Lyrics by Tori Amos

my samurai, said
I'm going to the sanctuary
I knew about my la la love too
my samurai
done making a liar
liar of me when
to be happy
to be you

he says

my samurai
take me down to the
a yeah, to sanctuary
and I'm free
gonna be
you know me
you know me
I said, I'm gonna be
gonna be
you know me

my samurai
taking my face
and she's sticking it on a daisy
and you...
