Music to get you through: Get Gone

I was a big Fiona Apple fan in college, back when I had my own music library and my own ability to chose the music that I liked best. Long before The Narcissist made me delete all of the music that I loved and only listen to things that he liked.

I heard this gem pop on a playlist the other day and the lyrics hit me in an entirely new and different way.

These lyrics are how I felt right before I left The Narcissist.

Get Gone – Fiona Apple 

“How many times do I have to say
To get away-get gone
Flip your shit past another lasses
Humble dwelling

You got your game, made your shot, and you got away
With a lot, but I’m not turned-on
So put away that meat you’re selling

Cuz I do know what’s good for me-
And I’ve done what I could for you
But you’re not benefiting, and yet I’m sitting
Singing again, sing, sing again

How can I deal with this, if he won’t get with this
Am I gonna heal from this; he won’t admit to it
Nothing to figure out; I gotta get him out
It’s time the truth was out that he don’t give a
Shit about me

How many times can it escalate
Till it elevates to a place I can’t breathe?
And I must decide, if you must deride
That I’m much obliged to up and go
I’ll idealize, then realize that it’s no
Sacrifice, because the price is paid, and
There’s nothing left to grieve
Fuckin go-

Cuz I’ve done what I could for you, and I do know what’s
Good for me and I’m not benefiting, instead
I’m sitting singing again, singing again, singing again,
Sing, sing, sing again

How can I deal with this, if he won’t get with this
M’I gonna heal from this; he won’t admit to it
Nothing to figure out; I gotta get him out
It’s time the truth was out that he don’t give a
Shit about me”

  1. This is one I blast when I need it (and my kids aren’t around). Also “not the doctor” by A. Morrisette. Thanks for the reminder on that great song. I’ll que it up 🙂
