Sara Bareilles — Undertow lyrics

Silly me, look what I did again
I found what I want
Is what I cannot have
I didn't mean to be so predictable
But I blame it all on who made you irresistible

And it isn't something I need
'til you tell me I can't
Why wear my heart on my sleeve
When it looks so good in your hand

My heart breaks in a heart beat
And you storm me when you come and go
The taste of something so sweet should have
Warned me 'bout the undertow
Oh, I couldn't find a better man to let me go

Little girl, I don't know why you stay
If I had a feather for every time daddy said that I could fly away
Old habits are so hard to break
It'd be a shame to stop now that I've started to make really good mistakes
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/sara-bareilles-undertow-lyrics.html ]
And I don't know why I must ask
For the forbidden fruit
I saw the snake in the grass
But I had bitten too soon

My heart breaks in a heart beat
And you storm me when you come and go
The taste of something so sweet should have
Warned me 'bout the undertow
Oh, I couldn't find a better man to let me go

I should have seen you coming in
Should recognize the signs a wave's gonna break
Now, I've given in, why fight it when
I'm resigned to simply live in your wake
Your wake

Heart breaks in a heart beat
And you storm me when you come and go
The taste of something so sweet should have
Warned me 'bout the undertow
Oh, I couldn't find a better man to let me go
No no no no
I couldn't find a better man to let me go
