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 the stampeding fortune,
Of 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

(chorus)
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, weren't rich
And loaded with beautiful vulnerability
And now she knows

Now is greater
And she knows that

(repeat chorus)

Now is greater, now is greater
And she knows that

(repeat chorus 2x)

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
