Wolf Alice - The Wonderwhy Lyrics




What happens when we die?
"No, don't ask questions, just make sure you survive"
Lord give me faith so I have boxes to tick
And won't have to suffer the wonderwhy

Bring on the days when I don't give a...
And all I ever seek is pleasure
And I find thrill in sin and desire
And warm my toes on Hell's fire

Don't leave me here when I'm not sold
Don't leave me here when I'm not sold
Don't leave me here when I'm not sold
Don't leave me here when I'm not sold

Don't leave me here when I'm not sold
Don't leave me here when I'm not sold
Don't leave me here when I'm not sold
Don't leave me here when I'm not sold

Don't leave me here
Leave me thinking for myself
When I can't remember the days of the week
The weeks of the month, and the months of the year
Where do we go? Go from here?
Sit writing lists and just wait for things to appear?

Don't leave me here at sixes and sevens
Shot to pieces begging the heavens
Begging hellfire and rattling the gate
Starting a riot and planning escape
Baby's growing up and asking questions
Looking for help for life in lessons
Baby's growing up, a life explosion
Drinking the milk, but locking the bedroom

Don't leave me here, I'm not sold
Don't leave me here, I'm not sold

[Hidden Track:]

I spied you on the tall brick wall
You sat smoking cigarettes
Teach me, teach me, teach me rock 'n' roll

No, I'm not a fighter
I'm just angry all the time
So teach me, teach me, teach me rock 'n' roll

My love bends rules
My love is cool
My love bends rules
My love is cool

    What happens when we die?
    "No, don't ask questions, just make sure you survive"
    Lord give me faith so I have boxes to tick
    And won't have to suffer the wonderwhy

    Bring on the days when I don't give a...
    And all I ever seek is pleasure
    And I find thrill in sin and desire
    And warm my toes on Hell's fire

    [Chorus]
    Don't leave me here when I'm not sold
    Don't leave me here when I'm not sold
    Don't leave me here when I'm not sold
    Don't leave me here when I'm not sold

    Don't leave me here when I'm not sold
    Don't leave me here when I'm not sold
    Don't leave me here when I'm not sold
    Don't leave me here when I'm not sold

    [Breakdown]
    Don't leave me here
    Leave me thinking for myself
    When I can't remember the days of the week
    The weeks of the month, and the months of the year
    Where do we go? Go from here?
    Sit writing lists and just wait for things to appear?


    [Outro]
    Don't leave me here at sixes and sevens

    Baby's growing up and asking questions
    Looking for help for life in lessons
    Baby's growing up, a life explosion
    Drinking the milk, but locking the bedroom

    Don't leave me here, I'm not sold
    Don't leave me here, I'm not sold

    So teach me, teach me, teach me rock 'n' roll

    My love bends rules
    My love is cool
    My love bends rules
    My love is cool
    La-la-la-la la-la-la-la
    La-la-la-la la-la-la-la

  17. sienna

    'Where do we go? Go from here? Sit writing lists and just wait for things to appear?' lol this line makes me so sad

    Frank Lott

    this is one of the best bands in the world

    Chris Morton

    @Frank Lott my friend you are not wrong.

  18. Romeo Corgan

    No don't ask questions just make sure you survive

    -Luna Lovegood-

    "No hagas preguntas, sólo asegurate de sobrevivir"

  19. Fela Goerz

    5:06 :)

  20. captain_ahab

    is Ellie Christian? or am I misinterpreting this song?

    J Clarke

    Judging from this and her other songs, i would suggest that she was a christian, but lost faith and is now atheist/ agnostic. Don't take my word, just my suggestions 🙂

    TheFunnybone

    'Dont leave me here, when I'm not sold' ... I think it's her admission of agnosticism. She's left here, on Earth, to wonder why and the comfort that used to give answers is leaving her, but the questions remain...I imagine, naturally, she misses it, but cant will herself to a belief.

    Eis Lakkon

    Dont leave me here...(please god(? ))

  21. Jason T.

    Fuckin' A. Too good.

  22. Chris Dighton

    The bonus track starts at 5:03. you can thank me later...

    captain_ahab

    +Chris Dighton  any idea what this song is about?

    Chris Dighton

    @captain_ahab I have other ideas, but it could literally be as simple as when you start learning music when you're young, and like a friend starts teaching you or something...

    Romeo Corgan

    @captain_ahab not being a jerk but if you don't know wow!

    johthon1

    you are being a jerk

    William Collier

    its about dying man
