Angela carter puts down her typewriter
And stares at the snow
Her bones getting brittle, hair turning whiter
Such a long way to go
Counting the stars in the sky
Wondering just where we are
Dreaming that you didn't die
Morning isn't that far

She lives in her own world
She lives in her own world

Tiny little toyshop, playing with fireworks
She set fire to the thames


Nights at the circus, an army of lovers
Like lightning to her friends
Indian river runs deep
Plunging right off of the page
Are you awake or asleep
You think I would know by this stage

Angela carter puts down her typewriter
And stares at the snow
Her bones getting brittle, hair turning whiter
Such a long way to go
Reflections distorted by time
Mirrors corrupted by youth
Now that you don't have to lie
Why don't you tell us the truth

Sounds like "See Emily Play" as sung by Marlon Brando in the Godfather. Not sure that's a good thing, either. Just so-so for me.

I love Angela Cartwright. :heartkiss:
Unique voice, nice guitar sound, lyrics tell an interesting story. Very good song structure.

Hmm. Is the song about the writer? :ask: EDIT: Evidently, yes.
K: Getting back to poetry for a moment - is there anyone you'd really recommend that people read, if they like your work? S: Yeah, if you like what I do, I think you should read "The Iliad" and "The Odyssey." And I think, Dylan Thomas, the Welsh poet; Angela Carter, who is an English writer; the French Surrealist poets, like Arthur Rambeau and Baudelaire; and Andre Breton and those kind of people. Bob Dylan used to go and read Rambeau. I think the Bible's really an interesting book to read, too, you know, looking for inspiration. I think almost anything -- sometimes I just sit down and look through a phone catalogue and look at people's names, you know? Or I overhear conversations on buses. I think you can get inspiration anywhere, if you're looking for it.
