Music Monday – Fiona Apple – O’ Sailor

MUSICMONDAYS

Rules of Music Mondays: Every Monday share a few songs you’ve been enjoying lately.  It doesn’t have to be a specific genre, new, or one of your favorites – just something you’d like to share with others.  If possible, share a music or lyric video of the song and your thoughts on the song(s), artist(s), and/or music video(s).

This week I’m going back to my pre-adulthood…again. Not that I ever do that. I love me some Fiona Apple. Who doesn’t stop to listen when the classic Criminal comes on the radio? This, O’Sailor, is my favorite Fiona Apple song.

Fiona Apple – O’Sailor

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, 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

And 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
