Liquid Diamonds

Lyrics by Tori Amos

Surrender then start your engines
you'll know quite soon what my mistake was
for those on horse back or dog sled
you turn at the bend in the road
I hear she still grants forgiveness
although I willingly forgot her
the offering is molasses and you say

I guess I'm an underwater thing
So I guess you can't take it personally
I'm liquid running
there's a sea secret in me
it's plain to see it is rising
but I must be flowing liquid diamonds

calling for my soul
at the corners of the world
I know she's playing poker
with the rest of the scragglers
and if your friends don't come back to you
and you know this is madness
a lilac mess in your prom dress
and you say

I guess I'm an underwater thing
So I guess you can't take it personally
I'm liquid running
there's a sea secret in me
it's plain to see it is rising
but I must be flowing liquid diamonds...

I go inside a shell
I see its soul
and you're doing
oh so well these days
you do it again
and I say it's coming back again
something like that
this Saturday, such was it
can he bring me those jeans
keep it back, Daddy's down
preaching back and to himself
keep it just between us
it's liquid...


Tori Quotes

I don't know of anybody who's gonna be fulfilled if they get hit by a bus. You have to surrender to that eternal need to be fulfilled. That's very much what "Liquid Diamonds" was for me. [Record Collector - November 1999]
