The Lonely Parade

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


Lyrics by Tori Amos

Do you feel sorry
for yourself
all the dreams
you had
just haven't worked out
there's a long long line
where you can watch your
dream go by
there's a long long line
oh but

It's not the only parade
it's just the lonely parade
don't go where balloons
are fading
wipe those tears off your face
this band doesn't play
the lonely parade
the lonely parade

We all go through
the same zoo
but you threw your
hope away
do roses bloom in a day?
there's a long long line
where you can watch your
dream go by
there's a long long line
oh but

It's not the only parade
it's just the lonely parade
don't go where balloons
are fading
wipe those tears off your face
this band doesn't play
the lonely parade
the lonely parade
