Regina Spektor – Baobabs lyrics

You have tamed me
Now you must take me
How am I supposed to be
I don't have my thorns now
But I feel them sprouting
They'll grow right through if I don't watch them
They'll grow right through even if I watch them
And a sunset couldn't save me now
These baobabs, and baobabs, and baobabs some more
But you can't outweight fate
You have tamed me
Now you must take me
T-t-ta-t-t-ta-t-t-ta-tt-ta-t-t-ta-tt-ta-t-t-ta-t-t-ta
And I wouldn't raise my child inside the city anyway
They grow up too savvy
And they grow up too fast
And they know about buying shit
And they know about sex
And they know about investment banking
And also about brokerage burns
And they know about the numbers
And they know about the words
And they know about the bottom lines
And also about stones
And they know about careers
And about the real deals
And they all grow up and become people's people with people skills
But you have tamed me
Now you must take me
How am I supposed to be
I don't have my thorns now
You have tamed me
Now you must take me
How am I supposed to be
I don't have my tho-or-or-or-orns
