  • 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 Writer/s: Fiona Apple Maggart
