Fast as You Can
by Fiona Apple



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 darlin its so sweet you think you know how crazy...how crazy I am
You say you don't spook easy
You won't go but I know
and I pray that you will

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

I may be soft in your palm
But I'll still 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 tryin to find my way
Into your heart from under your skin
Oh fast as you can baby scratch me out free yourself
Fast as you can
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
When I get to the place where I'm
Beggin for a lift
Or I'll drown in the wonders and the was
I'll be your girl if you say its a gift
And ya give me some more of your drugs
Yeah I'll be your pet if you just tell me
Its a gift
Cuz I'm tired of whys chokin on whys
Just need a little because because

I let the beast in and then I even tried forgivin him
But its too soon so I'll fight again again again again again
And for a little while more I'll soar the uneven winds
Complain and blame the sterile land
But if you're gettin any bright ideas
Quiet dear I'm bloomin within

Oh fast as you can baby wait watch me I'll be out
Fast as I can may be late but atleast about
Fast as you can leave me let this thing run its route
Fast as you can
Fast as you can
Fast as you can
Fast as you can
