Fiona AppleNever Is A Promise

You'll never see The courage I know Its colors' richness Won't appear within your view I'll never glow, The way that you glow Your presence dominates the judgments made on you But as the scenery grows, I see in different lights The shades and shadows Undulate in my perception My feelings swell and stretch I see from greater heights I understand what I am still to proud to mention -to you You'll say you understand But you don't understand You'll say you'd never give up Seeing eye to eye But never is a promise And you can't afford to lie You'll never touch These things that I hold The skin of my emotions Lies beneath my own You'll never feel The heat of this soul My fever burns me deeper than I've ever shown To you You'll say don't fear your dreams It's easier than it seems You'll say you'd never let me fall From hopes so high But never is a promise And you can't afford to lie You'll never live the life that I live I'll never live the life That wakes me in the night You'll never hear the message I give You'll say it looks as though I might Give up this fight But as the scenery grows, I see in different lights The shades and shadows Undulate in my perception My feelings swell and stretch I see from greater heights I realize what I am now too smart to mention To you You'll say you understand, You'll never understand I'll say I'll never wake up Knowing how or why I don't know what to believe in You don't know who I am You'll say I need appeasing When I start to cry But never is a promise And I'll never need a lie
