Ruby through the Looking-Glass

Lyrics by Tori Amos

feel a little hand turning inside me
don't you think she feels us fighting
strike me at the root
I won't let you
put her through
what you put me through

when I said I wanted it all
doesn't every woman want it all

running through the house screaming
girl unstrung you could always play that one
baptized of fire and every beat in the bar
hymns for her
feel her kick me from the inside

when I said I wanted it all
doesn't every woman want it all
as a man do you find doesn't every boy smoke to cry

you could almost drown her waterfall
you could almost drown my waterfall

through the looking glass, Ruby sees
things in you
things in me
she won't wanna be just a little light turning the key
at the root, what I missed she will carry

when I said I wanted it all
doesn't every woman want it all
as a man do you find doesn't every boy smoke to cry
smoke to cry, smoke to cry

feel a little hand turning
turning
Ruby
