TORI AMOS lyrics - Bats

TORI AMOS
"Bats"

If you see three candles in the window
Been expecting you undine of the sea
The kindly ones are here with me
Undine of the sea keep breathing girl

Got a bat visiting
On a break from teaching
At William and Mary
You've asked his expertise
About the deal the ancient
Sea maids made with humanity

Warning "the most precious thing
That we'll fight to save
The fate of our waves
With her blue satin crashing”

If you see three candles in the window
Been expecting you undine of the sea
The kindly ones are here with me
Undine of the sea keep breathing girl

You say the bats are wise
And once had prophesied
What fate... If betrayed
By human kind

Yes dripped in mist sisters rise
Quietly from the fens and marshes
All for the love of our dearest friend
It now begins

If you see three candles in the window
Been expecting you Undine of the Sea
The Kindly Ones are here with me
Undine of the Sea
The Kindly Ones are here with me
Undine of the Sea
Undine of the Sea
Undine of the Sea
Are here with me
