This is about the problems involved with renting and sharing houses.... At the time, I was feeling very insecure about losing a lovely house in Stoke Newington, due to two sets of flat mates moving out. "Free Fiona," is also the name of a Fiona Apple fan site, which campaigned to have her third album released.


Sharing a house is awkward to arrange
You need somewhere when you're not ready
Contracts end on different work days
And you can't move in, before the last tennants move out

Landlords can be angry
License to print money
So why aren't they friends?
Give the girl a home and free Fiona

Always end up with strangers or alone
And so do your friends, because the timing is wrong
Someone is left out and hurt
and you're stuck in a house, not a home

You can afford somewhere that's good, with a best friend
Depends on jobs, money and time, hanging around
Don't want to see you left alone
But homeless if you move along
