Fiona Apple Quotes
"Come on. I got drunk when I was like 5."
"The way I feel about music is that there is no right and wrong. Only true and false."
"I say tell me the truth, but you don't dare. I tell you how I feel but you don't care. You say love is a hell you cannot bear. Well I say give me mine back and then go there, for all I care!"
"My biggest inspiration has been romantic relationships, because there's something about the way that you are in a relationship that is reflective of your relationship with the world."
