I Want You To Love Me
by Fiona Apple

I've waited many years
Every print I left upon the track
Has led me here
And next year it'll be clear
This was only leading me to that
And by that time
I hope that

Love me
Love me

I move with the trees
In the breeze
I know that time is elastic
And I know when I go
All my particles disband and disperse
And I'll be back in the pulse
And I know none of this'll matter
In the long run
But I know a sound is still a sound
Around no-one
And while I'm in this body
I want somebody to want
And I want what I want
And I want

To love me

And I know that you do
In the dark
I know that you do
And I know that you know
That you got the protector to pick me up
And I want you to use it
Blast the music
Bang it, bite it, bruise it
Whenever you want to begin, begin
We don't have to go back to where we been
I am the woman who wants you to win
And I've been waiting
Waiting for

To love me

Kimberly K LOL! I was searching for this comment. Yes tori!!

Elijah Franklin

I'm sorry, but Tori Amos invented piano. It doesn't take away from Fionna Apple. Just saying.

Kimberly K

Tori Amos IS the piano inventor, but Fiona is a close 2nd because I love her and she appreciates it! ❣🎹

“And I know none of this will matter in the long run
But I know a sound is still a sound around no one. “
I’ve been toiling back and forth with my importance in this world and just the overall human experience (why am I here? Why should I get up today?) and when I heard this line I flipped out. That’s exactly it. It doesn’t matter but it happened! even if nobody sees, it happened. It’s always happening.

@Emerald kat As a very strong atheist, I agree with everything you just said, and this line is my favourite, and gives me chills over my entire body, which is the closest thing to a spiritual experience I can conjure up.

As an atheist, it's just finding what is so important to you alone. It doesn't matter any other time or to anyone else, that's why you make it yourself. Some people can't handle this and turn to religion for answers, but to quote one of my favorite atheists ever:
"If you need a purpose-driven life, you are an actor in someone else's play. You are following a script and it's not even a good one. If your life only has meaning when directed in someone else's movie, you have no life of your own."
