A Moment in Time

(unreleased song, 1981)

Lyrics by Tori Amos

I can hardly believe
it's been a year now
since I was dependent on the world
that revolved around your love
where do those Christmases go so quickly
I can see those eyes so vividly
watching starlight turn to dawn
and as a child I welcomed prejudice
as a lover I spoke of
next year and next year
standing by your side
but when one's heart is in the way
I can't see past a moment in time
and how I relied
upon your strength to hide
my wounds from one who criticized
and by sunrise I'd been waiting
just to catch a tear that had been dried
