Alvvays - Party Police Lyrics




Walking through the trees, I never really know what's on your mind
Is it ever me, or just someone you've left behind?
Floating through a dream, I never could make out the words you said
Sentences are bouncing back and forth inside my head

You don't have to leave, you could just stay here with me
Forget all the party police, we can find comfort in debauchery

Fighting through the fog, I can't believe it rained all summer long
When every day's a hurricane, you know there's something wrong
I see you every day, it's hard to figure out what happens next
I cannot decipher conversation in your head

You don't have to leave, you could just stay here with me
Forget all the party police, we can find comfort in debauchery
You don't have to leave, you could just stay here with me
Forget all the local police, we can find comfort in biology

We wrote our names on the overpass and I hope it lasts forever
Don't have to
You don't have to

You don't have to leave, you could just stay here with me
Forget all the party police, we could find comfort in debauchery
You don't have to leave, you could just stay here with me
Forget all the local police, we could find—
If you don't want to, you don't have to

Alvvays Party Police Comments
  1. Chris Morrison

    Molly...please record my song...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w3y8PXVAEVs

  2. Bryete Valiant

    In this piece you seem “the cure"

  3. i'm not cyborg

    302ak- abis

  4. L Y

    Hey you cut out the guitar cord at 3:23 and the drums take over. The live performance was great with it whyd you leave it out?!!!

  5. snake jemmy

    Why does this song makes me just sad? It's like I just feel regret not doing the things in my past, while I am just 19 years old. I feel my life will walkthrough so quickly and then I'll listen to this song and feel that I've been swallowed to a deep hole and all options left is just to lay down and give up.

  6. YTDW2000

    This was so well done at the 2019 CBC Music Festival.

  7. beabee

    this song makes my heart skip a beat. it gives me a nostalgic feeling of happiness and it’s such a beautiful feeling. some days it makes me feel like I’m desperately in love and some days it makes me feel like I’m about to die. and both ways it’s just the most amazing thing.

  8. Zeeroken wav

    Awkward Compilation brought me here

    Rhys __Hnamte

    Me too!! 😂😂😂

    Satyajit Bhattacharjee

    ✋✋😑😑

  9. Jaynes Dean

    Why can't God be one of us 😆
    You won't be able to unhear it.

  10. flyingwillounet

    Those vocal melodies are out of this world.

  11. Tony Alpaquino

    For me, this is happiness and sadness together in a song. Alvvways did an awesome job!

  12. Sudeep Rohit

    The old school tunes just speak to me man..wow those times of our lives are never coming back..good old days

    Fyodor yess

    Joker

    ikr, and I actually grateful to that guy who jumped on the stage during this song, because otherwise I might've never discovered this masterpiece. This song is just... amazing.

    Satyajit Bhattacharjee

    @Joker absolutely

  16. Alexander Silver

    The more songs by this band I hear, the more I love them

  17. Gian Paolo Lopiparo

    Better than antidepressants

    Mohammad Al Hmoush

    Both albums are very good

  18. Awesome Sauce!

    The ending needed to be longer with the sic keyboard jam!

  19. survivor geek

    sounds like a malay song i used to know tho but the vibes, beautiful as alvvays

  20. MR. BLCKMTH

    #ALVVAYS I'M A FAN OF YOU. IM FROM THE PHILIPPINES. I DON'T KNOW WHY IT'S UNDERRATED. IT DESSERVES MORE LIKE WHY THEY DIDN'T LIKED IT. I LOVE ALL YOU SONGS MOLLY...

  21. Zeus 818

    I think I'm in love

  22. Mykola Leshchenko

    The piece starting at 3:35 is haunting me. Does anyone happen to know where I can find more of that twirl?

    Tony Alpaquino

    Мико Лещенко YOU DONT FIND IT. IT FINDS YOU

    peepee poopoo man

    Its the works of an actual music genius. That keyboard part gives me the most trippy and calm relaxing feeling.

    Axyverse

    That part is so goddamn lit

    trefrog

    the chord change right before is devastating and really sets it up

  23. abdurrahman habibie

    i hope there's Indonesia on your tour list 😘

  24. abdurrahman habibie

    i hope there's Indonesia on your tour list 😘

  25. Omar Sabir

    Sad that songs as beautiful as this gets only 160k views

  26. Nistha Shakya

    Reminds me of Tame Impala's the less I know the better..

    And also live sounds much better, I feel.

  27. Black Sky

    What exactly is meant by debauchery? In the context used of course..

