Cover of Fiona Apple's "Fast as You Can".


i let the beast in too soon
i don't know how to live without my hand on his throat
i fight him always and still
oh darling it's so sweet you think you know how crazy i am
you say you don't spook easy, you won't go
but i know and i pray that you will

fast as you can baby run free yourself of me
fast as you can

i may be soft in your palm
but i'll soon grow hungry for a fight and i will not let you win
my pretty mouth will frame the phrases
that will disprove your faith in man
so if you catch me trying to find my way into your heart
from under your skin

fast as you can baby scratch me out free yourself
fast as you can

sometimes my mind don't shake and shift
but most of the time it does
and i get to the place where i'm begging for a lift
or i'll drown in the wonders and the whys
and i'll be your boy if you say it's a gift
and you give me some more of your drug
yeah, i'll be your pet if you just tell me it's a gift
cause i'm tired of whys, choking on whys
just need a little because because

i let the beast in
and then i even tried forgiving him
but it's too soon so i fight again again again
and for a little while i'll soar the uneven wind
complain and blame the sterile land
but if you're getting any bright ideas
quiet dear, i'm blooming within

fast as you can baby wait watch me i'll be out
fast as i can maybe late but at least about
fast as you can leave me let this thing run its route
fast as you can
