Better Version of Me

  • The nickel dropped when I was on
    My way beyond the rubicon
    What did I do?
    And of the games that I can handle
    None are ones worth the candle
    What should I do?

    I'm a frightened, fickle person
    Fighting, cryin', kickin', cursin'
    What should I do?

    Oooh, after all the folderol
    And hauling over coals stops
    What will I do?

    Can't take a good day without a bad one
    Don't feel just to smile until I've had one
    Where did I learn?
    I make a fuss about a little thing
    The rhyme is losing to the riddling
    Where's the turn?
    I don't want a home, I'd ruin that
    Home is where my habits have a habitat
    Why give it turn?

    Oooh, after all the folderol
    And hauling over coals stops
    What did I learn?

    I am likely to miss the main event
    If I stop to cry or complain again
    So I will keep a deliberate pace
    Let the damned breeze dry my face

    Oh mister wait until you see
    What I'm gonna be

    I've got a plan, a demand and it just began
    And if you're right, you'll agree
    Here's coming a better version of me

    Here it comes, a better version of me
    Here it comes, a better version of me Writer/s: FIONA APPLE MAGGART
