TORI AMOS lyrics - Flicker

TORI AMOS
"Flicker"

Flicker, yes flicker
There it is, a little less faint
A little more of your flame
Feel it warm your skin
Part of you trapped within

[Pre-Chorus:]
Shed a little light on this
Help me see
Shed a little light on this
Underneath the scarring from his defiling
Underneath the pain

[Chorus:]
Heroines
They are not born, they are made
A phoenix forms, her ashes rise
Expose their hell
Break Satan's spell
Fire purifies
It's redemption time

Flicker, yes, flicker
When neighbours and friends
Only give you their burning silence
Even with torches raised
Part of you can't feel safe

[Pre-Chorus:]
Shed a little light on this
Help me see
Shed a little light on this, please
Shed a little light on this
And on those who excuse this act of violence
Choosing you to play

[Chorus:]
Heroines
They are not born, they are made
A phoenix forms, her ashes rise
Expose their hell
Break Satan's spell
Fire purifies
It's redemption time

Shed a little light on this
Shed a little light on this
