Bird, Jade - My Motto Lyrics

Oh now
It hurts again
'Cause I'm left out
I believed the promises
Oh how
Does it hurt again?
I should know now
Better than to believe him

Ooh ooh, all this sorrow
Ooh ooh, will be gone tomorrow

And that's my motto
Don't let 'em near enough to let me down
All this love ever does is break me now
And if it hurts so much to stay, then let him go
Oh, that's my motto

I'm not a fool
And Lord knows I'll be stupid if I still wanted you
But if I do
I'll repeat the message 'til I don't

Ooh ooh, all this sorrow
Ooh ooh, will be gone tomorrow, morrow, morrow

And that's my motto
Don't let 'em near enough to let me down
All this love ever does is break me now
And if it hurts so much to stay, then let him go
And that's my motto

And if you call, oh no, I won't crawl
Back into your arms, I fall alone
'Cause I'm better off being on my own

And that's my motto
Don't let 'em near enough to let me down
All this love ever does is break me now
And if it hurts so much to stay, then let him go
And that's my motto

That's my motto
My motto
That's my motto

  19. AltoonaYourPiano

    Every now and then you discover a musician that's truly amazing, one that's truly special and memorable. Today I got to discover the incredible talent that is Jade Bird. And I'm so happy that I found this amazingly talented woman. This is an incredible song and a very well-made music video.

  25. John Long

    Absolutely one of the best modern artists in an industry that has become so corrupted. Beautiful.

  26. hhhk20

    Listen to this if you are dying of cancer, and you want something even MORE painful to take your mind off it.

  27. Maki Omakis

    Ure awesome Jade. Don’t change !!!!!!! Industry!!!! R u listening????? Stop making crap shit music that makes people stupid. This is quality music. Quality!!!

  28. Ciaran Eley

    Lol I only know this from it being played on the fucking radio 24/7

  29. adrianmusic777

    An African man i worked with discussed with me my bad luck and suggested I had a shadow following me. It takes all of your good luck away and leaves only bad. Now I've watched Jade Bird Im thinking of taking his advice and getting a man who knows to get rid of it. Once its gone it goes on to some other poor sucker. Very strange as this is my fave song at the moment, I think she sounds like a young Kate Bush. Its just the video with the shadow. It freaked me out.

  30. Helen Fitzgerald

    Tried to play this to my 13 yo daughter who plays guitar, said I thought she could play it, sing it, and she was so rude to me.

  31. Freya x

    sounds a bit like sia elastic heart🤷🏼‍♀️

    Sodapop Jukebox

    Freya x how?

  32. Ragnar

    Who’s here from BBC radio 1 lol

  33. Dane Brass

    but what is her motto?

  34. Anne Bradley

    I love Jade Bird! It's a curious thing how she oftentimes wears jumpsuits, like she's in prison. I just found out that George Washington was murdered andvreplaced by Adam Weishaupt, now that's a shocker. Crooks ARE running our government. So to me, her motto is hanging on, Real Life is her canvas. I just saw a commercial on a photographer who is like-minded and her theme is "Born To Let Go" - wow, and that's what birds do, and keep flying. God bless Jade Bird!

  35. kimfromnewyork

    what a boring song, and what is her fucking moddo anyway?

  36. Cailan_ 7

    Shit song and fucking annoying as fuck and I want to kill myself when listening to her screeching voice, and to top it of she is ugly as fuck

  37. Rich Richards

    Aqualung rip-off. ('Cinderella)

  38. Due_

    fuck today's music, you are so great

  39. Davis E

    This video is brilliant !

  40. Paul Pogba The Black Sensation

    I thought this would've been super popular by now

  41. David Blaze

    I love your late 70's sound please don't ever change unless you want to, but f*ck the industry!

  42. cries in junhui biased


  43. Ruby & Rachel

    Best song of the decade

  44. Mari Dangerfield

    This song gets more and more beautiful and meaningful with each listening ☺️✨

  45. Erick Escoto López

    I don't know if everyone else noticed this, but this great song and "When Im Gonna Lose You" by Local Natives (my favorite songs of March, 2019) both start with same piano note.

  46. Auri Razma

    Make a cover of Smooth operator ☆

  55. Karen Hodgson

    amazing song, I cant wait to see Jade Bird play live

  69. Jezrael Ibarra

    Exellent video

  70. ale14zoppi

    I'll be honest. I don't think this song is at the level of her best ones: Lottery, Love Has All Been Done Before, Uh uh, or I Get No Joy are so much better. The verse is ok, I found the pre-chorus banal and overheard (?), the actual chorus is not bad.

    I expect better 😕

  71. Stier

    This is such a beautiful song😍

  72. Phisek Tanboriphan

    Good Luck ¿?

  95. Tim Jay

    Mmm... piano and strings is a personal favorite and the "ooo" over the D A E change knocked me over. Love the builds and break-downs. Your bridges are always interesting! The video is well-done, congrats to all who had a part in it. The shadow-chase is a very cool idea. Thank you!
