  • I could liken you to a werewolf
    The way you left me for dead
    But I admit that I provided a full moon

    And I could liken you to a shark
    The way you bit off my head
    But then again I was waving around a bleeding open wound

    But you were such a super guy
    'Til the second you get away from me
    We're like a wishing well
    And a bolt of electricity
    But we could still support each other
    All we gotta do is avoid each other
    Nothing wrong when a song ends in the minor key
    Nothing wrong when a song ends in the minor key

    The lava of a volcano
    Shot up hot from under the sea
    One thing leads to another
    And you made an island of me

    And I could liken you to a chemical
    The way you made me compound to compound
    But I'm a chemical too
    Inevitable you and me would mix

    And I could liken you to a lot of things
    But I always come around
    'Cause in the end I'm a sensible girl
    I know the fiction of the fix

    But you were such a super guy
    'Til the second you get away from me
    We're like a wishing well
    And a bolt of electricity
    But we could still support each other
    All we gotta do is avoid each other
    Nothing wrong when a song ends in the minor key
    Nothing wrong when a song ends in the minor key Writer/s: Fiona Apple Maggart
