Fast As I Can

This song is by erin mckeown and appears on the album Distillation (2002).

Tonight woke I in a strange bed
Strange bedfellow, strange
Tonight found I in a strange bed
Strange bedfellow, strange
Said it to me, "oh, you'll be all right"
Oh, said it to me, "oh, you'll be all right"

In a strange bed, in a strange bed
Bedfellow strange

Said it to me, what they've always said
Said it to me, what I've always heard
You're gonna make it
You're gonna make it
You're gonna make it girl
You're gonna make it
You're gonna make it
You're gonna make it girl
Girl, you sleep with success
Girl, you sleep with success tonight

Slept, I have, in beds of Middle America
Life off the fat of the man
I'm gonna go out tonight
I'm gonna try, try to make it
Live I as fast as I can
Live I as fast I as can

And I said to it, "success, I didn't
Recognize you at first"
But then I said to it, "success,
You don't look the way I have
Dreamed of you,
Dreamed of you"
"Well, not strange," said success,
"To find me here tonight.
Not strange," said success.
"So, what say you to a bargain twixt
You and I, success and life?"
Wwhat say you to a bargain twixt
You and I, success"
And success it said to me
"Forget about the beds of middle America
You don't need the fat of the man
Why don't you sleep with me tonight?
That's all you've got to do to make it

And die as fast as we can
Die as fast we as can."

Well I said to it, "success, I
Couldn't love you if I tried"
Well I said to it, 'success, I
Couldn't love you if I tried
And I've tried and I've tried and I've tried"
Something about success that lies
Something about success that lies
Lies next to me
In a strange bed, a strange bed
Bedfellow strange
