You'll never see the courage I know
It's colors richness won't appear within your view

You'll never touch these things that I hold
The skin of my emotion lies beneath my own
You'll never feel the heat of this soul
My fever burns me deeper than I've ever shown...to you.

You'll never live the life that I live
I'll never live the life that wakes me in the night
You'll never hear the message I give
You say it looks as though I might give up this fight

But as the scenery grows, I see in different lights
The shades and shadows undulate in my perception
My feelings swell and stretch--I see from greater heights
I understand what I am now too smart to mention to you

Oliviah, Oliviah
How you ROCK MY WORLD, LITTLE FLORIDA GIRL. Now I just got burned touching the screen, Those Flames are real and the words burn my soul. The flames dance in my head. So many things to say, but I can't get it out.

This is my ALL TIME FAVORITE Fiona Apple song (sad that I have one isn't it?). I just went through a break-up (sorts) and this became my anthem, then Shadowboxer. Damn I love this song, must go listen now!

you rock my world as well. This looks like a very colorful flame. And I love Fiona. Some of my best scientific work has come while listening to her. Beautiful stuff.
