31 days of music – day one

Posted on

This song hell this whole album shaped me when I was nineteen. This song was everything I wanted to tell my boyfriend at the time but didn’t. And her voice is so sexy! I miss music like this. 

Fiona Apple 

“Sleep To Dream”

I tell you how I feel
But you don’t care
I say tell me the truth
But you don’t dare
You say love is a hell
You cannot bear
And I say gimme mine
Back and then go there
For all I care
I got my feet
On the ground
And I don’t go to
Sleep to dream
You got your head
In the clouds
And you’re not at
All what you seem
This mind, this body
And this voice cannot be
Stifled by your deviant ways
So don’t forget what I told you
Don’t come around
I got my own hell to raise

I have never been
So insulted in all my life
I could swallow the seas
To wash down all this pride
First you run like a fool
Just to be at my side
And now you run like a fool
But you just run to hide
And I can’t abide

I got my feet
On the ground
And I don’t go
To sleep to dream
You got your head
In the clouds and
You’re not at all
What you seem
This mind, this body
And this voice cannot be
Stifled by your deviant ways
So don’t forget what I told you
Don’t come around
I got my own hell to raise

Don’t make it a big deal
Don’t be so sensitive
We’re not playing
A game anymore
You don’t have
To be so defensive
Don’t you plead me your case
Don’t bother to explain
Don’t even show me your face
‘Cause it’s a crying shame
Just go back to the rock
From under which you came
Take the sorrow you gave
And all the stakes you claim
And don’t forget the blame

I got my feet
On the ground
And I don’t go
To sleep to dream
You got your head
In the clouds and
You’re not at all
What you seem
This mind, this body
And this voice cannot be
Stifled by your deviant ways
So don’t forget
What I told you
Don’t come around
I got my own hell to raise
