Silent all these years Lyrics

Silent all these years by Tori Amos  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music



Silent all these years Excuse me but can I be you for awhile,
My dog won't bite if you sit real still,
I got the anti-Christ in the kitchen yellin' at me again
Yeah I can hear that
Been saved again by the garbage truck
I got something to say you know but nothing comes
Yes I know what you think of me you never shut up
Yeah I can hear that

But what if I'm a mermaid, in these jeans of his
With her name still on it
Hey but I don't care 'cause
Sometimes, I said sometimes
I hear my voice and it's been here
Silent all these years

So you found a girl who thinks really deep thoughts
What's so amazing about really deep thoughts
Boy you best pray that I bleed real soon
How's that thought for you
My scream got lost in a paper cup
I think there's a heaven where some screams have gone
I got 25 bucks and a cracker do you think it's enough
To get us there 'cause...

What if I'm a mermaid in these jeans of his
With her name still on it
Hey but I don't care 'cause
Sometimes, I said sometimes
I hear my voice and it's been here
Silent all these -

Years go by, will I still be waiting
For somebody else to understand
Years go by if I'm stripped of my beauty
And the orange clouds raining in my hand
Years go by, will I choke on my tears
'Til finally there is nothing left
One more casualty you know
We're too easy easy easy...

Well I love the way we communicate
Your eyes focus on my funny lip shape
Let's hear what you think of me now
And baby don't look up, the sky is falling
Your mother shows up in a nasty dress
It's your turn now to stand where I stand
Everybody lookin' at you
You take hold of my hand
Yeah I can hear them...

But what if I'm a mermaid, in these jeans of yours
With her name still on it
Hey but I don't care 'cause
Sometimes, I said sometimes
I hear my voice
I hear my voice
I hear my voice and it's been here
Silent all these years

I've been here
Silent all these years
Silent
All these
Silent all these years
