Looking for Eldorado

(unreleased song, 1987)

Lyrics by Tori Amos

I know this isn't right
But I'm too scared to leave
I wish I were alone
In a boat on the sea
I don't know what I want
I feel I'm drowning
Your outstretched hand
Can not rescue me

I've been looking
for Eldorado
Looking for Eldorado
nana, nana....
Paradise is
in Eldorado
Looking for Eldorado
nana, nana....

The footprints of a stallion
Is all that we leave
No map to guide the weary
To this place of peace
A mountain lifts its shoulders
Above falling leaves
Am I to die
Without finding

I've been looking
for Eldorado
Looking for Eldorado
nana, nana....
Paradise is
in Eldorado
Looking for Eldorado
nana, nana....
