Fiona Apple: Paper Bag Meaning

Song Released: 2000


Paper Bag Lyrics

I was staring at the sky, just looking for a star
To pray on, or wish on, or something like that

    She becomes the mess. Anxious, worries, numb.

    Funny how much the alcoholic's behavior can affect a person.

    Sounds like a person I've been crazy about for years. Sleepless nights thinking about him, and him being equally in "love" with me. Only to be left feeling empty from time to time, hyping him up in my head, trying to justify him as my soulmate, and finding out that he's just a "boy". Being in "love" but so indecisive turns one a bit crazy.
