She Just Wants To Be - Lyrics by Rem


Lyrics
It's not that she walked away

Her world got smaller

All the usual places

The same destinations

Only something's changed.


It's not that she wasn't rewarded

With pomegranate afternoons

And Mingus, Chet Baker and chess

It's not stampede and fortune

Of prim affectations

She's off on a riot(?)

And she knows now

Is greater than the whole

Of the past

Is greater and now she knows


She just wants to be somewhere

She just wants to be.

She just wants to be somewhere

She just wants to be.


It's not that the transparency

Of her earlier incarnations

Now looked back on

Were rich and loaded

With beautiful vulnerability

But now she knows

Now is greater

And she knows that.


She just wants to be somewhere

She just wants to be

She just wants to be somewhere

She just wants to be.


Now is greater

Now is greater

And she knows that.


She just wants to be somewhere

She just wants to be.

She just wants to be somewhere

She just wants to be.


She just wants to be somewhere

She just wants to be.

She just wants to be somewhere

She just wants to be.


It's not like if angels

Could truly look down

Stir up the trappings
A light on the ground

Remind us of what, when, why or who

The how's up to us

Me and you

And now is greater than the whole

Of the past

Is greater and now she knows that.


Now she knows.
