Fallen Angel

(unreleased song, 1987)

Lyrics by Tori Amos

Verse 1:

Scottie and me
We took off in her Father's old
Sports car
High school's a jungle
When you don't fit in any more
Cutting our classes to meet boys
Dad wouldn't care for
His darling daughter
Always had a mind of her own

Chorus:

Fallen angel
I am in your eyes
Maybe angels
Fall before they learn to fly

Verse 2:

You and your friends
are also caught up
in impressions
Everyone seems to forget
We're supposed to have fun
I didn't fall into line
the way you planned
You'd die if you knew
Jesus played synth
in a soul band

Chorus:

Fallen angel
I am in your eyes
Maybe angels
Fall before they learn to fly

Fallen angel
I am in your eyes
Maybe angels
Fall before they learn to fly

Bridge:

"You've been bad Tori Read
Give up your radio
Off to bed without pudding
Get a job, change your hair
Find a decent boy who doesn't
Wear earrings"

Chorus:

Fallen angel
I am in your eyes
Maybe angels
Fall before they learn to fly

Fallen angel
I am in your eyes
Maybe angels
Fall before they learn to fly

Daddy it's my turn to fly
