Alvvays - Lollipop (Ode to Jim) lyrics

Saw Jim Reid in the corridor And I wondered if he could ever see me that way He was on my list at the grocery store When you grabbed my wrist and said you liked my keychain Read your feature in the weekly paper And honestly I found it a little bit bloated Friday we fell through the coffee table And that’s when I discovered that my heart exploded How How You’re a lollipop In the form of a lightning bolt You’re a lollipop in my hair But I’m a gumdrop Am I ever gonna fit that mould? Because I don’t have the patience to wait in line for you When I came back to apologize You asked me if I was intrigued by LSD I sat next to you on the picnic bench And before I knew it you were flying next to me I met your baby at the exposition And frankly I found it a little unnerving I let you know when we were driving home And all I can remember is the fact that we're swerving Lollipop In the form of a lightning bolt You’re a lollipop in my hair (How could I ever obtain you?) But you’re a doorstep When you’re lying on the bathroom floor And I don’t have the time to wait in line for you (How could I ever betray you?) Alter my state to get through this date (You're alone in this picture) (and it swallows me whole) Alter my state to get through this date (You're alone in this picture) (and it swallows me whole) Alter my state to get through this date (You're alone in this picture) Alter my state to get through this date (and it swallows me whole) (You're alone in this picture) Alter my state to get through this date You’re a lollipop (How could I ever obtain you?) In the form of a lightning bolt You’re a lollipop in my hair (How could I ever betray you?) You look like Iggy Pop Circa ’73 or ‘4 (How could I ever obtain you?) Because I don’t have the time wait in line for you (How could I ever betray you?) Wait for you
