Criminal Lyrics

I've been a bad bad girl
I've been careless
With a delicate man
And it's a sad sad world
When a girl will break a boy
Just because she can
Don't you tell me to deny it
I've done wrong and
I want to
Suffer for my sins
I've come to...

    This song is about some one who is confessing, because she feels guilty about the way she treated her lover, but let's face it, she is also bragging a little bit, because, you know, it's fun to be bad, and to toy with another person's emotions, it makes you feel powerful. Fiona Apple is an amazing young artist who blew people away when she first emerged on the scene. Her lyrics reflect vulnerability and a sensitive soul, but also a little bit of anger and mischief. I love it. "I've been a bad bad girl..."; that pretty much sums it up.
