I Don't Know How to Leave You

from Y Kant Tori Read demo, 1985
music and lyrics by Myra Ellen Amos a.k.a. "Tori" Amos


Lyrics by Tori Amos

I lie in bed
Your body is near
You turn your back
Your message is clear
I hold my drink
I leave you alone
Oh....

I lie instead
And say I don't care
I change into
A dress I don't wear
The night's ahead
It's just an affair
Oh...

I don't know how to please you
I don't know what you need anymore
I don't know how to please you
I don't know what you need anymore
But I don't know how to leave you

He knows, a-oh
When I'm around
I'm too trained, you know
Not to make a sound
I hold my drink
I leave you alone
Oh...

I don't know how to please you
I don't know what you need anymore
I don't know how to please you
I don't know what you need anymore
But I don't know how to leave you
