Music Monday

Music Monday: In Undertow (Alvvays)

I promise I will be doing some more bookish posts this week! I plan a February book haul and a Wrap-Up for a start (I am just running a bit behind!) and there should be a review sometime this week as well. Life has simply gotten in the way this past week. So it goes sometimes…

Music Monday is a meme created by Drew @ The Tattooed Book Geek, so check out his posts!

In the meantime I wanted to share Alvvays‘s video for In Undertow with you. I am seeing this Canadian band in Amsterdam tomorrow and I can’t wait. I saw them last autumn and they were so so good. This track is from their second album ‘Antisocialites’. Both of their albums are on permanent rotation in my car since forever. I love these guys (and girls). Their music is so lovely and summery!

Lyrics:

You find a wave and try to hold on for as long as you can
You made a mistake you’d like to erase and I understand
“What’s left for you and me?”
I ask that question rhetorically;
Can’t buy into astrology, and won’t rely on the moon for anything

No turning
There’s no turning
There’s no turning back after what’s been said
No turning
There’s no turning
There’s no turning back

Meditate, play solitaire, take up self defense
When you get old and faded out will you want your friends?
What’s left for you and me, you respond to my question metaphorically
Don’t read into psychology and won’t rely on your mood for anything

No turning
There’s no turning
There’s no turning back after what was said
No turning
There’s no turning
There’s no turning back after what’s been said

You find a wave and try to hold on for as long as you can
You made a mistake you’d like to erase and I understand
What’s next for you and me? I’ll take suggestions we toss and turn in undertow
Time to let go

There’s no turning
There’s no turning
There’s no turning back after what’s transpired
No turning
There’s no turning
There’s no turning back I’m so uninspired
No turning
There’s no turning
There’s no turning back
No turning back
