locked up lyrics – ingrid michaelson

i have taken a wrong turn?
when will i learn? when will i learn?
shall i show them all my scars?
cherry red bleeding burn

like an angry apple tree
i throw my apples if you get to close to me
but if i look to my right
will i see the one i fight for?
if i look to my right or if i turn to my left
will i see that i’ve kept my heart locked up?
locked up so tight

love, love, love, love is everywhere
but not a drop for me to drink
tie me up and bind my feet
drop me in and watch me sink

like an angry apple tree
i throw my apples if you get to close to me
but if i look to my right
will i see the one i fight for?
if i look to my right or if i turn to my left
will i see that i’ve kept my heart locked up?
locked up

if i was 17 i could find it in between
the cushions of somebody’s couch
i could find it, i could find it
if i was 17 i could find it in a dream
a dime a dozen kind of love
i could find it i could find it

but i’m not 17
and i lost it in between the birthday cakes
and past mistakes that roll on by

but if i look to my right
will i see the one i fight for?
if i look to my right or if i turn to my left
will i see that i’ve kept my heart locked up?
locked up so tight
