Listen to My Heart

(unreleased song, 1987)

Lyrics by Tori Amos

Verse 1:

Hey, something's missing
But something's keeping me here
You swear that things will change
"Give it just one more year"

Hey, feel it raining
And we are both outside
You think it will just go away
Darlin', if we close our eyes
And I am crying all the time
There are some things you cannot hide

Chorus:

And I don't want to die
Thinking what I might have been
And I don't want to live my life
Saying that I should have
Listened to my heart
You can't hear me
Listen to my heart
Love is blind
Listen to my heart
You can't hear me
Listen to my heart
We're running out of time

Verse 2:

Maybe I will
Maybe I won't
Baby, I don't know
What maybe is anymore

A chance to change my life
To change my luck
Is right through that door
Oh, is love a sacrifice
Is it yours or mine

Chorus:

And I don't want to die
Thinking what I might have been
And I don't want to live my life
Saying that I should have
Listened to my heart
You can't hear me
Listen to my heart
Love is blind
Listen to my heart
You can't hear me
Listen to my heart
We're running out of time

Bridge:

And I look at the clock
And I listen to the drum
And I'm so afraid
That I'm running out of time
And I look at the clock
And I listen to the drum
And I'm so afraid
That I'm running out of time

Chorus:

And I don't want to die
Thinking what I might have been
And I don't want to live my life
Saying that I should have
Listened to my heart
You can't hear me
Listen to my heart
Love is blind
Listen to my heart
You can't hear me
Listen to my heart
We're running out of time
