Listen & Lyrics: ‘Runnin Outta Love’ By Jacob Collier and Tori Kelly

By  | 
Jacob Collier and Tori Kelly released their highly anticipated collaboration, “Runnin Outta Love.”
The Late Show with Stephen Colbert will share a remote performance on Monday for their #playathome series.
Djesse Vol. 3 acts as the third installment of Jacob’s multi GRAMMY-winning, four-album series. No. 3 is set to release on August 14. While Vol. 1 was as grand and orchestral as Vol. 2 was eclectic, Vol. 3 is the most unconfined and collaborative display of his songwriting, performing and producing to date, bringing Daniel Caesar, Jessie Reyez, Kiana Ledé, Kimbra, Mahalia, T-Pain, Tank and The Bangas, Ty Dolla $ign, and more on a thrilling and wild exploration of what he describes as negative acoustic space.

 

“Runnin’ Outta Love’ Lyrics:

It ain’t always easy getting close to you
Complicatin’ overthinkin’ every move
I like to think you know the things here in my mind
but here we are, I can’t seem to get this right
I don’t know how to do it, I get so close to you’n
but then you look at me like I’m not there
I’m always thinkin’ bout ya, wanna learn how to love you
Keeping me in the dark it just ain’t fair
I wanna know about it

If you wanna talk about it I’ll be waiting for you to take me
there
So won’t you tell me what you wanna do?
‘cuz baby it don’t matter to me
Even if you say that you’re alone, oh
Even if you wanna let it go, don’t
Keep it to yourself
I wanna make it feel alright
If you been running out, running out, running out of love
Running outta love

Every morning I wake up and you’re not there
but you know i’m always thinking bout you then
I like to think you know the way I feel about you deep inside
but here we are… and I just want to make things right
I don’t know how to do it
Right now we’re going through it
Makin’ you feel like we been going nowhere
But I’m always thinkin’ bout the time we be spending together
Right now I guess I need you more than ever
So tell me all about it
So tell me all about it
I wanna know about it
I wanna know about it

I need to, if we’re gonna go somewhere
So won’t you tell me what you’re going through
‘Cuz baby it don’t matter to me
Even if you say that you’re alone, oh
Even if you wanna let it go, don’t
Keep it to yourself
I wanna make it feel alright
If you been running out, running out, running out of love
Running outta love

I’m sorry I can’t always be around you
I’m sorry if you think I don’t care
I don’t wanna leave you feeling lonely
I been running out running out running outta love
I’m sorry I can’t ways be around you
I’m sorry if you think I don’t care
‘Cuz you will always be my one and only
I been running out running out running outta love
Love
