Aniversário da Tori Amos (VI)

Hoje é aniversário de Tori Amos, minha cantora preferida e musa deste blog. Portanto, como acontece todos os anos, hoje é dia de uma letra de uma de suas músicas, para comemorar. Neste dia em que Tori completa 45 anos, porém, eu não vou colocar uma letra de uma música de seu álbum mais recente, mas sim de um bem antigo, o primeiro que eu comprei, e através do qual a fiquei conhecendo, Little Earthquakes. Semana que vem, retornaremos à nossa progrmação normal. Feliz aniversário, Tori, e muitos anos de vida!



Girl
Letra e música: Tori Amos

From in the shadow she calls
And in the shadow she finds a way
Finds a way
And in the shadows she crawls
Clutching her faded photograph
My image under her thumb
Yes, with a message for my heart
Yes, with a message for my heart

She's been everybody else’s girl
Maybe one day she'll be her own
Everybody else's girl
Maybe one day she'll be her own

Hey
And in the doorway they stay
And laugh as violins fill with water
Screams from the bluebells can't make them go away
Well I'm not seventeen
But I've cuts on my knees
Fallin' down as the winter takes one more cherry tree

She's been everybody else's girl
Maybe one day she'll be her own
Everybody else's girl
Maybe one day she'll be her own

Everyone else's girl, maybe one day she'll be her own
Everyone else's girl, maybe one day she'll be her own
Rushin' rivers thread so thin
Limitation dreams with the flying pigs
Turbid blue and the drugstores too
Safe in their coasts and in their do's
Yeah, smother in our hearts
A pillow to my dots
Maybe one day, maybe one day,
One day she'll be her own

And in the mist there she rides
And castles are burning in my heart
And as I twist I hold tight
And I ride to work every morning
Wondering why

Sit in the chair and be good now
And become all that they told you
The white coats enter her room
And I'm callin' my baby
Callin' my baby
Callin' my baby
Callin'

Everybody else's girl
Maybe one day she'll be her own
Everybody else's girl
Maybe one day she'll be her own
Everybody else's girl
Maybe one day she’ll be her own
