Somewhere down past Roosterspur bridge
Perhaps just a trick of the light
I thought I heard the sweetest guitar
Was it a rock and roll Jesus

Sometimes I think, I think I understand
The fear in the boy, the fire in the man
Sometimes I watch the wonder in your eyes
That and you leaving I have memorized
That and you leaving I have memorized

Drove all night through Sliding Rock Falls
Thinking I'd find something that we'd lost
Can't remember when you stopped laughing
Or when I stopped wanting to win

Sometimes I think, I think I understand
The fear in the boy, the fire in the man
Sometimes I watch the wonder in your eyes
That and you leaving I have memorized

Do you even see me now?
Do you think of us still?
Do I always read things in
Before a day's deliverance
On Roosterspur bridge?

Sometimes I think, I think I understand
The fear in the boy, the fire in the man
Sometimes I watch the wonder in your eyes
That and you leaving I have memorized
That and you leaving
That and you leaving I have memorized

One of the songs that really made me rethink my initial reaction to Tori's work.  I'm a big fan now.  Thank you RP.    
I'm am an intolerant tosser a lot of the time. Like today. When my mood is a bit on the grouchy side I can't listen to Tori. My problem I know, so I don't want to rate her any lower than she deserves just because my ears are annoyed.
I generally don't mind Tori Amos, but I find she does occupy a startling percentage of RP's airtime... could stand a little bit less...

Right you were. Fixed now.

No, you're right, it's painful.

Me three. There are some voices that just sound like someone is stabbing you in the ears with a fondue fork. Just toooo whiny.
Agreed...not good at all.

Exceptional.
Another wonderful song from a sensational artist. While it took a while for some of the songs on this CD to sink in, this one caught my ear immediately. Something very soothing about it. :hearteyes:

I like this, very nice. This album may win me back to Tori...I loved her early on, but I think by her 3rd or 4th album she lost me. This is the third track from this album that I really like...I may have to pick it up!
... three down twenty to go :music: it's a mistresspiece! You'll love it! Do it! Pick it up, you won't regret it! :whipit: Will you?

This particular song sounds too much like all of her other stuff. I like Tori, but I'm a little tired of the same old thing.
Are you talking about the same Tori?

Nice songs you like, they are in my top 5 by Tori, too. This one seems again something to like a lot...I am starting to like this whole album and RP has been very good on introducing some of the songs. Thanks.
:hug:

Tori's slide into mediocrity is actually an improvement.
Gotta but this :music: Soon!

Next tune please :wall:
This is a lot more "traditional" Tori than the others songs we've heard from the new album. Personally, I like it, but I like the others better. I'm digging that new jazzy groove she has on the MILF song.
:sick: me no like
This has to be some of the worst cover "art" in recent memory.
Frist! Not as bad as the other one floating out there.. yet.
