Fiona Apple Tymps

Those boon times went bust

My feet of clay, they dried to dust

The red isn’t the red we painted

Its just rust

And the signature thing

That used to bring a following

I have trouble now

Even remembering

So why did I kiss him so hard

Late last Friday night

And keep on letting him change all my plans

I’m either so sick in the head

I need to be bled dry, to quit

Or I just really used to love him

I sure hope thats it

I knew that to keep in touch

Would do me deep in dutch

Cuz it isn’t the rush of remembering

Its just mush

And the signature thing

Is only growing harrowing

I should have no trouble now

To keep from following

So why did I kiss him so hard

Late last Friday night

And keep on letting him change all my plans

I’m either so sick in the head

I need to be bled dry, to quit

Or I just really used to love him

I sure hope thats it

Those boon times went bust

Or I just really used to love him

I sure hope that’s it

Fiona Apple Love Ridden

Love ridden, I’ve looked at you

With the focus I gave to my birthday candles

I’ve wished on the lidded blue flames

Under your brow

And baby, I wished for you

Nobody sees when you are lying in your bed

And I wanna crawl in with you

But I cry instead

I want your warm, but it will only make

Me colder when it’s over,

So I can’t tonight, baby

No, not “baby” anymore – if I need you

I’ll just use your simple name

Only kisses on the cheek from now on

And in a little while, we’ll only have to wave

My hand won’t hold you down no more

The path is clear to follow through

I stood too long in the way of the door

And now I’m giving up on you

No, not “baby” anymore- if I need you

I’ll just use your simple name

Only kisses on the cheek from now on

And in a little while, we’ll only have to wave

No, not “baby” anymore- if I need you

I’ll just use your simple name

Only kisses on the cheek from now on

And in a little while, we’ll only have to wave

Fiona Apple Criminal

I’ve been a bad bad girl

I’ve been careless

With a delicate man

And it’s a sad sad world

When a girl will break a boy

Just because she can

Don’t you tell me to deny it

I’ve done wrong and

I want to

Suffer for my sins

I’ve come to you

‘Cause I need

Guidance to be true

And I just don’t know

Where I can begin

What I need is

A good defense

‘Cause I’m feelin’

Like a criminal

And I need

To be redeemed

To the one

I’ve sinned against

Because he’s all

I ever knew of love

Heaven help me

For the way I am

Save me from

These evil deeds

Before I get them done

I know tomorrow brings

The consequence at hand

But I keep livin’ this day like

The next will never come

Oh help me but

Don’t tell me to deny it

I’ve got to cleanse myself

Of all these lies till

I’m good enough for him

I’ve got a lot to lose

And I’m bettin’ high

So I’m beggin’ you

Before it ends

Just tell me where to begin

What I need

Is a good defense

‘Cause I’m feelin’

Like a criminal

And I need

To be redeemed

To the one

I’ve sinned against

Because he’s all

I ever knew of love

Let me know the way

Before there’s hell to pay

Give me room to lay

The law and let me go

I’ve got to make a play

To make my lover stay

So what would an angel say

The devil wants to know

What I need

Is a good defense

‘Cause I’m feelin’

Like a criminal

And I need

To be redeemed

To the one

I’ve sinned against

Because he’s all

I ever knew of love

What I need is

A good defense

‘Cause I’m feelin’

Like a criminal

And I need

To be redeemed

To the one

I’ve sinned against

Because he’s all

I ever knew of love

Fiona Apple Sullen Girl

Days like this

I don’t know what

To do with myself

All day and all night

I wander the halls

Along the walls and

Under my breath

I say to myself

I need fuel

To take flight

And there’s too

Much going on

But it’s calm under

The waves

In the blue of my oblivion

Under the waves in

The blue of my oblivion

Is that why they call me

A sullen girl, sullen girl

They don’t know

I used to sail the

Deep and tranquil sea

But he washed me shore

And he took my pearl

And left an empty

Shell of me

And there’s too

Much going on

But it’s calm under the waves

In the blue of my oblivion

Under the waves

In the blue of my oblivion

Under the waves

In the blue of my oblivion

It’s calm under the waves

In the blue of my oblivion

Fiona Apple Anything We Want

My cheeks were reflecting the longest wavelength

My fan was folded up and grazing my forehead

And I kept touching my neck

To guide your eye to where I wanted you to kiss me when we find some time alone.

