Song of the Day: Tori Amos - Northern Lad

Okay, I don't know what it is, but I've never really gotten into Tori.  Even though on paper I should really like her.  Female, emotional, pick some other adjectives.  She's the kind of artist I normally like.  But for whatever reason I've never quite been on the same wavelength as her music.

Having said all that, I really like this song.  How had I never heard it before? Seriously, I really like this song.  Maybe I'm vain enough to have given it a little longer listen, a deeper listen, just because of the subject of the song!

"Northern Lad"

Had a northern lad
Well not exactly had
He moved like the sunset
God who painted that
First he love my accent
How his knees could bend
I thought we'd be ok
Me and my molasses
But I feel someting is wrong
But I fell this cake just isn't done
Don't say that you Don't
And if you could see me now
Said if you could see me now
Girls you've got to know
When it's time to turn the page
When you're only wet
Because of the rain
He don't show much these days
It's gets so fucking cold
I loved his secret places
But I can't go anymore
"you change like sugar cane"
Says me northern lad
I guess you go too far
When pianos try to be guitars
I feel the west in you
And I feel it falling apart too
Don't say that you Don't
And if you could see me now
Said if you could see me now
Girls you've got to know
When it's time to turn the page
When you're only wet
Because of the rain
When you're only wet
Because of the rain
