Pavement - Date With Ikea Lyrics




The actress is always breaking things
The things you made she took you for
And I'm so tired I'd be lying
I hope the prarie buys you more
The fitness coast is growing near
The shores they don't stay blond this year
That's why the marblelawn stays clear and warm in time
I want to stay but my time is wasting
Magic lands call my name
They want to fire a missle launcher to the sky
I know I need to stay
And we all know that by staying here
It will be a good high this year
So what's the use of staying there
If you've got no use for time
The fitness coast is growing near
The shores they don't stay blond all year
The continent moves with growing fear
It's all for expensive lawn
I want to stay but my time is wasting
Magic lands call my name
They want to fire a missle launcher to the sky
I know I need to stay
I know I need to stay and fight the day
I know I need to stay and fight the day
I know I need to stay and fight the day

    Frikn Brilliance...

  2. Anthony Navarro

    Spiral Stairs!! 💯🎼

  3. Nathan Miller

    Late 90's will never die. This one is a bit polished and a bit too clean, but all the awful dirt came in, this group hits hard.

  4. Marc Landry

    Want this played at my funeral

  5. PiscesPesci

    Malkmus's voice REALLY ruins this song!

    skeletonjelly

    it's not malkmus singing though, it's Spiral Stairs

  6. Adam Banks

    You can't sound much more like Guided By Voices...

    zacatecanjack

    that's a stretch

    Most Weasel

    @zacatecanjack I can sort of see it tbh, but it's a bit of a stretch, yeah.

  7. ONeirda

    Too much distortion.

  8. Skyler Drayfant

    What's a fitness coast anyways?

    Brighten your fucking corners friends

  13. Carlo Marchiori

    Best Byrds' song

  14. GoHawksGo

    The actress is always breaking things
    The things you made she took you for
    And I'm so tired I'd be lying
    I hope the prarie buys you more
    The fitness coast is growing near
    The shores they don't stay blond this year
    That's why the marblelawn stays clear and warm in time
    I want to stay but my time is wasting
    Magic lands call my name
    They want to fire a missle launcher to the sky
    I know I need to stay
    And we all know that by staying here
    It will be a good high this year
    So what's the use of staying there
    If you've got no use for time
    The fitness coast is growing near
    The shores they don't stay blond all year
    The continent moves with growing fear
    It's all for expensive lawn
    I want to stay but my time is wasting
    Magic lands call my name
    They want to fire a missle launcher to the sky
    I know I need to stay
    I know I need to stay and fight the day
    I know I need to stay and fight the day
    I know I need to stay and fight the day

    bigstar66

    So the song title has fuck all to do with the rest of the lyrics. Sounds like Pavement to me.

    Mark

    bigstar66 well yeah- but nah bro needing to stay where you're at means you need some furniture- get me?

    Mark

    Damn I always thought he said confinement after I know I need to stay

  15. teddypicker

    Does anyone think the scene in Ikea in the film 500 Days of Summer was inspired by this tune?

    Jacob Storey

    I hope not..i hate that film

  16. FUCKOFF FASCISTGOOGLESPIES

  18. Jonasakos

    this song makes me want to go out and buy furniture

  19. anwmattos

  20. Corn Maze // shmood3000

    The beginning kinda sounds like The Beatles.

  21. Grant Castle

    Dustin

    check it out: internet.internet

  22. theitshows

    @WeezerFan4Ever your name rocks

  23. Teethgrinder 83

    huh? i cant stand pink but ive been reading the posts and....if someonoe thinks they sound the same then it still sounds like pink whether or not pavement is older i mean this is an arguement about english not freaking music lmao

  24. hhhhh

    @ybrik222 dude. who the fuck cares? that was just an annoying thing to say and if you cant see why you are a jackass

  25. bunkle

    best pavement song

  26. Contains Bitterant

    either way

  27. phil dill

    sounds like something from GBV's Bee Thousand album. Great tune.

  28. ybrik222

    @bluuuuhh

    Wow, sorry for offending you so much. O.o

  29. bluuuuhh

    @ybrik222 first off, i said it kinda starts off like "trouble"-KIND OF....Your not the first to "correct" people's observations on the comment baords. I don't need to say that "it" sounds like "it" just cuz "it" is more current. "It" still sounds like "It". I come on here and occasionally post commects as a liesurly thing, I don't get caught up in making perfectly crafted critiques, i do it cuz i'm interested in the music and it feels good to share with people who have similar taste.

  30. ybrik222

    @bluuuuhh

    I mean that you should be saying that Pink's "Trouble" sounds like this, and not the other way around.

  31. bluuuuhh

    @ybrik222 wats ur point? or "oh, thanx for pointing that out, i didnt know that..." -_- plz....

  32. ybrik222

    @bluuuuhh

    This song's older than any of Pink's albums. -_-

  33. bluuuuhh

    starts off kinda like pink's trouble hehe, like that song but LOOOOVE THIS SONG!!
