Tori Amos – Flicker lyrics

[Verse 1]
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

[Verse 2]
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

[Outro]
Shed a little light on this
Shed a little light on this
