Alvvays - Red Planet Lyrics




It's been almost twenty years on the Red Planet
A place where there are no tears, it is just water floating
No, they're not quite emoting

I dream of the other days, of the times I held you
Left in an autumn blaze, now I idle in bubbles
Just collecting the rubble

Well I waited for you out here, but that was just delusional
And I've painted all these pictures of Earth, but that's unusual
Unusual to you

Met at a seminar, shared the same table
Brushed by you at the bar, didn't match your description
It soon became my prescription

I think of the junipers in the spring growing
Fall up on Jupiter, it doesn't draw a reaction
Temporary distraction

And I've waited for you out here, but that may be delusional
And I've painted all these pictures of Earth, but that's unusual
Unusual to you
Unusual, unusual, unusual to you

And I waited for forever, and that was just delusional
So I've painted all these pictures of Earth, but that's unusual
Unusual, unusual, unusual to you

Alvvays Red Planet Comments
  1. eli wat

    this destroys me in the best way

  2. Chloe

    I can't not hear Kip's wedding song to LaFawnduh: "Why do you love me? Why do you need me? Always and forever."

  3. i'm not cyborg

    216-313aw

  4. Sam van der Linden

    Can anyone explain what the song is about?

  5. Connor RK505

    Beautiful. Just beautiful.

  6. Rami August18

    1.25x feels good

  7. emailnodata

    Ultimate song for engineers and scientists.

  8. YouTube Company

    Speed at 1.25 is just right

    shortyrags

    I'd agree for the verse but it seems a little too fast for the chorus personally. The unusual part specifically.

  9. yogyataa kapoor

    this holds so much meaning

  10. scratchy

    Excellent production, whole track is fab, adds another level to what's already an amazing album

  11. Luther Antwoord

    Molly is Boss

  12. Victoria Bravo

    [Verse 1]
    It's been almost twenty years on the red planet
    ​A place where there are no tears, it is just water floating
    ​No, they're not quite emoting

    ​I dream of the other days, of the times I held you
    ​Left in an autumn blaze, now I idle in bubbles
    ​Just collecting the rubble

    [Chorus]
    ​Well I waited for you out here, but that was just delusional
    ​And I've painted all these pictures of Earth, but that's unusual
    ​Unusual to you

    [Verse 2]
    ​Met at a seminar, shared the same table
    ​Brushed by you at the bar, didn't match your description
    ​It soon became my prescription

    ​I think of the junipers in the spring growing
    ​Fall up on Jupiter, it doesn't draw a reaction
    ​Temporary distraction

    [Chorus]
    And I've waited for you out here, but that may be delusional
    And I've painted all these pictures of Earth, but that's unusual
    Unusual to you
    ​​Unusual, unusual, unusual to you

    And I waited for forever, and that was just delusional
    So I've painted all these pictures of Earth, but that's unusual
    Unusual, unusual, unusual to you

  13. Paolo Soca

    1 año, y es la primera canción que no me canso de escuchar. Sin duda, es mi favorita.

  14. JimmyJoeization

    Sounds like the Beatles could have done this sound for Sergeant Pepper. But they couldn't because this song, like many that Alvvays does, is too well composed and too well played for the lesser talented Beatles. They couldn't touch this, or all of the songs Alvvays creates. Guys like me, of the 60s, must catch the train to keep up. Maybe Brian Wilson or Elton John could have come close. But I think Molly and the group has simply disconnected well from the past rock conductors, composers. Yet I do hear a little Elton, Brian here. It's nice to hear good music once again.

    ClassicRockLivesOn

    Uhh... woah dude, Alvvays is probably my favorite band out there right now, but nobody can touch Brian

    Zippy Lucke

    I dont think a fictitious debate about the beatles is needed lol........ just you know have a good day and try not to over-think music : ) ) ) ) )) )

  15. bellfleurs

    Lavender town music in the beginning? 💜

  16. bobby Lawrence

    This song needed a music video :/

  17. briggytt vera

    I love this music

  18. Ungoliant Marauder

    uhhhh i came

  19. Kyle Brokar

    I liked everybody's comments (except the bigot saying learn english) so they'd come back to this amazing song

    Atlas Unchained

    Kyle Brokar ANYONE I DONT LIKE IS A BIGOT. MEANWHILE I DONT TRY TO TALK TO THEM.

    baconman 2.0

    Imagine being such a retard you think someone is a bigot for saying "learn English". He should learn English, it's a good skill. I learned German to understand German music

  20. Garda Dafi

    holly moly

  21. M P

    A song for engineers.

