Fiona Apple Periphery

Oh, the periphery

They throw good parties there

Those peripheral idiots

Always have a bite to bare

Bear it if you can

If you really want to

Go to the periphery

Have them celebrate your name

Have them forge you a pedigree and then you’ll be

Left to run the races lame

But if you want

If you think it’s worth it

Go now, with me

Cause I don’t appreciate

People who

Don’t appreciate

All that loving must’ve been lacking something

If I got bored trying to figure you out

You let me down

I don’t even like you anymore at all

Oh, the periphery

I lost another one there

He found a prettier girl than me

With a more even-tempered air

And if he wants her, he should get her

Cause I think he thinks she’s worth it

And maybe they’ll move from the periphery

By themselves, or on a plot of land

And I’ll care in a different capacity, I’ll just be

Hoping he makes a good family man

And if he finds himself yearning

For his throne on the silly side

Nothing wrong as long as he’s learning

Besides, you can take it up with his brethren

Or with his bride, just not with me

Cause I don’t appreciate

People who

Don’t appreciate

All that loving must’ve been lacking something

If I got bored trying to figure you out

You let me down

I don’t even like you anymore at all

Oh, the periphery

Oh, the periphery

Oh, the periphery

Oh, the periphery

Stay away

Stay away

Away, away

Stay away, away

Fiona Apple I Can’t Wait To Meet You

“Gabriella, mamy love you

I cannot wait to meet you

I’m so happy to have you in my life”

I can’t wait to meet you for the first time

I don’t know what I’ll do that day

I’ll cry and I’ll laugh and I’ll kiss you

I will have you, you will have me

The world will be different and new

The world will be different and new

I hope you can do more things than I have

I hope you can follow your dreams

I will have you, you will have me

The world will be different and new

The world will be different and new

Fiona Apple Werewolf

I could liken you to a werewolf

The way you left me for dead

But I admit that I provided a full moon

And I could liken you to a shark

The way you bit off my head

But then again I was waving around a bleeding open wound

But you were such a super guy

‘Til the second you get a whiff of me

We’re like a wishing well

And a bolt of electricity

But we can still support each other

All we gotta do is avoid each other

Nothing wrong when a song ends in a minor key

Nothing wrong when a song ends in a minor key

The lava of a volcano

Shot up hot from under the sea

One thing leads to another

And you made an island of me

And I could liken you to a chemical

The way you made me compound to compound

But I’m a chemical too

Inevitable you and me would mix

And I could liken you to a lot of things

But I always come around

‘Cause in the end I’m a sensible girl

I know the fiction of the fix

But you were such a super guy

‘Til the second you get a whiff of me

We’re like a wishing well

And a bolt of electricity

But we can still support each other

All we gotta do is avoid each other

Nothing wrong when a song ends in a minor key

Nothing wrong when a song ends in a minor key

Fiona Apple Window

I was staring out the window

The whole time he was talking to me

It was a filthy pane of glass

I couldn’t get a clear view

And as he went on and on

It wasn’t the outside world I could see

Just the filthy pane that I was looking through

So I had to break the window

It just had to be

Better that I break the window

Than him or her or me

I was never focused on just one thing

My eyes got fixed when my mind got soft

It may look like I’m concentrated on

A very clear view

But I’m as good as asleep

I bet you didn’t know

It takes a lot of it away

If you do

I had to break the window

It just had to be

Better that I break the window

Than him or her or me

I had to break the window

It just had to be

It was in my way

Better that I break the window

Than forget what I had to say

Or miss what I should see

Because the fact being that

Whatever’s in front of me

Is covering my view

So I can’t see what I’m seeing in fact

I only see what I’m looking through

So again I done the right thing

I was never worried about that

The answer’s always been in clear view

But even when the window was cleaned

I still can’t see for the fact

That it’s so clear I can’t tell what I’m looking through

So I had to break the window

It just had to be

It was in my way

Better that I break the window

Than him or her or me

I had to break the window

It just had to be

Better that I break the window

Than miss what I should see

I had to break the window

It just had to be

It was in my way

Better that I break the window

Than forget what I had to say

Or miss what I should see

Or break him her or me

Especially me

Fiona Apple Container

I was screaming into the canyon

At the moment of my death

The echo I created

Outlasted my last breath

My voice it made an avalanche

And buried a man I never knew

And when he died his widowed bride

Met your daddy and they made you

I have only one thing to do and that’s

To be the wave that I am and then

Sink back into the ocean

I have only one thing to do and that’s

To be the wave that I am and then

Sink back into the ocean

I have only one thing to do and that’s

To be the wave that I am and then

Sink back into the ocean

Sink back into the o

Sink back into the ocean

Sink back into the o

Sink back into the ocean

Sink back into the ocean

Fiona Apple Hot Knife

If I’m butter, if I’m butter,

If I’m butter, then he’s a hot knife,

He makes my heart a cinemascope screen

Showing the dancing bird of paradise.