    Luffyty

    Bro

    I'm looking for an answer reading the comments but it's nothing


    Hey, if by this time you already had found it pls tell me

  28. chronicleskr

    Casually listening to this for the first time playing pubg. Then all of a sudden as soon as she sings I start to cry lmao. Never happened this baring in mind. Maybe I'm really high but this song depresses me currently

  29. VelociReptar

    The lyrics, for you people.

    Walking through the trees, I never really know what's on your mind
    Is it ever me, or just someone you've left behind?
    Floating through a dream, I never could make out the words you said
    Sentences are bouncing back and forth inside my head

    You don't have to leave, you could just stay here with me
    Forget all the party police, we can find comfort in debauchery

    Fighting through the fog, I can't believe it rained all summer long
    When every day's a hurricane, you know there's something wrong
    I see you every day, it's hard to figure out what happens next
    I cannot decipher conversation in your head

    You don't have to leave, you could just stay here with me
    Forget all the party police, we can find comfort in debauchery
    You don't have to leave, you could just stay here with me
    Forget all the local police, we can find comfort in biology

    We wrote our names on the overpass and I hope it lasts forever
    Don't have to
    You don't have to

    You don't have to leave, you could just stay here with me
    Forget all the party police, we could find comfort in debauchery
    You don't have to leave, you could just stay here with me
    Forget all the local police, we could find—
    If you don't want to, you don't have to

    Titan

  34. sai 42

    Love it! I had to write it :)

  35. earb1

    Listening to your music from Venezuela!!
    Keep going, Alvvays!!
    Amazing band with amazing songs!!

  36. Supernal Verse

    This song basically sums up every relationship I've ever had. It really encompasses the sense of pleading for someone to refrain from abandoning you but not wanting to make them stay against their will on your account. I loved the whole album but this song holds a particularly special place in my heart. I love the melody and just all of it. :)

  37. wanderson vieira

    incrivel a sensibilidade da musica , muito perfeita suave toca a alma e tbm fez parte e ta fazendo parte de uma grande etapa da minha vida . sem palavras pra descrever tal cançao e muito linda e bela ...

    OMFG ZH

    +Cherri Pz Go my here & TG ain't good no more

  54. Elke DG

    waarom hebben de opkomende artiesten allemaal zo een hoge stem?

    martha leezenberg

    omdat het beter past bij de indie muziek van tegenwoordig

  55. Jorge Alberto González

    Los vi en el Corona Capital el pasado 21 de noviembre, estuvieron increíbles! Molly canta muy bien en vivo! Y es hermosísima! I love Alvvays!

  56. Hugo Gonzalez

  61. Carolina Gil

    ¡Yo también quiero ir al Corona Capital! :(

  62. Oscar León

    This is amazing, can't wait to see you in Mexico at Corona Capital in November

  63. David L

    Great song. Reminds me of the disappointments of my youth, the wanting. But how precious all that is. Well said darbonify - melancholy, hopeful, and I would add from the perspective of age, poignant.

    Veemie

    My thoughts exactly

  64. Ely Holds

    I can listen to this whole album on repeat.
    😍

  65. vanhouten64

    I hope they do some more somber/darker songs  like this one on the next album

  66. aracely e.

    love love love this song!! 😍😍

  67. CauseSilenceIsHarder

    Such a great album, makes me feel good.

  68. CanceLsX

    почему-то плачу...

    5M4-5H3R

    @CanceLsX о, привет

  69. Rambo

    Refreshing new sound.

  70. Ruairi McCallan

    Arguably one of the best tracks from one of the best debuts albums of 2014!

  71. darbonify

    This has gone from a good song on a good album to one of my all time favorite songs on one of my all time favorite albums in a few months time. Such incredible sensitivity in the verse melody. Arguably, of the contemporaries, only Stuart Murdoch or James Mercer could write something like this. The song for me is fragile and melancholy but also hopeful and comforting. I haven't been taken or moved by new music in a very long time. Thank you!

    starlite walker

    @darbonify look, son, a pleb!

    unarmed1234

    +starlite walker Its ironic that the guys last name is gay.

    darbonify

    +unarmed1234 I went to see his profile. Looks like one of the guys in the band stole his girlfriend or something. Sociopath warning. It would surprise me if he ever had a girlfriend though.

    NycZooYork

    I know what mean! It took me so long to download thier music but I kept coming back to it now I love it

    Chris Morrison

    Truth! Epic tune, band, singer....I am constantly amazed at her lyrics. Cheers!