    FullstackJack

    Explore Earth, not Mars.

  22. Blanca Que Ornelas

    This song reminds me when I was between 6-15 years old and lived in an apartment in the 90 's

    Diego Muñoz

    That nineties feeling alvvays reminds us of our childhood, at least for us who were kids around that time. Where are you from?

    melissa Baltierra

    Hey! I made a music video for this song, you can check it out at https://vimeo.com/233790862

  23. Blanca Que Ornelas

    Sub Spañish? :(

    Blanca Que Ornelas

    I understand the English , but is a bit difficult to hear

    lame loser

    not cool, my dude. not a cool thing to say

    Gregory Guerra Bieberach

    han sido casi 20 años en el planeta rojo
    un lugar donde no hay lagrimas, solo agua flotando
    no, no son muy emocionales.

    sueño con los otros dias, donde te mantenía conmigo
    se fueron con la brisa de otoño, ahora sueño despierta con burbujas
    solo amontono la hojarasca

    bien que te espere , pero era esa iluso
    y pinte estas pinturas de la tierra, pero esa era inusual
    inusual para ti

    te conocí en un seminario y compartimos la misma mesa
    me rozaste en el bar, no coincidías con tu descripción
    pronto te convertiste en mi prescripción

    pienso en los enebros creciendo en primavera
    me pierdo en jupiter, y no genera en mi una reacción
    temporal distracción

    bien que te espere , pero era esa iluso
    y pinte estas pinturas de la tierra, pero esa era inusual
    inusual para ti

    inusual, inusual, inusual para ti

    y te esperé por siempre, pero eso era iluso
    y pinte estas pinturas de la tierra, pero esa era inusual
    inusual para ti


    they are really good lyrics now that I payed attention to them ;)

  24. Kay Bee

    I waited for her out there, but that was just delusional... So I painted all of these pictures... Of Earth but that's unusual... Unusual to you...

    melissa Baltierra

  25. Sheketim

    people from the internet, i need your help. I know I've heard a song very similar to this one, but it's all the time like this one is at the begining. also female singer.
    any ideas?

    Sheketim

    hey, thanks! but I think I've already heard all of them :P

    John Costa

    I know this is SUPER late, but maybe something from Beach House?

    Eric Himes

    Sheketim Maybe Lights, or Metric?

    Musical Thoughts

    Your protector, fleet foxes. You're welcome.

    Muhammad Hidayat

    maybe some song from camera obscura?

  26. Jalees Tamayo

    This song speaks on so many levels

    melissa Baltierra

    Hey guys I made a music video for this song, you can check it out at https://vimeo.com/233790862

  27. Emma Engel

    <3 <3 <3

  28. Andy Houston

    A beautiful, sad song. Thanks for posting.

  29. bnk57

    If I'm losing you.

  30. Arjun Dhir

    I love this song and the pacing as well. There's a lot of emotion conveyed. 

    Something interesting is increasing the speed of the song to 1.5x. Gives it a whole different feel lol.

  31. aracely e.

    such a chill song ➳♡ i love alvvays!!!!

  32. vladastorian

    they don't seem to play this song live , well based on live performance from you tube vids ..

    Arjun Dhir

    @onLYbyMoon Wouldn't be a bad way to close out a show IMO. It doesn't jive with their mostly upbeat pop sound, but would leave a lasting impression and provide some closure to a pumped up crowd.

    Filipomnomnom

    @vladastorian yeah this would blow me apart

    kenny bob

    +Joey Clavette Molly sang it last month in Waterloo

    cookie chop

    Yeah it's not on Spotify anymore either

  33. Soke

    Lovely.