If I’m butter, if I’m butter,

If I’m butter, then he’s a hot knife,

He makes my heart a cinemascope screen

He excites me

Must be like a genesis of rhythm

I get feisty

Whenever I’m with him

He makes my heart a cinemascope screen

Showing the dancing bird of paradise.

Fiona Apple Carrion

Won’t do no good

To hold no seance

What’s gone is gone and

You can’t bring it back around

Won’t do no good

To hold no searchlight

You can’t illuminate

What time has anchored down

Oh, honey

(I’ve gone a)

Oh, honey

(I’ve gone a)

Oh, honey

(I’ve gone away)

Won’t do no good

To sing no love song

No sound could simulate

The presence of a man

Won’t do no good

Asking no questions

Your divination should

Acquaint you with the plan

Oh, honey

(I’ve gone a)

Oh, honey

(I’ve gone a)

Oh, honey

(I’ve gone away)

My feel for you, boy

Is decaying in front of me

Like the carrion

Of a murdered pery

And all I want is

To save you, honey

You can’t intimidate me

Back into your arms

Oh, honey

(I’ve gone a)

Oh, honey

(I’ve gone a)

Oh, honey

(I’ve gone away)

My feel for you, boy

Is decaying in front of me

Like the carrion

Of a murdered prey

And all I want is

To save you, honey

Or the strength

To walk away

My feel for you, boy

Is decaying in front of me

Like the carrion

Of a murdered prey

And all I want is

To save you, honey

Or the strength

To walk away

Fiona Apple Slow Like Honey

You moved like honey

In my dream last night

Yeah, some old fires

Were burning

You came near to me

And you endeared to me

But you couldn’t

Quite discern me

Does that scare you?

I’ll let you run away

But your heart

Will not oblige you

You’ll remember me

Like a melody

Yeah, I’ll haunt the

World inside you

And my big secret

Gonna win you over

Slow like honey

Heavy with mood

I’ll let you see me

I’ll covet your regard

I’ll invade your demeanor

And you’ll yield to me

Like a scent in the breeze

And you’ll wonder

What it is about me

It’s my big secret

Keeping you coming

Slow like honey

Heavy with mood

Though dreams

Can be deceiving

Like faces are to hearts

They serve for

Sweet relieving

When fantasy and reality

Lie too far apart

So I stretch myself across

Like a bridge

And I pull you to the edge

And stand there waiting

Trying to attain

The end to satisfy the story

Shall I release you?

Must I release you?

As I rise to meet my glory

But my big secret

Gonna hover over your life

Gonna keep you reaching

When I’m gone like yesterday

When I’m high like heaven

When I’m strong like music

‘Cause I’m slow like honey, and

Heavy with mood

Fiona Apple Jonathan

Jonathan, call again

Take me to Coney Island

Take me on the train

Kiss me while I calculate

And calibrate and heaven’s sake

Don’t make me explain

Just tolerate my little fist

Tugging on your forest chest

I don’t wanna talk about

I don’t wanna talk about anything

I don’t wanna talk about

I don’t wanna talk about anything

Jonathan, anything

And anyone that you have done

Has gotta be alright with me

If she’s part of

The reason you are how you are

She’s alright with me

Just tolerate my little fist

Tugging on your forest chest

I don’t wanna talk about

I don’t wanna talk about anything

I don’t wanna talk about

I don’t wanna talk about anything

You like to captain

A capsized ship

But I like watching you live [x2]

Jonathan, call again

Take me to Coney Island

Take me on the train

Kiss me while I calculate

And calibrate and heaven’s sake

Don’t make me explain

Just tolerate my little fist

Tugging on your forest chest

I don’t wanna talk about

I don’t wanna talk about anything

I don’t wanna talk about

I don’t wanna talk about anything

Fiona Apple River, Stay Away From My Door

You keep going your way

I’ll keep going my way

River, stay away from my door

I just got a cabin

You don’t need my cabin

River, stay away from my door

Don’t come up any higher

I’m so all alone

Leave my bed and my fire

That’s all I own

I ain’t breaking your heart

Don’t go breaking my heart

River, stay away from my door

Oh lord, ain’t I been faithful

And worked damn hard in the sweat and sun

Oh lord, didn’t I pray to you

And thanked you for all you’ve done

Oh lord, you made the river

But won’t you try to remember that you made me too

Oh lord, hear me pray to you

And make the river hear my plea

I’ll keep breaking your heart

Don’t go breaking my heart

River, stay away from my door

Oh river, stay away from my door

River, stay away from my door
