Cellophane
FKA twigs Lyrics


Didn't I do it for you?
Why don't I do it for you?
Why won't you do it for me?
When all I do is for you?

They want to see us, want to see us alone
They want to see us, want to see us apart
They want to see us, want to see us alone
They want to see us, want to see us apart

And I, just want to feel you're there
And I don't want to have to share our love
I try, but I get overwhelmed
When you're gone I have no one to tell
And I, just want to feel you're there
And I don't want to have to share our love
I try but I get overwhelmed
All wrapped in cellophane, the feelings that we had

And didn't I do it for you?
Why don't I do it for you?
Why won't you do it for me?
When all I do is for you?
And didn't I do it for you?
Why won't I do it for you?
Why won't you do it for me?
When all I do is for you?

But I, just want to feel you're there
And I don't want to have to share our love
I try but I get overwhelmed
When you're gone, I have no one to tell

They're waiting
They're watching
They're watching us
They're hating
They're waiting
And hoping
I'm not enough

Didn't I do it for you?
Why don't I do it for you?
Why won't you do it for me?
When all I do is for you?
They want to see us, want to see us alone
They want to see us, want to see us apart
They want to see us, want to see us alone
They want to see us, want to see us apart
And I, just want to feel you're there
And I don't want to have to share our love
I try, but I get overwhelmed
When you're gone I have no one to tell
And I, just want to feel you're there
And I don't want to have to share our love
I try but I get overwhelmed
All wrapped in cellophane, the feelings that we had
And didn't I do it for you?
Why don't I do it for you?
Why won't you do it for me?
When all I do is for you?
And didn't I do it for you?
Why won't I do it for you?
Why won't you do it for me?
When all I do is for you?
But I, just want to feel you're there
And I don't want to have to share our love
I try but I get overwhelmed
When you're gone, I have no one to tell
They're waiting
They're watching
They're watching us
They're hating
They're waiting
And hoping
I'm not enough

It’s The Fluorescents

This feels like a dagger to the heart because the story behind this whole album is so sad. She really loved Rob but everyone was so against them being together. His family wanted him to be with a conservative posh woman saying how they didn’t like twigs’ raunchy persona, his friends called her a “gold digger”, his fans were horrible to her and the constant bad vibes getting into something so personal can really ruin it. I feel so sad for her, she didn’t deserve this:/

Nicole

It’s funny because twigs isn’t really raunchy in a sense she’s sensual but done in a very feminine manner how actress like Monica Belluci is, singer Lana del rey even dita von teese. It’s very tastefully done in a womanly way without it being shanky. But honestly I understand the song very much it’s painful I had a boyfriend I was head over heels with and in love but he ultimately was a mommy’s boy. despite being a grown man and he went along with his mother’s decisions instead thinking for himself fully and when she said I had to go, I had to go he felt it’s one of the most hurtful and right to your heart situations I hope I’ll never have to endure again

@Robert Pattinson 🌟 seriously!!! Than u shouldnt have purposed!!!!!!!!!!

Danielle Sandoval

I agree 100000%. Rob should have gotten some balls and told friends family to F off! He proposed, they were engaged and than he ends it!!!? I've lost all respect 4 him! Seems as though he's still hung up on KS,,I DONT KNOW WHY!!!??? HE didn't purpose to KS etc only Twiggs! Mirror Heart is AMAZING, she nailed it , what saddens me when she live she's crying. I hope Rob sees and hears that song. This Suki character....eeh..Bradley Cooper said it best,,,she's HUNGRY!

I’m an addict and when i got sober this is one of the songs that kept me sober. It feels like a goodbye letter to my alcoholism, especially the part: “when you’re gone i have no one to tell” because i hid my drinking so well that when i got sober it was something nobody but me noticed. Thank you FKA for inspiring us in more ways than you may know

'why won't you do it for me - when all I do is for you'

Pamela Voss

I'm so glad I seen your comment .!!! I'm so happy for you Sarah. My story is VERY similar. Its been bittersweet and I'm a very private person so I have no one to really talk to about it. This song means alot to me. But in these circumstances it just hit different. Like I have goosebumps. Along w/some tears that was unexpected. Then your comment!!!!! I can't explain the comfort i found in it ....

Becky C

that’s beautiful! I’m proud of you

Candy Cane

Keep up the hard work !!!
