Trying to pick up the pace, trying to make it so I never see your face again.
Time to throw this away. Want to make sure that you never waste my time again."
How does it feel, oh how does it feel to be you right now, dear?
You broke this apart, so pick up your piece and go away from me.
Please just let me go now, please just let me go. Would you please just let me go now? Please just let me go.
Jones and Danger Mouse first worked together when the producer called upon Jones to contribute vocals to his acclaimed 2011 album 'ROME,' and their connection proved deep enough that they decided to collaborate on Jones’ fifth studio album. Little Broken Hearts, which features original songs co-written by Jones and Danger Mouse, is the fascinating next step in the artistic evolution of one of the most intriguing singers to have emerged in the past decade. Together they have married their highly personal styles to create an entirely new sound, according to NoraJones.com.
