undertow lyrics – sara bareilles

silly me, look what i did again
i found what i want
is what i cannot have
i didn’t mean to be so predictable
but i blame it all on who made you irresistible

and it isn’t something i need
’til you tell me i can’t
why wear my heart on my sleeve
when it looks so good in your hand

my heart breaks in a heart beat
and you storm me when you come and go
the taste of something so sweet should have
warned me ’bout the undertow
oh, i couldn’t find a better man to let me go

little girl, i don’t know why you stay
if i had a feather for every time daddy said that i could fly away
old habits are so hard to break
it’d be a shame to stop now that i’ve started to make really good mistakes

and i don’t know why i must ask
for the forbidden fruit
i saw the snake in the gr*ss
but i had bitten too soon

my heart breaks in a heart beat
and you storm me when you come and go
the taste of something so sweet should have
warned me ’bout the undertow
oh, i couldn’t find a better man to let me go

i should have seen you coming in
should recognize the signs a wave’s gonna break
now, i’ve given in, why fight it when
i’m resigned to simply live in your wake
your wake

heart breaks in a heart beat
and you storm me when you come and go
the taste of something so sweet should have
warned me ’bout the undertow
oh, i couldn’t find a better man to let me go
no no no no
i couldn’t find a better man to let me go
