St. Vincent - The Party Lyrics




Honey, the party
You went away quickly,
But oh that's the trouble
With ticking and tocking

I licked the ice cube
From your empty glass
Oh we stayed much too late
Till they're cleaning the ashtrays

Do you have change
Or a button, or cash?
All my pockets hang out
Like two surrender flags

Oh, but I'd pay anything
To keep my conscience clean,
I'm keeping my eye on the exits
I'm steady now

Ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh

How did we get here?
With creaks in these chairs
Oh, there aren't enough hands
To point all the fingers

But I sit transfixed
By a hole in your t-shirt
I've said much too much
And they're trying to speak up

Ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh

  17. Phalisaurus

    I too feel like I'm 'keeping my eye on the exit sign, steady now'
    like I could just slip away ...

    Jinan Hussam

    permettre de s'échapper est la raison d'être de l'art, s'abstraire de la réalité toute crue et nue comme l'éclat d'un sabre, cette musique transcende les émotions humaines et donne envie de pardonner à l'humanité entière son ignorance pour y voir à la place son essence divine capable de créer la beauté et la poésie

  18. katie morgan

  37. Teen Majora

    okay so like I'm 13, and this song is like the best thing I have ever heard tbh. I just can't believe that I only found it 3 weeks ago

    apatheticexistence

    DO NOT BREED

    three dee melodie

    no one cares that you're 13

    flying13machine

    I’m so happy that you’re here and found St Vincent!
    You’re loving this song at 13 is a qualifier for genius

    瑩 瑄

    Pro tip: Do not announce your age anywhere. It makes you appear desperate for adult approval, who are ultimately prone to being dumb and have shit taste themselves.

    Kristen Stacey

    Well impressively not mainstream so great job, keep up the exploration of music and it will really open your eyes! :)

  38. Aimless Wander

    One bad thing about this song... it ends

    Aimless Wander

    You're the one that needs to think. Other people understood what I was saying but you...so yeah. Secondly, I'm a girl

  39. Dooby Mcdabby

    how the hell did I not hear this till now , it's amazing

  40. Frances Rebollido

    I can't believe I never heard her music before :( Didn't know I was missing out on so much!

  41. Caspian Sutherland

    Is a bagpipe used in this? I feel like I can hear one nearer the end of the song, but I'm not sure if it's that or a synth of some kind.

  42. Roberto Rivera

    < :c I think I get the lyrics, she was at a party with someone she was dating, but he left with someone else and she got friendzoned... < 8c THE FEELS!

    The Sad Mafioso
