"I may be so sick in the head
I need to be bled dry to quit,
Or I just really used to love him;
I sure hope that’s it."

I was screaming
into the canyon
at the moment of my death
the echo I created
outlasted my last breath

My voice it made an avalanche
and buried a man I never knew
and when he died
his widowed bride
met your daddy and they made you

I have only one thing to do
and that’s
be the wave that I am and then
sink back into the ocean
sink back into the o
sink back into the ocean
sink back into the o
sink back into the ocean
sink back into the ocean

Interviewer:   You said in an interview years ago: “Everything that happens to me, I experience it really intensely. I feel it very deeply.” You’ve spoken a lot about honoring a spectrum of feelings. Do you still feel that way or have you hardened at all?

Fiona Apple:   "I have gone back and forth and I have saved myself from the hardening. There is a song on the "The Idler Wheel…." ‘Left Alone’, where I say, "I don’t cry when I’m sad anymore." There was a period of time when I was not feeling things. It was terrible. Sometimes it’s good to grow a tough hide— for press stuff, maybe. But when I hear people say that they won’t get a dog because they had one when they were a kid and it died, or that they don’t want to fall in love because it hurts too much, I’m like, "fuck you.". I really believe in completely being naive and having high hopes when meeting someone new. I can kind of re-do my stupidity or my naivete. It pisses me off to think that we’re conditioned to push away bad feelings and to think that anything that’s uncomfortable is something to be avoided. When things are really bad nowadays, I recognize the value in it because it’s me filling my quota— it’s going to make my joy more intense later."

"Fiona hadn’t thought about whether she was going to talk about her rape in public until the day a journalist in Italy asked her about the song “Sullen Girl.” He wanted to know if it was about a guy leaving her. And it is not. Its lyrics – “They don’t know I used to sail the deep and tranquil sea/But he washed me shore and he took my pearl/ And left an empty shell of me” – are in part about what happened to her. So she said so. “I thought that ultimately, no matter what happens, if I lie about this, I don’t like what that says,” she explains. From then on, interviewers would agonizingly, circuitously bring up the subject. “I’d be, ‘You want to ask about when I was raped?’” she laughs. “I was, ‘Please don’t act like I have got food in my teeth. It’s out in the open. It’s not something that I’m embarrassed about, so don’t act like it’s something that I should be embarrassed about.’”"
