Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I wanna know when (yeah)
Can we touch di road again
Everybody keep asking

Tell me

Back to normal
Back to normal
When are, when are we, when are we
When are we going back to normal?
Back to normal
Back to normal

We ah ask
"When we ah go back, go walk pon di street?"
Chuck off and swim inna di beach
Countryside inna di drop top Jeep
Come in high like Blue Mountain Peak
Anywhere we wan' go, we can reach
We always have women pon leash
Memba we nuh pastor, we nuh preach
Up every night like ah we ah make bleach
You know long now me nuh touch road
Touch e dance all wid a truck load
Lockdown, inna house ah get bored
Wan' link up mi bredren and bun ah cup load (yo)
Cah man ah real star, mek we say it prouder
We nuh boost war, we nuh make soda
Wan' go back go link wid di crowd
Long time we nuh smoke some loud

So, tell me
When are we going back to normal?
Back to normal
Back to normal
When are, when are we, when are we
When are we going back to normal?
Back to normal
Back to normal

Lockdown, me nuh see mi girl long time
We only talk pon FaceTime
Every night, every day time
Long fi mi hand touch up her waistline
Lockdown too long, me need mi gyal
Heart inna pain, cyaan' find Panadol
Imagine, toothache and cyaan' find Cafenol
And everywhere we turn is a next funeral (yeah)
Say, I don't care about teeth and tongue
I wan' party and wheel and tun
Hold on pon mi woman like cheese and bun
Nah let go until Jesus come, yeah
So mek me tell you this mankind
Memba blind cyaan' lead blind
Me tell you more than one time
Nobody cyaan' stop di sunshine

When are we going back to normal?
Back to normal
Back to normal
When are, when are we, when are we
When are we going back to normal?
Back to normal
Back to normal

We ah ask

We can touch di road again




Everybody keep asking
"When can we go back and party with we friend?"
