China

Lyrics by Tori Amos

China all the way to New York I can feel the distance getting close you're right next to me but I need an airplane I can feel the DISTANCE as you breath sometimes I think you want me to touch you how can I when you build the great WALL around you in your eyes I saw a future together you just look away in the distance china decorates our table funny how the cracks don't seem to show pour the wine dear you say we'll take a holiday but we never can agree on where to go China all the way to New York maybe you got lost in MEXICO you're right next to me I think that you can hear me funny how the distance learns to grow I can feel the distance I can feel the distance I can feel the distance getting close...


Tori Quotes

The fifths in the bass represent the beginning of an ancient ceremony. This ceremony took me to "China," took me to the kitchen table where most wars get nurtured. I've always felt "China" and secrets are good friends. This song was the first written on Little Earthquakes. [Little Earthquakes songbook]
