A Piano: The Collection (box set)

press release / promo CD


Not David Bowie

Lyrics by Tori Amos

Vultures in my garden
Figures that I know them
And it is what it is

You were good once
Now you're filled with bitterness
And it is what it is

I cannot forget that he can't forget her
or that some friends just change like the seasons
Take me back to the fact that you still blame me
but I am not the reason you are not David Bowie

Now you want to steal the thoughts
that I haven't even thought
and it is what it is

How 'bout your soul?
Made a pact with the Devil
and needs a date with the surgeon
and it is what it is

I cannot forget that he can't forget her
or that some friends just change like the seasons
Take me back to the fact that you still blame me
but I am not the reason you are not David Bowie
not David Bowie

You forgot to value
what all of us have done for you
and it is what it is

You swore you were concious
not a champagne spiritualist
and it is what it is

I cannot forget that he can't forget
or that some friends just change like the seasons
Take me back to the fact that you're still blaming
but I am not the reason you are not David Bowie
not David Bowie
not David Bowie

Tori Quotes

I constantly have songs that I think should have made a record but for whatever reason didn't make the final edit. Usually I can explain to myself and to the songs why. But in the case of this particular creature, maybe because the party that was happening that night was distracting me from making a sound decision, I couldn't see its merits for the margaritas.
