Every Single Night
Fiona Apple Lyrics


Every single night
I endure the flight
Of little wings of white flame
Butterflies in my brain
These ideas of mine
Percolate the mind
Trickle down my spine
Swarm the belly, swelling to a blaze
That's where the pain comes in
Like a second skeleton
Trying to fit beneath the skin
I can't fit the feelings in, no
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
That I'm what I try not to be
It'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 the heart is the yolk and
I just made a meal for us both to choke on
Every single night's a fight with my brain

I just want to feel everything
I just want to feel everything
I just want to feel everything

So I'm gonna try to be still now
Gonna renounce the mill a little while and
If we had a double king-sized bed
We could move in it 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 surround 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 want to feel everything
I just want to feel everything
I just want to feel everything
I just want to feel everything

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, swelling to a blaze
That's where the pain comes in
Like a second skeleton
Trying to fit beneath the skin
I can't fit the feelings in
Every single night's alight with my brain
What'd I say to her?
Why'd I say to her?
What does she think of me?
That I'm not what I ought to be
That I'm what I try not to be
It'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 the heart is the yolk
I just made a meal for us both to choke on
Every single night's a fight with my brain
I just want to feel everything
I just want to feel everything
I just want to feel everything
So I'm gonna try to be still now
Gonna renounce the mill a little while and
If we had a double-king-sized bed
We could move in it 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 surround 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 want to feel everything
I just want to feel everything
I just want to feel everything
I just want to feel everything

I F

The calmness inher artistry
Despite the fact that she knows
even as an amazing artist is
constant panic on being not
enough in every tangible
medium- really keeps me going.

There's this childlike sense of
wonder captured here in this
video (the squids dead and giant)
are ultimately representative of
how artists feel like we're killing
art as we execute, but as she
crosses the bridge the multiple
legged creature is is unttainable.

Wanting to be everything.
But not possible.
The constant haunt of
lackng.

Then...to layer it deeper...
She belt outs about her
knowing this is a chemical
Infrequency that also simultaneously
gives her talent.

Constant frustration.

Seeking solitude in a large bed.

But reconciling it's futitle in the effort.

I wish i could meet her.

Xx- Bella.

Lyrics

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, 
Swelling to a blaze

That's where the pain comes in
Like a second skeleton
Trying to fit beneath the skin
I can't fit the feelin's in, 
Oh

Every single night's alight
With my brain, 
Brain

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
That I'm what 
I try not to be
It'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's a fight
With my brain, 
Brain

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

So now I'm gonna try 
To be still now
Gonna renounce the 
Mill a little while
And if we had a 
Double-king-sized bed
We could move in it 
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 surround 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, 
Brain

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

complete magic

Atlus Avalon

She always has been. I remember seeing her first album tour in vegas when I was in high school in Vegas and it was pure magic. Like seeing Tori or PJ Harvey or Bjork for the first time. She's a true legend despite being 'indie' to most folks in the industry.

When you deeply hurt a brilliant child, a deeply beautiful soul, a complex being, this is what you get. She is beautiful beyond any time, and her pain is our substance, but she didn't deserve it, and I have loved her since I was 11 years old, when I first heard her voice, when she told me the world is bullshit. She is the only one of her kind.

Well said

@MaryANytowl I am a survivor of incest, so I personally know the break in personality and maturity development this kind of deep trauma can inflict. Even still now, in my 60’s!
We really need All Men to stand up against All Forms of Violence, and Abuse, or it will take eons for them to change!
