Fiona Apple – Fast As You Can lyrics

I let beast in too soon,
I don't know how to live
Without my hands on his throat;
I fight him always and still
O darling, it's 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

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
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 was
And I'll be your girl,
If you say it's a gift
And you give me some more or your drugs
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'll fight again, again, again, again, again
And for a little while more
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
Fast as you can
Fast as you can
Fast as you can
