about

"Tori Amos goes to Ireland"

lyrics

LADDERS T Randle
As the morning bludgeons the evening and the darkness is all but a scent
And your footprints shatter the slivers of stars into tiny shards where you went
And the howls ring out through the frozen air for the wolves have not yet been released
And they’ll greet you with a loyalty reserved for lovers, but you can never trust the beast

And the kowhai tree could never bare the burden of snow
And the knowing winter would bring and how your discontentment would grow
And the skyline’s beauty bruised, set behind poplar trees
Makes her heart hang its heavy head, the weight set to buckle her knees
She’s down on her knees

And she’ll sit in her refuge of silver and she’ll write till her fingers are numb
Some she’ll keep but most she will discard in the hope that others will come
And the wood smoke swift and inviting tells of days much different from these
She’s surrounded by boxes that lie open mouthed, unassuming and willing to please
And the kowhai tree could never bare the burden of snow

And she’ll clap her hands and destroy him and the sound will hollow resound
But she’ll gravely underestimate how she will wound him and the ladders that he’ll place around
