Caricature - Lyrics

Caricature
Key Eb / R&B/Rap

Verse 1:
Spent twelve hours talking of love
Another twelve on how to love him
Spent seven days being quite smooth
Then four weeks smoothing his brows

Verse 2:
Spent a quarter saying he loves me
Within twelve months same to twelve others
Will lose ten years if I don’t run
Then ten decades if I relapse

Chorus:
He’s not even a shadow
He’s not even a shadow
Just caricature 
Just caricature 

He’s not even a shadow
He’s not even a shadow
Just caricature 
Just caricature 

Rap:
When I met him 
I never knew 
He was a cartoon from the papers
Spent our meetings talking about 
How to care for him, to touch him, to love him
Just himself and his good looks 

I’d felt that
High self esteem 
And worth isn’t bad
But he kept his money, spent my money
Just to show that I care
Prove my love for him, open handed
Trying to make it work

Chose to consider him
Never knowing I was deceiving myself
And wasting my time 
Spent my absence sleezing about
Every friend of mine, anyone that cares
Super-visible, invincible 
Just out to satisfy himself

Pondering then pontificate
About the misery
And mystery in this package
Could spend my whole life 
Guilty and remorse
Weak to change anything 
Bleak, bleating to wring
Weighted against in this ring
Wishing to relive my life

Chorus:
He’s not even a shadow
He’s not even a shadow
Just caricature 
Just caricature 

He’s not even a shadow
He’s not even a shadow
Just caricature 
Just caricature 

Bridge:
Would love to spend ten centuries 
With a guy who is real
Why waste my gross with a gross
When I’ve got gross options

Would love to spend ten centuries 
With a guy who is real
Why waste my gross with a gross
When I’ve got gross options

Chorus:
He’s not even a shadow
He’s not even a shadow
Just caricature 
Just caricature 

He’s not even a shadow
He’s not even a shadow
Just caricature 
Just caricature 

Verse 3:
Spent sixty seconds on reminisce 
Finally sixty minutes to get rid of him
