Testo della canzone O' Sailor (Fiona Apple), tratta dall'album Extraordinary Machine

O' Sailor - Fiona Apple

I'm undecided about you again
Mightn't be right that you're not here
It's double-sided, 'cause I ruined it all
But also saved myself by never believing you, dear

Everything good I deem too good to be true
Everything else is just a bore
Everything I have to look forward to
Has a pretty painful and very imposing before

O' sailor, why'd you do it?
What'd you do that for?
Saying there's nothing to it
And then letting it go by the boards
O' sailor, why'd you do it?
What'd you do that for?
Saying there's nothing to it
And then letting it go by the boards

I have, too, been playing with fifty-two cards
Just 'cause I play so far from my vest
Whatever I've got, I've got no reason to guard
What could I do but spend my best?

O' sailor, why'd you do it?
What'd you do that for?
Saying there's nothing to it
And then letting it go by the boards
O' sailor, why'd you do it?
What'd you do that for?
Saying there's nothing to it
And then letting it go by the boards

And after waiting, fighting patiently on my knees
All the other stuff tired itself out first, and not me
And in its wake, appeared the touch and call
Of a different breed
One who set to get me wise, and got me there
And then, got me

Oh, what a thing, to know what could be instead
Oh, what a blessed curse; to see
It took the agenda from its place in my bed
Made a merry paramour of me

O' sailor, why'd you do it?
What'd you do that for?
Saying there's nothing to it
And then letting it go by the boards
O' sailor, why'd you do it?
What'd you do that for?
Giving me eyes to view it
As it goes by the boards

O' sailor, why'd you do it?
What'd you do that for?
Saying there's nothing to it
And then letting it go by the boards
O' sailor, why'd you do it?
What'd you do that for?
Saying there's nothing to it
And then letting it go by the boards

O' sailor, why'd you do it?
What'd you do that for?
Giving me eyes to view it
As it goes by the boards
O' sailor, why'd you do it?
What'd you do that for?
Giving me eyes to view it
As it goes by the boards
