“darjeeling” is the fifteenth track on FKA twigs’ mixtape, CAPRISONGS, in which she is joined by British artists Jorja Smith and Unknown T for an ode to London—their first collaboration together.

Over an electro-drill beat, each artist recounts their journey to the London music scene and how lonely it can sometimes be; while in the chorus, twigs interpolates Olives’ song “You’re Not Alone” to describe London as a place so diverse that anyone can feel at home.

Additionally, the term ‘darjeeling’ refers to a tea grown in the former British-ruled regions of India, which may allude to the rich multicultural diasporas that have emerged in the British capital due to centuries of colonisation.

Lyrics

[Intro: FKA twigs]
You’re not alone
I’ll wait till the end of time
Open your mind
Surely it’s plain to see

[Refrain: FKA twigs]
Hit OT, a track superstar
Crystal Palace, brap-brap-brap
Linford Christie Stadium
Ev-every Tuesday, flaggin’ the boy
Athletes low-key cappin’ a lot
Croydon College stackin’ like what?
Love so big, I’d give him my all
East or South, we’re dreamin’ it all
Body hot like cookin’ for long
We like to make love like wildest of dogs
I was on his side, fifty-five to making a prof’
Body hot like cookin’ for long
We like to make love like wildest of dogs
I was on his side, East or South, we’re dreamin’ it all

[Verse 1: Jorja Smith, FKA twigs & Both]
Ran towards the lights, thought I could find (Yeah)
Somethin’ bigger than the town that I had left behind
I remember packin’ up my bags, not sayin’ my goodbyes
Walsall used to be a place that only ever stopped my dreams
And my home is where my heart is
Feel so alone in a city so big
‘Cause I used to know the person that lived at twenty-three
And try and smell the flowers that weren’t on the Caldmore green
Gettin’ off the 6 at Oysters just to spend my 30p

[Pre-Chorus: FKA twigs]
And I, I was just gettin’ to know myself
The city had broke me in
Inside, diallin’ my confidence up
About my hair and my skin, yeah

[Chorus: FKA twigs, & Jorja Smith, Jorja Smith]
You’re not alone
I’ll wait ’til the end of time (Ah)
Open your mind (Ah)
Surely it’s plain to see

[Refrain: FKA twigs]
Hit OT, a track superstar
Crystal Palace, brap-brap-brap
Linford Christie Stadium
Every Tuesday, flaggin’ the boy
Athletes low-key cappin’ a lot
Croydon College, stackin’ like what
Love so big, I give him my all
East or South, we’re dreamin’ it all

[Verse 2: Unknown T]
Listen
Had to clean out my heart, mind, body and soul
That London city’s my home
She love Mayfair, come bare bleak in your toes
Build bricks and the sticks, can we remake though?
Invest in my flow till my young boy lookin’ your Brooklyn robe
Back then used to boot, like we do up pro
Now it’s flimsy ‘part from the block, bad days
‘Cause we show down shows (Shows)
Should I choose that Gucci or LV coat?
Yo, I’m Black in the hood unclothed
The bando’s boomin’, my pastry comes from rotatin’ phones
Gon’ step to the hoods, gon’ clear
So much patience is greatness, call me bacon (Toast)
Don’t go stop, know practice makes perfect
Girl, if you don’t know, leave it to me, I’m cool

[Bridge: FKA twigs]
Started out a country girl, wildly haired and gappy grin
Had to change a couple schools ’cause I wasn’t fittin’ in
Take it straight to London, dream it big, and let it grow
Just so you know
Feel so alone when the city gets cold
I’ve known that I’d make it since I was a young girl (World)
The world is right there, I hear it calling
But home is a place that makes my heart sing

[Chorus: FKA twigs, Jorja Smith, Both]
You’re not alone
I’ll wait ’til the end of time (Ah)
Open your mind (Ah)
Surely it’s plain to see

[Outro: FKA twigs, Jorja Smith]
You’re not alone (Not alone)
I’ll wait ’til the end of time for you (Ah)
Open your mind (Open your mind)
Surely it’s time to be with me
