This used to be one of my favorite songs to sing in karaoke, back in my bar party girl days (daze?). I only started singing it because a host said it was his favorite song and bet me that I couldn't learn it.
So I did.
I always loved taking that GIANT breath at the end so that I could squeeze out the last lines before running out of breath.
Fast as you can, baby wait watch me, I'll be out
Fast as I can, maybe late but at least about
Fast as you can leave me, let this thing
Run its route, fast as you can....
I also sang this a lot, when places had it to choose from:
I won many-a-contest with my Alanis impersonations.
Weird to think about how different my life is now from then, but I wouldn't change a thing.
So don't want to work tonight.
Also, note that I do not bruise easily whatsoever. Hell, my brother dropped a BIKE on my forehead and you couldn't see a thing, for the most part, though it hurt like a mo-fo. This said, many of the claw wounds on my leg have BRUISED around the entry wound, Bacci hit me so hard.
Thank you all for your advice. She's been fine since then, and i know that i was speaking out of the immediate stress of it all. i promise i won't kill her.
