TORI AMOS lyrics - Take To The Sky (Russia)

TORI AMOS
"Take To The Sky (Russia)"

This house is like Russia
With eyes cold and grey
You've got me moving in a circle
I dyed my hair red today

I just want a little passion
To hold me in the dark
I know I've got some magic
Buried, buried deep in my heart, yeah

But my priest says, "You ain't saving no souls."
My father says, "You ain't making any money."
My doctor says, "You just took it to the limit."
And here I stand, with this sword in my hand

You can say it one more time
What you don't like
Let me hear it one more time
Then have a seat while I take to the sky
Take to the sky

My heart is like the ocean
It gets in the way
So close to touching freedom
Then I hear the guards call my name

And my priest says, "You ain't saving no souls."
My father says, "You ain't making any money."
My doctor says, "You just took it to the limit."
And here I stand, with this sword in my hand

You can say it one more time
What you don't like
Let me hear it one more time
Then have a seat while I take to the sky
Take to the sky

[Voice 1:]
If you don't like me just a little, well, why do you hang around
If you don't like me just a little, well, why do you hang around
If you don't like me just a little, well, why do you take it, take it, take it, take it, take it

[Voice 2:]
There she, there she, there she goes again, wearing those purple panties
There she, there she, there she goes again, wearing her heart
There she, there she, there she goes again, why do you take it

This house is like Russia

You can say it one more time
You can say it one more time
You can say it one more time
What you don't like
Let me hear it one more time
Then have a seat while I take to the sky

Take to the sky
Take to the sky
Take to the sky
Take to the sky
