Rocket

Miriam Bryant

Rocket Lyrics

[Verse 1]
I know I never had, had you in my grasp
And I held your hand, like it was broken glass
And now isn't the time for people
Come around and remind me of you
Just because it shines, it doesn't make it gold
You are just a troll and you dug yourself a hole
Now isn't the time for people
Come around and think they know the truth
No it isn't the time for the likes of you
I check the clock and tic and toc it through

[Pre-Chorus]
And my eyes won't sleep
And my heart won't beat
It's over baby, 'cause I can't breathe

[Chorus]
So I rocket, rocket, rocket away
I rocket, rocket, rocket away
I rocket, rocket, rocket
I'm rocketin' away, I rocket 'cause I need space
I rocket 'cause I need space


[Verse 2]
I see cracks in my window, the secret that we told
That we were lovable, wrote everything in bone
Now isn't the time for people
Come around and think they know the truth
No it isn't the time for the likes of you
I check the clock and tic and toc it through

[Pre-Chorus]
And my eyes won't sleep
And my heart won't beat
It's over baby, 'cause I can't breathe

[Chorus]
So I rocket, rocket, rocket away
I rocket, rocket, rocket away

I rocket, rocket, rocket
I'm rocketin' away, I rocket 'cause I need space

Oh my love, oh my love
How we love but I let go
Oh my love, oh I'm rocketin' away
I rocket 'cause I need space

[Bridge]
Mouth won't speak
And my lungs won't breathe
We're over baby, you and me

[Chorus]
So I rocket, rocket, rocket away
I rocket, rocket, rocket away
I rocket, rocket, rocket
I'm rocketin' away, I rocket 'cause I need space

Oh my love, oh my love
How we love but I let go
Oh my love, oh I'm rocketin' away
I rocket 'cause I need space

About “Rocket”

“Rocket” is Swedish singer-songwriter Miriam Bryant’s second single release in 2017, and centers around a break-up and taking a new direction.

The song was written together with her producer while drunk on Sangria by the pool in Crete. The release was put on hold though, as she didn’t like it as much as she did when first writing it. She stated that this was “probably because she became herself again when coming home.” Originally, according to Miriam, the song was supposed to sound sadder.

Together with “Black car,” “Everything” and three more unreleased songs, “Rocket” will be included in her new EP, set to be released later in 2017 as a follow-up to “Hisingen Och Hem Igen.”

  • What have the artists said about the song?

    Swedish:

    Det känns kul och pirrigt att äntligen släppa “Rocket”. Ofta brukar jag se livet från den mörka sidan, men den här gången har jag skrivit från den ljusa sidan. Jag är peppad!

    – Miriam i ett pressmeddelande.

    English:

    It feels fun and a little bit jittery to finally release “Rocket.” Usually I see life from the dark side, but this time I wrote it from the light side. I’m psyched!

    – Miriam in a press release (translated from Swedish).
