Shameika by Fiona Apple Lyrics

I used to walk down the streets
On my way to school
Grinding my teeth to a rhythm invisible
I used my feet to crush dead leaves like they had fallen from trees
Just for me, just to be crashed cymbals

In class, I passed the time
Drawing a slash for every time
The second hand went by a group of five
Done twelve times was a minute

But Shameika said I had potential
Shameika said I had potential
Shameika said I had potential
Shameika said I had potential

I used to march down the windy, windy sidewalk
Slapping my leg with the riding crop
Thinking it made me come off so tough
I didn't smile, because a smile always seemed rehearsed
I wasn't afraid of the bullies, and that just made the bullies worse

In class, I passed the time
Drawing a slash for every time
The second hand went by a group of five
Done twelve times was a minute

But Shameika said I had potential
Shameika said I had potential
Shameika said I had potential
Shameika said I had potential

Hurricane Gloria in excelsis deo
That's my burden, my dream
My dog, and my man, and my music is my holy trinity
Hurricane Gloria in excelsis deo
That's my burden, my dream
My dog, and my man, and my music is my holy trinity

Tony told me he described me as pissed off, funny and warm
Sebastian said I'm a good man in a storm
Back then I didn't know what potential meant
And Shameika wasn't gentle and she wasn't my friend but
She got through to me and I'll never see her again
She got through to me and I'll never see her again
I'm pissed off, funny and warm
I'm a good man in a storm
And when the fall is torrential, I'll recall

Shameika said I had potential
Shameika said I had potential
Shameika said I had potential
Shameika said I had potential

Tony told me he described me as pissed off, funny and warm
Sebastian said I'm a good man in a storm
Back then I didn't know what potential meant
But Shameika wasn't gentle and she wasn't my friend
But she got through to me and I'll never see her again
She got through to me and I'll never see her again
I'm pissed off, funny and warm
I'm a good man in a storm
And when the fall is torrential, I'll recall

Shameika is written by Fiona Apple and is produced by Fiona Apple, Amy Aileen Wood.

On this song Apple portrays her center school self as hesitantly sure, not yielding to menaces in her local Harlem. While this wasn't a successful system at forestalling tormenting, she stayed reserved and discovered music in her regular day to day existence (walking, slapping her leg, pounding her teeth, and smashing leaves like slammed cymbals).
