Liquid Diamonds von Tori Amos

"Liquid Diamonds"

Surrender then start you engines
You'll know quite soon what my mistake
For those on horseback or dog sled
You turn at the bend in the road
I hear she still grants forgivenesss
Although I willingly forgot her
The offering is molasses and you say
I guess I'm an underwater thing so I
Guess I can't take it personally
I guess I'm an underwater thing I'm
Liquid running
There's a sea secret in me
It's plain to see it is rising
But I must be flowing liquid diamonds
Calling for my soul
At the corners of the world
I know she's playing poker with the rest of the stragglers
Calling for my soul at the corners of the world
I know she's playing power
And if your friends don't come back to you
And you know this is madness
A lilac mess in your prom dress
And you say
I guess I'm and underwater thing                            

Tori Amos hörte ich das erste Mal mit sechzehn. Es war der Song "Crucify ", der mich entdecken ließ, dass es nicht nur um die Musik ,sondern auch um den Text geht.
Bald las ich jeden Songtext, der mir in die Finger kam und begann selbst, zu schreiben.
" Liquid Diamonds " stammt vom Album " from the choirgirl hotel " ( 1998) und ist einer meiner treuesten Begleiter. Er beschreibt den Zustand von Einsamkeit und Unvollkommenheit sehr eindringlich.
