But success it never comes
And I’m the only one who laughs
At your jokes when they are so bad
But they’re not as bad as this.
Come join us in a prayer
We’ll be waiting, waiting where
From their debut studio album Slanted and Enchanted, released in 1992 when I was twenty two. Pavement were/are one of my favourite bands and their albums formed the soundtrack to my twenties and thirties. Now forty-nine (and much happier than I was in my twenties and thirties) I still sing this song to myself even if I don’t play it that often anymore.
Thank you very much for reading (and listening!)
