Now playing - Shadowboxer by Fiona Apple

Once my lover, now my friend.
What a cruel thing to pretend.
What a cunning way to condescend.
Once my lover, now my friend.

Oh, you creep up like the clouds.
And you set my soul at ease.
Then you let your love abound.
And you bring me to my knees.

Oh, its evil, babe,
The way you let your grace enrapture me.
When, well, you know, I'd be insane -
To ever let that dirty game recapture me.

You made me a shadowboxer, baby.
I wanna be ready for what you do.
I been swinging all around me.
'Cause I dont know when you're gonna make your move.

Oh, your gaze is dangerous.
And you fill your space so sweet.
If I let you get too close,
You'll set your spell on me.

So, darlin', I just wanna say.
Just in case I don't come through.
I was on to every play.
I just wanted you.

But, oh, it's so evil, my love,
The way you've no reverence for my concern.
So, I'll be sure to stay wary of you, love,
To save the pain of once my flame and twice my burn.

You made me a shadowboxer, baby.
I wanna be ready for what you do.
I been swinging all around at nothin'
I dont know when you're gonna make your move.

-Fiona Apple

These lyrics are, unfortunately, exactly what I needed to find just now.

And, unrelated to the above, congratulations on you and your former sweetheart rediscovering each other.
