Shadowboxer
by Fiona Apple



four measure into:

verse one:

once my lover now my friend
what a cruel thing to pretend
what a cunning way to condecend
once my lover but 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,oh,oh it's evil babe
the way you let your grace enrapture me
when will you know i'd be insane
to ever let that dirty game recapture me

chorus:

it made me a shadowboxer baby
i wanna be ready for what you do
well i've been swinging wrongly
'cause i don't know when youre gonna make your move

break (five measure)

verse two:

oh your gaze is dangerous
and you fill you space so sweet
if i let you get to close
you'll set your spell on me

so darlin i just wanna say
just in case i don't come through
i was onto every play
i just wanted you

oh oh it's so evil my love
the way you've no reference to my concern
so i'll be sure to stay weary of you love
to save the pain of once my flame and twice my burn

chorus:

so im a shadowboxer baby
i wanna be ready for what you do
well i've been swinging around at nothing
i don't know when your gonna make your move

yeah i'm a shadowboxer baby
i wanna be ready for what you do
well i've been swinging around because
i don't know where you'll make your move
