Tori Amos

A Sorta Fairytale – Tori Amos

on my way up north
up on the ventura
i pulled back the hood
and i was talking to you
and i knew then it would be
a life long thing
but i didn’t know that we
we could break a silver lining

and i’m so sad
like a good book
i can’t put this day back
a sorta fairytale
with you
a sorta fairytale
with you

things you said that day
up on the 101
the girl had come undone
i tried to downplay it
with a bet about us
you said that-
you’d take it
as long as i could
i could not erase it

and i’m so sad
like a good book
i can’t put this day back
a sorta fairytale
with you
a sorta fairytale
with you

and i ride along side
and i rode along side
you then
and i rode along side
till you lost me there
in the open road
and i rode along side
till the honey spread
itself so thin
for me to break your bread
for me to take your word
i had to steal it

and i’m so sad
like a good book
i can’t put this day back
a sorta fairytale
with you
a sorta fairytale
with you

i could pick back up
whenever i feel

down new mexico way
something about
the open road
i knew that he was
looking for some indian blood and
find a little in you find a little
in me we may be
on this road but
we’re just
impostors
in this country you know
so we go along and we said
we’d fake it
feel better with
oliver stone
till i
almost smacked him –
seemed right that night and
i don’t know what
takes hold
out there in the
desert cold
these guys think they must
try and just get over on us

and i’m so sad
like a good book
i can’t put this
day back
a sorta fairytale
with you
a sorta fairytale
with you

and i was ridin’ by
ridin’ along side
for a while till you lost me
and i was ridin’ by
ridin’ along till you lost me
till you lost
me in
the rear
view
you lost me
i said

way up north i took my day
all in all was a pretty nice
day and i put the hood
right back where
you could taste heaven
perfectly
feel out the summer breeze
didn’t know when we’d be back
and i, i don’t
didn’t think
we’d end up like
like this

1,000 Oceans – Tori Amos

These tear I’ve cried.
I’ve cried 1000 oceans.
And if it seems I’m floating
in the darkness…
I can’t believe that I would keep,
keep you from flying;
and I would cry 1000 more
if that’s what it takes to sail you home,
sail you home.

I’m aware what the rules are.
But you know that I will run.
You know that I will follow you
over Silbury Hill,
through the solar field.
You know that I will follow you.

And if I find that you
still remember
playing at trains,
or does this little blue ball
just fade away?
Over Silbury Hill,
through the solar field,
you know that I will follow you.
I’m aware what the rules are,
but you know that I will run.
You know that I will follow you.

These tears I’ve cried.
I’ve cried 1000 oceans.
And if it seems I’m floating
in the darkness…
Well, I can’t believe that I would keep,
keep you from flying.
So I will cry 1000 more
if that’s what it takes to
sail you home,
sail you home,
sail you home.

Yes, Anastasia – Tori Amos

I know what you want
your magpies have come
If you know me so well then
Tell me which hand I use

Make them go
Make it go

Saw her there in the restaurant
Poppy don’t go
I know your mother is a good one
But Poppy don’t go
I’ll take you home
Show me the things that I’ve been missin’
Show me the ways I forgot to be speaking
Show me the ways to get back to the garden
Show me the ways to get around the get around
Show me the ways to button up buttons
That have forgotten they’re buttons
Well we can’t have that forgetting that

Girls girls
What have we done, what have we done to ourselves

Driving on the vine
Over clothes lines
But officer I saw the sign

Thought I’d been through this in 1919
Counting the tears
Of ten thousand men
And gathered them all
But my feet are slipping
There’s something we left on the windowsill
There’s something we left yes

We’ll see how brave you are
We’ll see how fast you’ll be running
We’ll see how brave you are
Yes, Anastasia
And all your dollies have friends

Thought she deserved no less than she’d give
Well happy birthday
Her blood’s on my hands
It’s kind of a shame
Cause I did like that dress
It’s funny the things that you find in the rain
The things that you find
In the mall and
In the date-mines
In the knot still in her hair
On the bus I’m
On my way down
All the girls seem to be there

Come along now little darlin’
Come along now with me
Come along now little darlin’
We’ll see how brave you are

Samurai – Tori Amos

My Samurai
Said going to the sanctuary
I knew about my love too
My Samurai
Done making a liar of me when
To be happy
To be you

He says
My Samurai
Take me down to the sanctuary
And I’m free
Gonna be
You know me
You know me
I said I’m gonna be
Gonna be
You know me

My Samurai
Taking my face
And she’s sticking it on a daisy
And you

Jackie’s Strength – Tori Amos

A Bouvier till her wedding day
shots rang out the police came
mama layed me on the front lawn
and prayed for Jackie’s strength
feeling old by 21
never thought my day would come
my bridesmaids getting laid
I pray for Jackie’s strength
make me laugh
say you know what you want
you said we were the real thing
so I show you some more and I learn
what black magic can do
make me laugh
say you know you can turn
me into the real thing
so I show you some more and I learn

stickers licked on lunch boxes
worshipping David Cassidy
yeah I mooned him once on Donna’s box
she’s still in recovery
sleep-overs Beene’s got some pot
you’re only popular with anorexia
so I turn myself inside out
in hope someone will see

make me laugh
say you know what you want
you said we were the real thing
so I show you some more and I learn
what black magic can do
make me laugh
say you know you can turn
me into the real thing
so I show you some more
and I learn

I got lost on my wedding day
typical, the police came
but virgins always get backstage
no matter what they’ve got to say
if you love enough you’ll lie alot
guess they did in Camelot
mama’s waiting on my front lawn
I pray I pray I pray
for Jackie’s Strength

A Case of You – Tori Amos

Just before our love got lost you said
“I am as constant as the northern star”
And I said, “Constantly in the darkness
Where’s that at
If you want me I’ll be in the bar”
On the back of a cotton coaster
In the blue T.V. screen light
I drew a map of Canada
Oh Canada
With your face sketched on it twice

In my blood like holy wine
You taste so bitter and so sweet
Well, I could drink a case of you, darling
And I would still be on my feet
I would still be on my feet

Oh I am a lonely painter
I live in a box of paints
I’m frightened by the devil
And I’m drawn to those ones that ain’t afraid
I remember that time you told me
“Love is touching souls”
Surely you touched mine
‘Cause part of you pours out of me
In these lines from time to time

My blood
My holy wine
Tastes so bitter and so sweet
Well I could drink a case of you, darling
And I would still be on my feet
I would still be on my feet

I met a woman
She had a mouth like yours
She knew your devils and your deeds
And she said, “Go to him, stay with him
But be prepared to bleed”

My blood
My holy wine
Tastes so bitter and so sweet
Well I could drink a case of you, darling
And I would still be on my feet
I would still be on my feet
