Trip Away

Trip Away is a Jane’s Addiction song written by Perry Farrell and Dave Navarro during the summer of 1986.

Lyrics

Momma, lick on me now
No care
Put me on the bad side
Oh, so bad
I wanna make you love
Wanna, wanna watch your eyes
Dig them in a honey glaze
Mirror mine
Roll them high
Wanna make them

Drip away
Trip away
Trip away
Trip away
Gonna trip away
Trip away
Way out
Way out

Oh mama, lick on me now
I’m as tasty as a red plumb
Baby thumb
And I wanna make you love
Wanna be wild animals
Lay down in a shady den
See the spring
Color in
Watch the stoney winter

Drip away
Trip away
Trip away
Trip away
Gonna trip away
Trip away
Way out
Way out

Take my eye
Do not wonder why
I’ve come to curx
I’ve looked it up and down
Trespassers trample themselves
As the miser makes love with his wealth
Convenience – his lure!

Tripped away the summer days
Some are gone
Some are O.K.
Summers gone and
Some are makin’ love
I love to watch you babe
Love to watch you babe

Drip away
Trip away
Trip away
Trip away
Gonna trip away
Trip away
Way out
Way out
