better version of me lyrics – fiona apple

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 can 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 a turn

oh, 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 d*mned 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
