Anything We Want

Album: The Idler Wheel... (2012)
  • My cheeks were reflecting the longest wavelength
    My fan was folded up and grazing my forehead
    And I kept touching my neck
    To guide your eye to where I wanted you to kiss me when we find some time alone

    My scars were reflecting the mist in your headlights
    I looked like a neon zebra shaking rain off her stripes
    And the rivulets had you riveted
    To the places that I wanted you to kiss me when we find some time alone

    And then we can do anything we want
    And then we can do anything we want
    And then we can do anything we want

    We started out sipping the water
    And now we try to swallow the wave
    And we try not to let those bastards get us down
    We don't worry anymore 'cause we know when the gulf comes we get brave
    After all, look around
    It's happening, it's happening, it's happenin' now

    Let's pretend we're eight years old playing hookey
    I'll draw on the wall and you can play U-F-C rookie
    Then we'll grow up
    Take our clothes off
    And you remind me that I wanted you to kiss me when we find some time alone

    And then we can do anything we want
    And then we can do anything we want
    And then we can do anything we want
    And then we can do anything we want Writer/s: Fiona Apple Maggart
