Liquid Diamonds ~ Tori Amos

 Surrender

 then start your engines.
You’ll know quite soon

what my mistake was.
For those on horseback or dog sled,

you turn on at the bend in the road.
I hear she still grants forgiveness,

although I willingly forgot her.
The offering is molasses,

and you say…

I guess I’m an underwater thing

 so I guess I can’t take it personally.
I guess I’m an underwater thing,

 liquid running.
There’s a sea secret in me

it’s plain to see that it is rising.
But I must be flowing

 liquid diamonds…

liquid…

 liquid diamonds.

Calling for my soul

at the corners of the world.
I know she’s playing poker

with the rest of the stragglers.
Calling for my soul

at the corners of the world.
I know she’s playin’ poker

with the rest, the rest…

and if your friends don’t come back to you
and you know this is madness.
A lilac mess in your prom dress,

 and you say…

I guess I’m an underwater thing

so I guess I can’t take it personally.
I guess I’m an underwater thing,

liquid running
There’s a sea secret in me

 it’s plain to see that it is rising
But I must be flowing

liquid diamonds

liquid…

liquid diamonds. I call.

 I go inside her.

Shall I see it so?
And you’re doing oh-so-well these days.

You do it again.
And I say

 it’s coming back again.

Something like that.
These Saturdays, such muse in it,

can he bring me those chains?
Keep it back.

Daddy’s down

preachin’ back into himself.
Keep it just between us, yes.

It’s liquid…

 liquid…

 liquid…
