Lyrics

I got so excited when I saw you for the first time
you were fresh and inviting perfectly enticing yeah
in the most distinctive hue of crisp white linen kissed with blue
all polished and sophisticated the finest specimen

oh oh where had you been
I'd searched between the leaves to no avail
I'd sat beneath the trees hoping the sky would send me something so delicious

like apples and onions like whisky and wine
some are just born beautiful and some need time to
find out what they're made of and where they belong
like apples and onions

you won't recognize me when you see what I've become
from scrappy little fisherman to juicy little plum
from knotted hair and bruised up knees to lips so sweet they'd make the bees
swarm around with jealousy you never saw this side of me

oh what lies beneath
is not always as simple as it seems

like apples and onions like whisky and wine
some are just born beautiful and some need time
to find out what they're made of and where they belong
like apples and onions

what starts off intoxicating, shiny and exhilarating
after a while It gets a little bit tired and

what at first seems dry and rough
with skin so thick and shell so tough
you work so hard to get inside
and then you find something so delicious
