Lena: Catapult (feat. Kat Vinter & Little Simz)

German singer/songwriter and Eurovision Song Contest 2010 winner Lena Meyer-Landrut, better known mononymously as simply Lena has today unveiled her new single titled ‘Catapult’, which features fellow German artist Kat Vinter and rapper Little Simz. Little Simz is riding the hype of her latest release A Curious Tale of Trials + Persons which has seen approval from the likes of Kendrick Lamar and Mos Def.

Lena explains: “I wanted to continue doing pop, something that reaches people, and not end up playing overly intellectual music in a basement. But I still want to introduce more of my own artistic vision.”

The song becomes the second official single taken from her most recent album and fourth of her career “Crystal Sky“. Lena also confirmed this song as the proper new single on the British market and another taste before the arrival of the international edition of the album, due out later this year.

Lena: Catapult (feat. Kat Vinter & Little Simz) Lyrics:
So still for the longest time
I couldn’t see, Two steps ahead I was blind

I, I, I, I could not decide
When I should dive
Which river will lead to the life
(That I wanted)

Don’t know if you know, But you messed up my space
Just what I needed to move from this place
(That I wanted)

Gave me a reason to open the gate
Just when it felt like it could be too late
Launch me into, launch me into
Another atmosphere
I sing for you, I sing for you
I will not be here

Want you to know, Want you to know, You’re my catapult
Want you to know, Want you to know
Want you to know, Want you to know, You’re my catapult
Want you to know, Want you to know

Just two strangers rendezvous
Make me forget, Everything I ever knew

You, you, you waiting around the bend
A second before
And we will never have met
(coincidence)

Don’t know if you know
But you messed up my space
Just what I needed to move from this place
(coincidence)

Gave me a reason to open the gate
Just when it felt like it could be too late
Launch me into, launch me into
Another atmosphere

Want you to know, Want you to know, You’re my catapult
Want you to know, Want you to know
Want you to know, Want you to know, You’re my catapult
Want you to know, Want you to know

[Rap: Little Simz]
I’m taking off into the sky
You can see me fly
It was you and I
Read between the lines
Tell why you try
Living in a lie
Figured that I might
See you in another life
Please don’t you try me this time
Can’t stand me losing my mind
I’m gone
I been searching just to find
Something that’ll keep me sane while I’m here
Something I can maintain while I’m here
This has never been a game I’m sincere
Promised I will never change I’m making it clear
Boy no fears
This is my truth and you heard it here first
We probably been through the absolute worst
Boy all this drama it might not be worth it
But we’re more than worth it
And that’s why it hurts
Don’t you listen to words
Coming from anybody else but me
Is this even gonna work well we’ll see
What will be will be
But don’t underestimate me, no!

Launch me into, launch me into
Another atmosphere

Want you to know, Want you to know
You’re my catapult
Want you to know, Want you to know

Want you to know, Want you to know
You’re my catapult
Want you to know, Want you to know.
