Laura Mvula Jump Right Out

Thought it’d be easy, thought you might know me by now.

But we got caught up in the green water down in the deep.

We go the long way, headed to nowhere, right from the start.

How did we get here, wish I could tell you

I thought we had time.

You jumped right out again,

You say you can’t pretend.

Said you didn’t need me, love,

The grass needed rain,

You was hoping that one day

Maybe things will change.

You jumped right out again,

You say you can’t pretend.

So maybe one day we’ll find the answers out in the blue.

And maybe we’ll get there holding another’s marvelous dreams.

We ride the seasons, soul changing colors, we never could know.

We’re nearly drowning, fighting for something

You said we’d be fine, I thought we had time.

You jumped right out again,

You say you can’t pretend.

Said you didn’t need me, love,

The grass needed rain,

You was hoping that one day

Maybe things will change.

We ride the seasons, outchanging colors,

We never could know.

How did we get here, wish I could tell you,

I thought we had time.

You jumped right out again,

You say you can’t pretend.

Said you didn’t need me, love,

The grass needed rain,

You was hoping that one day

Maybe things will change
