TORI AMOS


Mother Lyrics

Go, go, go, go now
Out of the nest, it's time
Go, go, go now
Circus girl without a safety net
Here, here now, don't cry
You raised your hand for the assignment
Tuck those ribbons under your helmet
Be a good soldier
First my left foot then my right behind the other
Pantyhose running in the cold

Mother, the car is here
Somebody leave the light on
Green limousine for the redhead
Dancing, dancing girl
And when I dance for him
Somebody leave the light on
Just in, just in case I like the dancing
I can remember where I come from

I walked into your dream
And now I've forgotten how to dream my own dream
You are the clever one aren't you
Brides in veils for you
We told you all of our secrets
All but one and don't you even try
The phone has been disconnected
Dripping with blood and with time and with your advice
Poison me against the moon

Mother, the car is here
Somebody leave the light on
Black chariot for the redhead
Dancing, dancing girl
He's going to change my name
Maybe you'll leave the light on
Just in, just in case I like the dancing
I can remember where I come from

I escape into
Your escape into
Our very favourite fearscape
It's across the sky
And across my heart
And I crossed my legs
Oh my god
First my left foot then my right behind the other
Breadcrumbs lost under the snow

Mother
Mother, the car is here, here
Maybe, maybe you'll leave the light on
For the, for the, for the dancing girl
He's going to change my name
Maybe you'll leave the light
Just in case I like the dancing
I can remember where I come, come from

Mother, mother, mother
