JoJo Debuts “Jumping Trains” In NYC

Jun 11th, 2011 // 4 Comments

New York-based not-for-profit foundation She’s The First sure had it right when they asked JoJo to perform at their “Girls Who Rock” benefit last night. The Prince fan debuted the title track from her upcoming album Jumping Trains, giving her first live performance of the soulful tune at the Gramercy Theater. And if you missed it, it no longer “Sucks To Be You” — we have the video below.


Think any of the other chicks who performed at “Girls Who Rock” brought the house down quite like JoJo did?

    the lyrics are:
    You keep chuggin along
    on a road to nowhere
    Nobody’s out there,
    Im not even here anymore
    You’re kinda boring me
    You got stuck in your comfort zone
    And it makes me so uncomfortable
    And its not my fault
    That you’re glued to your seat
    I’m sorry.
    And Im getting off this track
    Cause you just hold me back
    Baby your heart is just too strange
    I can’t just be your girl
    Who needs to see the world
    If that’s the thing you can’t arrange
    Then I’ll be jumping trains
    (I’ll be jumpin, I’ll be jumpin)
    (I’ll be jumpin, I’ll be jumpin)
    I’ll be jumping trains
    Its time you wake up
    I remember
    Snowflakes on the ground
    But now, I look outside
    To the sunny fields of green
    (ohh)
    And I hope for the feeling
    That I once had
    With the wind in my hair
    And my life on track
    Getting care with you
    I just need the
    Chance to run away
    I love the lonely track
    Cause you just hold me back
    Baby, your heart is just too strange
    I can’t just be your girl
    I need to see the world
    If that’s something you can’t arrange
    Then I’ll be jumpin
    Mr. Conductor can you
    Stop this train right now
    cause if I stay here with you
    My life will just slow down
    ___ ___ ___ ___ ___
    This thing you gave me(?)
    (I’ll be jumpin, I’ll be jumpin)
    (I’ll be jumpin, I’ll be jumpin)
    I love the lonely track
    Now I’m not lookin back
    Baby your heart is just too strange
    I cant just be your girl
    I need to see the world
    If that’s something you can’t arrange
    Then I’ll be jumping trains
    I’ll be jumping
    (yeah) Trains
    If that’s something you can’t arrange
    Then I’ll be jumping trains
    (I’ll be jumpin, I’ll be jumpin)
    (I’ll be jumpin, I’ll be jumpin)
    (I’ll be jumpin, I’ll be jumpin)
    (trains)
    And I’ll be jumping trains

    I couldn’t make out that one line so if yall will help me out that’d be great!!

    looks promising…she has grown a lot with each album. Her previous label must be kicking themselves now.
