    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
    of mingus, chet baker and chess.
    It's not stampeding fortune,
    or prim affectations.
    She's off on her own
    but 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

    It's not that transparency
    of her earlier incarnations
    now looked back on, weren't rich
    and loaded with beautiful vulnerability
    and now she knows

    Now is greater
    and she knows that

    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

    It's not like if angels
    could truly look down
    stir up the trappings
    and light on the ground.
    Remind us of what, when, why or who
    that 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.
