valentine lyrics – fiona apple

valentine

you didn’t see my valentine
i sent it via pantomime
while you were watchin someone else
i stared at you and cut myself

its all ill do cuz i’m not free
a fugitive too dull too flee
i’m amorous but out of reach
a still life drawing of a peach

i’m a tulip in a cup
i stand no chance of growing up
i’ve made my peace i’m dead i’m done
i watched you live to have my fun

i root for you, i love you [x2]

i made it to a dinner date
my teardrops seasoned every plate
i tried to dance but lost my nerve
i cramped up in the learning curve

i’m a tulip in a cup
i stand no chance of growing up
i’m resigned to sail on through
in the wake of tales of you

i root for you, i love you [x4]
