What did you think I'd be doing now
While you left me, I was thinking aloud
Would there be no end to my sorrow
Will I make it through tomorrow

Chorus:
Let the autumn leaves fall
The chilly raindrops freeze
The white snow melts
I'll just sail on those seas
Fate, fate, fate stay with me
I wanna be, wanna be, wanna be free
Fate, fate, fate stay with me
I wanna be, wanna be, wanna be free

That wouldn't be any fun
I'd rather be lying on the sun
Together alone with you
Beneath the sky of blue

Repeat Chorus

Tell me! Tell me!
Will my light be blown out crying
Baby! Baby!
I feel as though I'm dying

Fate, Fate, Fate

Repeat chorus into fade

    AHHHHH Where are the hardcore Alanis fans on this one! This is her first song she ever recorded when she was like 10. She wrote it all by herself. Thats pretty good. Its almost like a cry for help from a little girl struggling with fame (as she was at the time)

    General CommentThis song is freakin' awesome. I wish I had the vinyl record. I saw it on ebay once but it was over $200 sadly.

    General Comment"I wanna be, wanna be, wanna be free." Alanis Nadine Morissette. 1984. 1994. 2004. Probably 2014. One her most consistent themes has been the freedom to perceive the world as it actually is rather than as culture dictates. (Somebody =please= give this woman an honorary Ph.D. before I =explode=.)