My scars were reflecting the mist in your headlights

I looked like a neon zebra shaking rain off her stripes

And the rivulets had you riveted to the places that I wanted you to kiss me when we find some time alone

And then we can do anything we want

And then we can do anything we want

And then we can do anything we want

We started out sipping the water

And now we try to swallow the wave

And we try not to let those bastards get us down

We don’t worry anymore cause we know when the guff comes we get brave

After all, look around

It’s happening, it’s happening, it’s happening now

Let’s pretend we’re eight years old playing hookey

I’ll draw on the wall and you can play UFC rookie

Then we’ll grow up

Take our clothes off

And you remind me that I wanted you to kiss me when we find some time alone

And then we can do anything we want

And then we can do anything we want

And then we can do anything we want

And then we can do anything we want

Fiona Apple A Mistake

I’m gonna make a mistake

I’m gonna do it on purpose

I’m gonna waste my time

‘Cause I’m full as a tick

And I’m scratching at the surface

And what I find is mine

And when the day is done, and I look back

And the fact is I had fun, fumbling around

All the advice I shunned, and I ran

Where they told me not to run, but I sure

Had fun, so

I’m gonna f*** it up again

I’m gonna do another detour

Unpave my path

And if you wanna make sense

What you looking at me for

I’m no good at math

And when I find my way back,

The fact is I just may stay, or I may not

I’ve acquired quite a taste

For a well-made mistake

I wanna mistake why can’t I make a mistake?

I’m always doing what I think I should

Almost always doing everybody good

Why

Do I wanna do right, of course but

Do I really wanna feel I’m forced to

Answer you, hell no

I’ve acquired quite a taste

For a well-made mistake, I wanna

Make a mistake, why can’t I make a mistake

I’m always doing what I think I should

Almost always doing everybody good

Why

Fiona Apple The First Taste

I lie in an early bed thinking late thoughts

Waiting for the black to replace my blue

I do not struggle in your web

Because it was my aim to get caught

But daddy long legs

I feel that I’m finally growing weary

Of waiting to be consumed by you

Give me the first taste

Let it begin

Heaven cannot wait forever

Darling, just start the chase

I’ll let you win

But you must make the endeavour

Oh, your love gives me a heart contusion

Adagio breezes fill my skin with sudden red

Your hungry flirt borders intrusion

I’m building memories on things we have not said

Full is not heavy as empty

Not nearly my love

Not nearly my love

Not nearly

Give me the first taste

Let it begin

Heaven cannot wait forever

Darling, just start the chase

I’ll let you win

But you must make the endeavour

Fiona Apple Largo

I was recently rid of a man again,

So I caught me a cab to see Flanagan.

I told the cabbie ‘To the alley in back’

I told myself coming would keep me intact

Flanny shouts from the second floor

as I crossed the lot to the kitchen door

I see Guillermo and give him some lip

and I cross to the bar, Ellen pours me a nip

and I look to the stage it’s the rock of rage, as Jon is on.

and how could I listen without wanting to be with them,

and how could I have thought that I was ever alone?

I feel like singing and drinking and stuff

and I don’t wanna care if I stumble or cry

Handle me like family and that’ll be enough,

to keep me from dying when I want to die.

When over the rainbow’s too far

go to Lar-go to Lar-go to Largo

When over the rainbow’s too far

go to Lar-go to Lar-go to Largo

I’m hopping scotches with Loretta and Bob,

but, but barely containing my rapturous song

Jon’s calling names here like Santas reindeer

on Palmer on Leisz on Sarah on Sean.

I love watching the Watkins when there rocking with Garza

I want to be part of the band though

and when Mr. Tench is on the bench I want to be the piano.

I feel like singing and drinking and stuff

and I don’t wanna care if I stumble or cry

Handle me like family and that’ll be enough,

to keep me from dying when I want to die.

When over the rainbow’s too far

go to Lar-go to Lar-go to Largo

When over the rainbow’s too far

go to Lar-go to Lar-go to Largo

Fiona Apple Get Him Back

One man, he disappoint me

He give me the gouge and he take my glee

Now every other man I see

Remind me of the one man who disappoint me

But wait till I get him back

He won’t have a back to scratch

Yeah, keep turning that chin

And you will see my

Face as I figure how to kill what I cannot catch

So I say, and on I go

To another one to disappoint me so

Next one up, a contemptible snob

He live to put things in their place

He did a commendable job

He put himself so low

He can hardly even look me in the face

O, he made my blood just burn

I flipped so far, I thought that I would not return

But the last one I had who was getting my hopes up

I might’ve been a little fast to dismiss

I think he let me down, when he didn’t disappoint me

He didn’t always guess right, but he usually got my gist

So wait till I get him back

I’m gonna bring him home and I’ll watch him unpack

Yeah keep turning that chin

And you will see my face is fixed on the one

I’m gonna get back

I’m gonna get him back

I am

I’m gonna get him back

I really am

Fiona Apple Waltz

If you don’t have a song

To sing you’re okay

You know how to get along

Humming

Hmmm

If you don’t have a date

Celebrate

Go out and sit on the lawn

And do nothing

‘Cause it’s just what you must do

Nobody does it anymore

No I don’t believe in the wasting of time,

But I don’t believe that I’m wasting mine

If you don’t have a point to make

Don’t sweat it

You’ll make a sharp one being so kind

And I’d sure appreciate it

Everyone else’s goal’s to get big headed

Why should I follow that beat being that I’m

Better than fine
