It took the agenda from its place in my bed
Made a merry paramour of me

from Fiona Apple – O' Sailor Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

His rejection of their love negated its original ‘agenda’ or purpose. Instead of a life partner she felt like a lover, tossed aside, a ‘paramour’.

Paramour is also the name of the mansion used studio where Fiona and Jon Brion lived and recorded some of the initial recorded tracks for Extraordinary Machine
