Alvvays - Not My Baby Lyrics




Now that you're not my baby
I go do whatever I want
No need to turn around to see what's behind me
I don't care
And it's true I've been checking out lately
I go do whatever I want
No need to turn around to see what's behind me
I don't care

Because I'm not really there
I'm not really there

And now that you're not my baby
I'll go do whatever I want
No need to sit at home with the dial tone
'Cause I don't care
And it's true I've been going out lately
And I go do whatever I want
You can write it down with a fountain pen
Close your eyes and then count to ten
You can tell your friends that I don't make sense
And I don't care

Because I'm really not there
I'm really not there

The nite is like a fading radio
The lake was frozen over long ago

Now that you're not my baby
(Now you're not)
Now that you're not my baby
(Now you're not)

You sought an eye
So did I for an island
You sought an eye
So did I for an eye
Traded my rose-coloured shades for a wide lens
Used to make noise now I much prefer silence

Now that you're not my baby
(Now you're not)
Now that you're not my baby
(Now you're not)
Now that you're not my baby
(Now you're not)
Now that you're not my baby
(Now you're not)

I feel alive for the first time
Since I don't know how long
I see a light for the first time
Since I don't know how long

    kenny bob

    Molly was wearing a Morrissey t-shirt during the older KEXP gig

    Neil

    Alex's guitar playing is so clearly influenced by Johnny Marr.

    @Peco Top Gear Fan .

  23. littleniceheart

    alvvays reminds me of Beach House a lot

  24. Moon Along My Head

    This song really hits close to home.
    She's no baby of mine no more, and it's all on me. If only it wasn't as catchy as it is. I'll be damned.

  25. Pai do Magal Showzinho

    Not her baby.

  26. Escaping Reality

  32. Bruce Butthole

    I like this song a little too much

  33. JCTiggs

    I love Alvvays. For some reason their songs take me back to my childhood, there's an old school style to their music.

  34. more thais

    very nostalgic

  35. Boris Medarski

    Best part 00:00 - 4:17

  36. tiniak le niak

    So mature!! I'm in love, right now ♥ +kisses from France

  37. jamsee1

    The motto of this song is that if nobody cares around that you've found that you thought were good, then you can go and live freely with yourself... letting go of those feelings on paper and move on with life. It's a lovely authentic song to many who understand it. You can see happiness even in a sad song :) Love Alvvays music

  38. Alaeldin Babiker

    Amazing

  39. Diaz Albani

    this song makes me happy and sad in the same time.

  40. mircea dacia lorant brescia

    i discover my group :) awesome really

  41. FullstackJack

    This band is so underrated, go buy their albums to keep them churning out music! I just picked up both on MP3 for $16 and you should too!

    Dan of Xymox

    Not underrated at all. Don't use the word underrated if you don't know what it means. This act, when rated, earns high praise. They may be not well known, not popular, not on everyone's radar... but certainly not underrated.

    ludwigderrote

    @Dan of Xymox so interesting how words (underrated being one of them) get used so wrong so often these days, especially on youtube

  42. TissyD

    "Not My Baby"

    Now that you're not my baby
    I go do whatever I want
    No need to turn around to see what's behind me
    I don't care
    And it's true I've been checking out lately
    I go do whatever I want
    No need to turn around to see what's behind me
    I don't care

    Because I'm not really there
    I'm not really there

    And now that you're not my baby
    I'll go do whatever I want
    No need to sit at home with the dial tone
    'Cause I don't care
    And it's true I've been going out lately
    And I go do whatever I want
    You can write it down with a fountain pen
    Close your eyes and then count to ten
    You can tell your friends that I don't make sense
    And I don't care

    Because I'm really not there
    I'm really not there

    The nite is like a fading radio
    The lake was frozen over long ago

    Now that you're not my baby
    (Now you're not)
    Now that you're not my baby
    (Now you're not)

    You sought an eye
    So did I for an island
    You sought an eye
    So did I for an eye
    Traded my rose-coloured shades for a wide lens
    Used to make noise now I much prefer silence

    Now that you're not my baby
    (Now you're not)
    Now that you're not my baby
    (Now you're not)
    Now that you're not my baby
    (Now you're not)
    Now that you're not my baby
    (Now you're not)

    I feel alive for the first time
    Since I don't know how long
    I see a light for the first time
    Since I don't know how long

  71. Tiar Salah Eddine

    This song is so authentic.

    Mars Violet

    I think that what separates them from other dream pop/indie bands. It's their authenticity.
