't the first to write songs about this subject, but it's appeal is pretty much timeless and not constrained by cultural boundaries.

  41. Owen

    this song puts me in peace.

  42. Ezekiel J. Proctor

    Alvvays Never Fails Making Me Happy With All Their Songs

  43. Alex Effy

    "Atop a cake" The best of Alvvays.

    Great indeed and this is a fantastic cut
    Gets better the more you listen and Molly's voice a marvel

    Sediment fds

    Poppy

    +Sediment how can cod ruin music you fucking moron

    Sediment fds

    swag city snipers don't talk to me moron

  65. Nicolás Israel

    It's not the technical sound that Alvvays deserves. On the other hand, the song it's so good and it's so well played that it doesn't matter at all.

  66. ComputerMagic

    "How could I lose control,
    When you´re driving from the back seat?" <3

    Ben Donnelly

    No, It's supposed to be sweet.

    ComputerMagic

    Lmao ok my bad :(

  67. Squilliam Fancyson

    Should have been a single instead of Party Police

    Squilliam Fancyson

    I don't know... I mean I get how it sounds like white noise compared to something like Next of Kin... but by that logic they should have scrapped Party Police for sounding too much like Archie Marry Me... If it wasn't Atop a Cake I think either Ones Who Love You or Dives would have been the better fit.

    adrct

    D'accord!

    mkjh

    kept it for the fans

    mkjh

    prob could have banked more as a single than the party patrol

    Tolga Han Kaya

    nope party police is amazing

  68. PlanetNamedDesire

    amazing band

  69. michael c

    One of the most underrated songs on the album.

    Gerardo Aguilar

    I think I remember Molly saying this was her favorite song out of both albums. Definitely in my top 3.

    nasser yousif

    @Gerardo Aguilar any idea why she stopped doing music ???????????

    zapple sn

    Party Police : Hold my beer

    J D S

    nasser yousif they didn’t I don’t think.

  70. Fall Dog

    I think this song should be called "El Dorado," because it seems like that's the central metaphor. And because I'm a bit racist and associate it with Mexican food.

  71. Hold On, Caulfield

    Heard this for the first time while driving with my 3 close friends on a highway in my pickup. It was a nice experience.

  72. RodCornholio

    Clever writing and performance.

  73. Md Sahlan

    just found this song in topmen butique

  74. Bruno Marvila

    Essa música é muito boa

  75. H1PrstX

    good intro

  76. Serj

    GITH

    You fuck with this shit AND you fuck with Earl? You got good taste.
