Ingrid Michaelson Locked Up Lyrics

I have taken a wrong turn?

When will I learn? When will I learn?

Shall I show them all my scars?

Cherry red bleeding burn

Like an angry apple tree

I throw my apples if you get to close to me

But if I look to my right

Will I see the one I fight for?

If I look to my right or if I turn to my left

Will I see that I’ve kept my heart locked up?

Locked up so tight

Love, love, love, love is everywhere

But not a drop for me to drink

Tie me up and bind my feet

Drop me in and watch me sink

Like an angry apple tree

I throw my apples if you get to close to me

But if I look to my right

Will I see the one I fight for?

If I look to my right or if I turn to my left

Will I see that I’ve kept my heart locked up?

Locked up

If I was 17 I could find it in between

The cushions of somebody’s couch

I could find it, I could find it

If I was 17 I could find it in a dream

A dime a dozen kind of love

I could find it I could find it

But I’m not 17

And I lost it in between the birthday cakes

And past mistakes that roll on by

But if I look to my right

Will I see the one I fight for?

If I look to my right or If I turn to my left

Will I see that I’ve kept my heart locked up?

Locked up so tight
