"Red Red Red" lyrics - FIONA APPLE

"Red Red Red"

I don't understand about complementary colors
And what they say
Side by side they both get bright together
They both get gray

[Chorus 1:]
But he's been pretty much yellow
And I've been kind of blue
But all I can see is
Red, red, red, red, red
Now, what am I gonna do?

I don't understand about diamonds
And why men buy them
What's so impressive about a diamond
Except the mining?

[Chorus 2:]
But it's dangerous work
Trying to get to you, too
And I think if I didn't have to kill
Kill, kill, kill, kill myself doing it
Maybe I wouldn't think so much of you

I've been watching all the time
And I still can't find the tack
But I wanna know is, is it okay?
Is it just fine?
Or is it my fault?
Is it my lack?

I don't understand about
The weather outside
Or the harmony in a tune
Or why somebody lied

[Chorus 3:]
But there's solace a bit in submitting
To the fitfully, cryptically true
What's happened, has happened
What's coming is already on its way
With a role for me to play

And I don't understand
I never understand
But I'll try to understand
There's nothing else I can do
