Basket Case

Album: Kaleidoscope Heart (2010)
  • One, two, three, four

    I don't want to talk about it to you
    I'm not an open book that you can rifle through
    The cold hard truth that you'll see right to
    I'm just a basket case without you

    He's not a magic man or a perfect fit
    But had a steady hand and I got used to it
    And a glass cage heart and invited me in
    And now I'm just a basket case without him

    You're begging for the truth
    So I'm saying it to you
    I've been saving your place
    And what good does it do?
    Now I'm just a basket case
    Now I'm just a basket case

    I don't say much and it'll stay that way
    You got a steel train touch and I'm just a track you lay
    So I'll stay right here underneath you
    I'm just a basket case and that what we do

    You're begging for the truth
    So I'm saying it to you
    I've been saving your place
    And what good does it do?
    Now I'm just a basket case

    Won't somebody come on in and tug at my seams?
    Oh, send your armies in of robbers and thieves
    To steal the state I'm in, I don't want it anymore

    You're begging for the truth
    So I'm saying it to you
    I've been saving your place
    And what good does it do?
    Now I'm just a basket case
    Now I'm just a basket case
    Now I'm just a basket case
    Now I'm just a basket case Writer/s: SARA BAREILLES
