Alvvays - Saved By A Waif Lyrics




New Saturday
In the park didn't think you fell that hard
Woke up again
Woke up and you wanted a new start
New Saturday
In the park didn't think you fell that hard
Oh Adrian
The silver maple never saw you coming

Stay where you are
State what you are
Stay where you are
And no one gets hurt

You cut your hair
Now you look like a little boy
You climbed the stairs
So high you can't come down from there
Said you wanted to get it together but you don't
Said you wanted to get it together but you won't

Say something, waste something
Change your life
Take something, break something
Make your flight
Say something, anything
Mommy wants you to be a doctor so she can tell her friends
You're like your father
And if it's all for the sake of conversation
Then maybe you should try a new vocation
Oh, saved by a waif and the weight of your wayfarers

Not to be confused with hippies in Toronto

You cut your hair
Now you look like a little boy
You climbed the stairs
So high you can't come down from there
Said you wanted to get it together but you don't
Said you wanted to get it together but you won't
Saved by a waif and the weight of your wayfarers

    anyone know the model of drum machine used at 1:36 ? sounds a bit like the one Eno used for 'In Dark Trees'

    Woke up again
    Woke up and you wanted a new start
    New Saturday
    In the park didn't think you fell that hard
    Oh Adrian

    Stay where you are
    And no one gets hurt

    You cut your hair

    You climbed the stairs

    Said you wanted to get it together but you won't
    Saved by a waif and the weight of your wayfarers

    There is a 2015 version I heard that appear to be slightly different during the "Say Something" portion, however, I have not been able to make them out.

    Benjamin Bogardus

    dominickcave just listened to the gats set, it sounded like "say something waste something
    Change you're life
    Say something waste your day"
