Tori Amos: soundtracks & compilations


Losing My Religion / Butterfly

Butterfly

from Higher Learning (soundtrack)

Lyrics by Tori Amos

Stinky soul, get a little lost in my own
Hey General, need a little love in that hole of yours
One ways, now, and Saturdays
and our kittens all wrapped in cement
From cradle to gumdrops
Got me running girl as fast as I can

And is it right, butterfly
they like you better framed and dried

Daddy dear, if I can kill one man why not two?
Well, nurses smile when you've got iron veins
you can't stain their pretty shoes
And pom poms and cherry blondes
And their kittens still wrapped in cement
From God's saviours to gumdrops
got me running girl as fast as I can

And is it right, butterfly
they like you better framed and dried

Got a pretty, pretty garden, pretty garden, yes, hey
Got me a pretty, pretty garden, a pretty garden, yes
Got me a pretty, pretty garden, a pretty garden
