The 1975 – The Birthday Party Lyrics

The Birthday Party By The 1975

Hello, there’s a place I’ve been going
There’s a place I’ve been going
Now I’m clean, it would seem
Let’s go somewhere I’ll be seen
As sad as it seems
I seen Greg and he was like
“I seen your friends at the birthday party
They were kinda f----- up before it even started
They were gonna go to the Pinegrove show
They didn’t know about all the weird stuff
So they just left it” (So they just left it)
I was wasted (I was wasted)
And cold, minding my business

Then I seen the girls and they were all like
“Do you wanna come and get f----- up?”
Listen, I got myself a missus, so there can’t be any kissing
“No, don’t be a fridge, you better wise up, kid
It’s all Adderall now, it doesn’t make you wanna do it”

“This ain’t going well”, I thought that I was stuck in Hell
In a boring conversation with a girl called Mel
About her friend in Cincinnati called Matty as well
You pulled away when I went in for the kiss
No, it wasn’t a diss
You put the tap on to cover up the sound of your piss
After four years, don’t you think I’m over all this?
“That’s rich from a man who can’t s--- in a hotel room
He’s gotta share for a bit”
You make a little hobby out of going to the lobby
To get things that they don’t have

Does it go through ya when I’m talking to ya?
You know that I could sue ya if we’re married
And you f--- up again
Impress myself with stealth and bad health
And my wealth and progressive causes
Drink your kombucha and buy an Ed Ruscha
Surely, it’s a print ’cause I’m not made of it
Look, the f------ state of it
I came pretty late to it
We can still be mates ’cause it’s only a picture
All your friends in one place
Oh, we’re a scene, whatever that means
I depend on my friends to stay clean
As sad as it seems
As sad as it seems
As sad as it seems
