  • Those boon times went bust
    My feet of clay, they dried to dust
    The red isn't the red we painted
    It's just rust
    And that signature thing
    That used to bring a following
    I have trouble now
    Even remembering

    So why did I kiss him so hard
    Late last Friday night
    And keep on letting him change all my plans
    I'm either so sick in the head
    I need to be bled dry to quit
    Or I just really used to love him
    I sure hope that's it

    I knew that to keep in touch
    Would do me deep in dutch
    'Cause it isn't the rush of remembering
    It's just mush
    And that signature thing
    Is only growing harrowing
    I should have no trouble now
    To keep from following

    So why did I kiss him so hard
    Late last Friday night
    And keep on letting him change all my plans
    I'm either so sick in the head
    I need to be bled dry to quit
    Or I just really used to love him
    I sure hope that's it

    Those boon times went bust
    My feet of clay, they dried to dust
    The red isn't the red we painted
    It's just rust
    And that signature thing
    That used to bring a following
    I have trouble now
    Even remembering

    So why did I kiss him so hard
    Late last Friday night
    And keep on letting him change all my plans
    I'm either so sick in the head
    I need to be bled dry, to quit
    Or I just really used to love him
    Or I just really used to love him
    Or I just really used to love him
    I sure hope that's it Writer/s: FIONA APPLE MAGGART
