Alvvays - Forget About Life Lyrics




I thought of going in the lake and swallowing
Thought that I had unplugged the phone until it rang
When the phases of the moon they don’t apply
When accomplishing a simple task takes several tries

Did you want to forget about life?
Did you want to forget about life with me tonight?
Underneath this flickering light
Did you want to forget about life with me tonight?

Left the apartment in a state of disarray
Tried out the synthesizer you bought yesterday
When the failures of the past they multiply
And you trivialize the things that keep your hand from mine

Did you want to forget life?
Did you want to forget about life with me tonight?
Under condominium signs
Did you want to forget about life with me tonight?

Woo!

Do you want to forget life?
Do you want to forget about life with me tonight?
Underneath this flickering light
Do you want to forget about life with me tonight?
Inhaling this undrinkable wine
(Forget everything tonight)
Forget about life with me tonite?
(Forget everything tonight)
Under the condominium signs
Did you want to-Whoa-oh-oh
(Forget everything tonite)

Alvvays Forget About Life Comments
  1. Elie Waitzer

    this is such a Toronto anthem for me

  2. Melvins82

    The twist on 1:26 is surreal, not expected at all. The first thing that comes to mind is Oblivion, video games, and dead pop stars.

  3. Morgan Burton

    I swear this song evokes the HHGTTG theme

  4. Scrub

    What life?

  5. Mike Vires

    Cant help but feel the mastering is overly muddy... right when the singing stops and the instrumental kind of comes in full swing around 1:30.. it comes off anticlimactic because it doesnt ring out clearly. Which is a shame because the melodies, the instruments/synths themselves, and the arrangement are quite lovely

    Melvins82

    @Mike Vires Hi Mike, I understand where you coming from, but I believe the low fi sound was on purpose to build up the ghostly vibe.

  6. mansi tendulkar

    This song is so pure.

  7. binkari

    perfect lyrics. im in awe

  8. Divya Tekwani

    So pure

  9. Sergej Lovrekovic

    Matej Ilakovac

    Sergej Lovrekovic ej koje bendove još slušaš nikad nisam vidio nekog s ovih prostora da sluša alvvays

    When the song gets to 1:25 it gets to me everytime. It's different from what they usually do but at the same time it's so them. Love it.

    [Verse 1]
    I thought of going in the lake and swallowing
    Thought that I had unplugged the phone until it rang
    When the phases of the moon they don’t apply
    When accomplishing a simple task takes several tries

    [Chorus 1]
    Did you want to forget about life?
    Did you want to forget about life with me tonight?
    Underneath this flickering light
    Did you want to forget about life with me tonight?

    [Verse 2]
    Left the apartment in a state of disarray
    Tried out the synthesizer you bought yesterday
    When the failures of the past they multiply
    And you trivialize the things that keep your hand from mine

    [Chorus 2]
    Did you want to forget life?
    Did you want to forget about life with me tonight?
    Under the condominium signs
    Did you want to forget about life with me tonight?

    WOO!

    Did you want to forget about life, Did you want to forget about life with me tonight? Underneath this flickering light, did you want to forget about life with me tonight? Inhaling this undrinkable wine.....
    (forget everything tonight)
    forget about life with me tonight? Under the condominium signs, did you want to woah-oh-oh-oh....woah-oh-oh-oh
    (forget everything tonight)

  13. Eka Prasetya
