Angie

written by Mick Jagger & Keith Richards (The Rolling Stones)

Lyrics by Tori Amos

Angie, Angie, when will those clouds all disappear
Angie, Angie, where will it lead us from here
with no loving in our soul
and no money in our coats
you can't say we're satisfied
but Angie, Angie, you can't say we never tried
Angie, you're beautiful
but ain't it time we said goodbye

All the dreams we held so close
seemed to all go up in smoke, now
let me whisper in your ear
Angie, Angie, where will it lead us from here

with no loving in our souls
and no money in our coats
you can't say we're satisfied
oh, Angie, I still love you, baby
everywhere I look I see your eyes
there's not another one/woman
that's ever comes close to you
dry those tears from your eyes

hey, Angie, Angie, you can't say we never tried
Angie, I still love you
but ain't it time we said goodbye


Tori Quotes

"I want to play you one of my favorite songs of all time. This is my song... with my first love..." [unknown concert - 1994]

"There are certain songs that I think change your life. Anyway, this is one of those songs that um... you know when the parents would go away? Eileen Gallaher's parents would go away. And we'd go over to her house. All the kids in our class and the older boys, which is always good, they're two years older. And they'd come over Eileen's house and uh... you know, girls, there's always that one you kind of want to be in a corner with. And your friend Cindy gets him. But um, anyway, she's like your best friend so you can't kill her. But um, so you're like hanging out, thinking well maybe Cindy will get tired and, and I'll take seconds, it's okay. But um... she doesn't get tired. So you're sitting there, you know... mmmm-mmm-mmm-mm-mm, and um, the guy in geometry that you kind of hate is sitting over there... um, rubbing himself and stuff. And you figure, okay it's definitely time for me to go get the pizza. So you go get the pizza and you hear this song and it doesn't matter that Cindy Luhman is with that guy because you can have anybody you want when you listen to this song." [Detroit, Michigan (concert) - July 4, 1994]
