A Lot To Learn

by Duncan Jones

I was in the ocean just so I could see
When a giant shark came face to face with me
And I waited there and thought that I was done
But she laughed, and then she told me I could run
And “By the way … I’m not the scary one
No, you’ve still got a lot to learn my son ...”
And then I knew that she was right, right
As she turned back to the night, night
I was all alone …
And I knew that she was right

I was walking in the grass so I could see
When a lone gazelle passed just in front of me
And I asked her do you think that we should run?
She laughed and said, “I think it would be fun!”
And “By the way … I’m not the fastest one
No, you’ve still got a lot to learn my son ...”
And then I knew she was right, right
And she turned back to the night, night
I was all alone …
And I knew that she was right

I was in the jungle just so I could see
When a silverback stood up in front of me
And I waited there and thought that I was done
But he laughed, and then he told me I could run
And “By the way … I’m not the strongest one
No, you’ve still got a lot to learn my son ...”
And then I knew he was right, right
And he turned back to the the night, night
I was all alone …
And I knew that he was right
