Aniversário da Tori Amos (IX)

O átomo não é um blog de muitas tradições. Na verdade, só consigo me lembrar de uma: todo ano, no aniversário da Tori Amos, eu posto a letra de uma de suas músicas. Foi uma coisa que começou meio de brincadeira, mas que, por qualquer motivo, decidi manter.

Mais uma vez, portanto, é hora de uma das muitas canções da minha cantora preferida aparecer no meu blog, porque hoje é o dia no qual Tori completa 48 aninhos. Este ano, porém, ela aparentemente resolveu me trollar, e deixou para lançar seu novo álbum só no mês que vem, de forma que não posso colocar aqui uma das músicas novas. Assim, colocarei uma das antigas mesmo, uma das minhas preferidas, a que abre o álbum Scarlet's Walk.

E, como de costume: parabéns, Tori, muitos anos de vida!

Amber Waves
Letra e música: Tori Amos


Well He lit you up
Like Amber Waves in his movie show
He fixed you up real good
Till I don't know you anymore

From Ballet Class to a Lap Dance
Straight to video
And the pool side news
Was that he would be
Launching you

Into every young man's bedroom
You gave it up
On DVD and magazine
You gave it up
A private rite of passage
You gave it up
To every boy's sweet dream
With their paper cuts

You said he's got a healing machine
It glows in the dark
Glows in the dark
You say there's not a lot of me
Left anymore
Just leave it alone

But if you're by
And you have the time
Tell the Northern Lights to keep shining
Oh, lately it seems like they're drowning

He could light you up
And summon every swan to the Lakeside
Off to Cabo San Lucas
For some optical stimulus

Then you started to guess
There was someone else
Though His flint glass
Seeing all of you
Immersed in His sepia

Into every young man's bedroom
You gave it up
On DVD and magazine
You gave it up
A private rite of passage
You gave it up
To every boy's sweet dream
With their paper cuts

You said he's got a healing machine
It glows in the dark
Glows in the dark
You say there's not a lot of me
Left anymore
Just leave it alone

But if you're by
And you have the time
Tell the Northern Lights to keep shining
Oh, lately it seems like they're drowning

So I went by
Cause I had the time
And told the Northern Lights to keep shining
They told me to tell you
They're waving
