"Sleep To Dream" Lyrics

Fiona Apple

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

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

ooo oooo oooooo ooo
