Shadowboxer

This song is by Fiona Apple and appears on the album Tidal (1996).

Once my lover, now my friend
What a cruel thing to pretend
What a cunning way to condescend
Once my lover, and now my friend
Oh, you creep up like the clouds
And you set my soul at ease
Then you let your love abound
And you bring me to my knees

Oh, it's evil, babe, the way you let your grace enrapture me
When well you know I'd be insane - to ever let that dirty game recapture me

You made me a shadowboxer, baby
I wanna be ready for what you do
And I've been swinging around me
Cause I don't know when you're
Gonna make your move

Oh, your gaze is dangerous
And you fill your space so sweet
If I let you get too close
You'll set your spell on me
So darlin' I just wanna say
Just in case I don't come through
I was on to every play
I just wanted you

But oh, it's so evil, my love, the way you've
No reverence to my concern
So I'll be sure to stay wary of you, love
To save the pain of
Once my flame and twice my burn

And so I'm a shadowboxer, baby
I wanna be ready for what you do
And I've been swinging around at nothing
I don't know when you're going to make your move

Yeah, I'm a shadowboxer, baby
I wanna be ready for what you do
And I've been swinging around me
Cause I don't know when you'll make your move
