    Excuse me but can I be you for a while
    My dog wont bite if you sit real still
    I got the anti-christ in the kitchen yellin at me again
    Yeah I can hear that

    Been saved again by the garbage truck
    I got something to say you know but nothing comes
    Yes I know what you think of me- you never shut up
    Yeah I can hear that

    But what if Im a mermaid
    In these jeans of his with her name still on it
    Hey but I dont care cause sometimes, I said sometimes
    I hear my voice and its been here
    Silent all these years

    So you found a girl who thinks really deep thoughts
    Whats so amazing about really deep thoughts
    Boy you best pray that I bleed real soon
    Hows that thought for ya

    My scream got lost in a paper cup
    You think theres a heaven where some screams have gone
    I got 25 bucks and a cracker, go you think its enough
    To get us there

    Cause what if Im a mermaid
    In these jeans of his with her name still on it
    Hey but I dont care cause sometimes, I said sometimes
    I hear my voice and its been here
    Silent all these years

    Years go by will I still be waiting
    For somebody else to understand
    Years go by if Im stripped of my beauty
    And the orange cloud raining in my head
    Years go by will I choke on my tears
    Till finally there is nothing left
    One more casualty
    You know were too easy easy easy

    Well I love the way we communicate
    Your eyes focus on my funny lip shade
    Lets hear what you think of me now but baby dont look up
    The sky is falling

    Your mother shows up in a nasty dress
    Its your turn now to stand where I stand
    Everybody lookin at you, here take a hold of my hand
    Yeah I can hear them

    But what if Im a mermaid
    In these jeans of his with her name still on it
    Hey but I dont care cause sometimes, I said sometimes
    I hear my voice
    I hear my voice
    I hear my voice
    And its been here
    Silent all these years
    Ive been here
    Silent all these years

    I love Tori Amos!!! :wink:
     
  3. :cool:Kewl!

    She was AWESOME when she first came out! The brutal honesty in her lyrics floored me and yeah, I gobbled it up! Holy Sh*t - 1991 - "Little Earthquakes"!!

    My fave (tho t'was hard to choose) was "CRUCIFY"!!

    (Seriously - why DO we crucify ourselves?!)
