love ridden lyrics – fiona apple

love ridden, i’ve looked at you
with the focus i gave to my birthday candles
i’ve wished on the lidded blue flames
under your brow
and baby, i wished for you

n*body sees when you are lying in your bed
and i wanna crawl in with you
but i cry instead

i want your warm, but it will only make
me colder when it’s over
so i can’t tonight, baby

no, not baby anymore – if i need you
i’ll just use your simple name
only kisses on the cheek from now on
and in a little while, we’ll only have to wave

my hand won’t hold you down no more
the path is clear to follow through
i stood too long in the way of the door
and now i’m giving up on you

no, not baby anymore – if i need you
i’ll just use your simple name
only kisses on the cheek from now on
and in a little while, we’ll only have to wave

no, not baby anymore – if i need you
i’ll just use your simple name
only kisses on the cheek from now on
and in a little while, we’ll only have to wave
