Every Single Night
by Fiona Apple



Every single night
I endure the flight
Of little wings of white-flamed
Butterflies in my brain
These ideas of mine
Percolate the mind
Trickle down the spine
Swarm the belly, Swellin' to a blaze

That's where the pain comes in
Like a second skeleton
Tryin' to fit beneath the skin
I can't fit the feelings in, oh
Every single night's alight
with my brain

What'd I say to her, Why'd I say it to her?
What does she think of me?
That I'm not what I ought to be
And what I turn out to be's got to be somebody else's fault
I can't get caught

If what I am is what I am
Cause I does what I does
Then brother get back, cause my breast's gonna bust open
The rib is the shell
And a heart is the yolk
And I just made a meal for us both to choke on
Every single night it's a fight
With my brain
I just wanna feel everything
I just wanna feel everything
I just wanna feel everything

So I'm gonna try to be still now
Gonna renounce the mill little while
And, if we had a double, king-sized bed
We could move in and I'd soon forget
That what I am is what I am
Cause I does what I does
And maybe I'd relax
Let my breast just bust open
My heart's made of parts
Of all that's around me
And that's why the devil just can't get around me
Every single night's alright
Every single night's a fight
And every single fight's alright
With my brain

I just wanna feel everything
I just wanna feel everything
I just wanna feel everything
I just wanna feel everything
