  • So be it, I'm your crowbar
    If that's what I am so far
    Until you get out of this mess

    And I will pretend
    That I don't know of your sins
    Until you are ready to confess
    But all the time, all the time
    I'll know, I'll know

    And you can use my skin
    To bury secrets in
    And I will settle you down

    And at my own suggestion
    I will ask no questions
    While I do my thing in the background
    But all the time, all the time
    I'll know, I'll know

    I can't help you out
    While she is still around

    So for the time being, I'm being patient
    And amidst this bitterness
    If you'll just consider this
    Even if it don't make sense all the time
    Give it time

    And when the crowd becomes your burden
    And you've early closed your curtain
    I'll wait by the backstage door

    While you try to find
    The lines to speak your mind
    And pry it open, hoping for an encore
    And if it gets too late, for me to wait
    For you to find you love me, and tell me so
    It's okay, don't need to say it Writer/s: Fiona Apple Maggart
