Arcade Fire - Women Of A Certain Age Lyrics




Women of a certain age
Made to feel they gotta change
Some of them change their faces
But they don't smile the same
Some of them take night courses
Some of them get divorces
As the world gets strange
It's time for a change

Go and let your men get strange markings
Go and let the world get strange
Never change

Women own the world tonight
'Cause all the boys, they just wanna fight
And women of the world are born
To all the boys little wars
Mother, sister, daughter
The boys, they just can't father
It's time to take the ranks
When it's away from the strange

Go and let your men get strange markings
Go and let the world get strange
But never change
Never change
Never change

Arcade Fire Women Of A Certain Age Comments
  1. Ironyology

    i wish this idea was fully developed

  2. Simon Drolet

    Pretty sure it's about how women of 'a certain age' are no longer considered young & beautiful. The song is about how some women deal with losing their youthful appearance (made to feel they gotta change). Some get plastic surgery (change their faces but dont smile the same), some go back to school to finish their education (take night courses), some are left for younger women (get divorces). It's about being yourself and not letting a man dictate what feminine beauty is.

    All the lines about men in this song refer to the patriarchy of society.

    lyinsroar

    I like that it can have a double meaning. like women of a certain age, or he's referring to an "age" as "women of a certain society" (day and age kind of thing)

    WOMEN OF A CERTAIN AGE

    Woman of a certain age
    Made to feel like they've gotta change
    Some of them change their faces
    But they don't smile the same
    Some of them take like horses
    Some of them get divorces
    As the world gets strange
    It's time for a change

    Go on let your men get strange mama
    Go on let the world get strange
    Never change

    Women of the world unite
    It's all the boys, they just wanna fight
    And women of the world are born
    To the boys little wars
    Mother, sister, daughter
    The boys are just killing father
    It's time to take the reigns
    And lead us away from the strange
    Go on and let your men get strange, mama
    Go on let the world get strange
    But never change
    Never change
    Never change

  6. Jake Stangle

  7. Christopher

    On my first listen through I wouldn't have thought that this would be my favourite, but it might well be. Great tune.

    Bonesaw

    +Christopher Hendrickson I have so many songs like that with Arcade Fire. Most of my favorites are songs I did not really care for the first few listens.

    Moonchild

    +Christopher Hendrickson One of the reasons it became my fav is slightly reminds of The Strokes when they utilize reggae.

  8. Choco torro

    such a bassy leit motiv throughout this album

  9. Laruularuu

    fucking love this band so much is unreal

  10. ticklehug

    Ancient Documentaries trash

    asstral

    Dorian Emin-Jeong it's not that bad actually

    Pato Bad

    Its bee 2 years since your comment, the new album is out since almost a year ago! What do you think about Everything Now?

  11. Ghonx jc

    Getting a real Funeral vibe from this song.

    Ryan Abram

    +Ghonx jc This sounds nothing like Funeral....

    Ghonx jc

    +Ryan Abram not in sound, but motive. It has the same innocence and optimism funeral has.

    Benjamin Jackson

    +Ghonx jc Reminds me a little of Haiti.

  12. Matt Michaud

    So great. Arcade Fire can pull off anything, including reggae.
