Larrieux, Amel - Mountain Of When Lyrics




Aim To Be Strong
Fiddle With An Arrow
The Shot Is Too Long
Precision Is Not In My Marrow
What's Wrong
With Me Contentedly Singing My Own Song
But Not Heard The Music

The Writings' On The Wall
But I Took The Scenic Route
And I Can't Call
The Number's In The Pocket Of My Jeans
Through It All
Talking The Talk ,Running Before I Walk
Missing The Meaning

[Chorus:]
Plotting The Course
While I'm Stuck At The Bend
Penchant For Rocky Terrain And Dead Ends
Wind Myself Up Just To Unravel Into A Great,
Mountain Of When

Should've Is A Place
I Sometimes Frequent
Yet They Know My Face
Better At I Can't
But If There's A Wait
I Will Is Close By And When Stays Open Late,
The Menu Is Vast

[Chorus]

Predicting The Loss
Before I Begin
So It Don't Cut Too Deep
When I Don't Win
Not Like It's Working
For This Clever Lark
I Can Recite The Story
Behind Every Scar
Predicting The Loss
Before I Begin
So It Don't Cut Too Deep
When I Don't Win
I Hate It When I'm Right
Much Rather Be Wrong
I'd Rather Be Wrong

[Chorus]

    [Verse 1]
    Aim to be strong
    Fiddle with an arrow
    The shot is too long
    Precision is not in my marrow
    What's wrong with me?
    Contentedly singing my own song
    But not heard the music

    [Pre-Chorus]
    The writings' on the wall
    But I took the scenic route
    And I can't call
    The number's in the pocket of my jeans
    Through it all
    Talking the talk, running before I walk
    Missing the meaning

    [Chorus]
    Plotting the course
    While I'm stuck at the bend
    Penchant for rocky terrain and dead ends
    Wind myself up just to unravel into a great
    Mountain of when

    [Verse 2]
    Should've is a place I sometimes frequent
    Yet they know my face
    Better that I can
    But if there's a wait
    I will is close by and when stays open late
    The menu is vast

    [Chorus]
    Plotting the course
    While I'm stuck at the bend
    Penchant for rocky terrain and dead ends
    Wind myself up just to unravel into a great
    Mountain of when

    [Bridge]
    Predicting the loss before I begin
    So it don't cut too deep when I don't win
    Not like it's working for this clever lark
    I can recite the story behind every scar
    Predicting the loss before I begin
    So it don't cut too deep when I don't win
    I hate it when I'm right, much rather be wrong
    I'd rather be wrong

    [Chorus]
    Plotting the course
    While I'm stuck at the bend
    Penchant for rocky terrain and dead ends
    Wind myself up just to unravel into the great
    Mountain of when

    Bernie2020 wow I’ve been listening to this song forever and still didn’t quite know the lyrics. I love ten times more now. Thanks.

  7. Shauna Odiea

    I absolutely loooooove her voice and her pen game is bananas!!! This song moves me so much!

  8. Yasheda Skipper

    just what I need tonight

  9. THE LUXE EXPERIENCE

    She sings my soul

  10. Mary Johnson

    "Predicting a loss before I begin so it don't cut too deep when I don't win... I hate it when I'm right...would rather be wrong."

    My, my, my... I love poetic lyrics that are drenched in painful truth.I wish artists like this were more celebrated.

    lifetime

    Mary Johnson Word sis!!!📣

  11. Leslie Turner

    The lyrics just jumped out at me last night. This song reminds me of me...unfocused, procrastinator, the inability to follow through amongst other things. Though I believe she's talking about her struggle within the music industry and creating her own path when she "should've" done something to be more mainstream. This song could mean so many things.

    This song is sooooo deep.

  12. Shun Jackson

    unusally beautiful, your blouse

  13. Breck Omar Brunson

    Wow, this is some amazing looper, r and b, psychadelic, chant, rap!!

    Nadia Pauline

    Breck Omar Brunson yeah its so dope!

  14. Shaolin325

    This is my lyrical hero...or shero : - )

    "Predicting the loss before I begin, so it don't cut too deep when I don't win"

    Classic

  15. BRI

    one of the best Amel Larrieux creations ever. Love this song.

  16. Pam Gallegos

    I have had this album for awhile, but I only really discovered this song recently...this song tells such a tragic story...reminds me of my mom's sad life...but is now one of my favorite Amel songs. she is such a genius, so underappreciated....

  17. monsterdime

    super crack and collaspse avalanche the mountain of when

  18. Channel2DotNet

    Ms Larrieux aka Sade lite. One the best artist to emerge form the 90's.
