Lyrical Nonsense XV

This is my favorite Fiona Apple song [it’s a clichéd choice, I know], and of course, the video is great – with or without the controversy that surrounded it. If you think too much about the lyrics, some of it could almost have some religious overtones.

Oh help me but don’t tell me
To deny it
I’ve got to cleanse myself
Of all these lies till I’m good
Enough for him
I’ve got a lot to lose and I’m
Bettin’ high
So I’m beggin’ you before it ends
Just tell me where to begin

What I need is a good defense
‘Cause I’m feelin’ like a criminal
And I need to be redeemed
To the one I’ve sinned against
Because he’s all I ever knew of love

Like I said, you have to read too much into the lyrics.
