Tori Amos – Martha's Foolish Ginger lyrics

Take a walk down memory lane with me
Past a watermelon stand on the way
Thinking I had everything we'd need
On Martha's Foolish Ginger
You were late
How could I forget what you said-
The part about that
"Love taking over your life"
Was not your plan

If those harbour lights had just been a half a mile inland
Who knows what I would have done
If those harbour lights had just been a half a mile inland
Who knows what I would have done

Through the cliffs
Out of the Bay I went
From the starboard side
I could black my visions and my passions-
They keep me awake

If those harbour lights had just been a half a mile inland
Who knows what I would have done
If those harbour lights had just been a half a mile inland
Who knows what I would have done

A familiar voice
"Hi. Surprise.
I've been searching trying to find you"
I couldn't speak
My hands reached for Martha's Foolish Ginger
We talked until the moon came up
About how life without love
Isn't worth very much
Then I played this song

If those harbour lights had just been a half a mile inland
Who knows what I would have done
If those harbour lights had just been a half a mile inland
Who knows what I would have done
What I would have done
What I would have done

"Memories that we have yet" you said
"To make like our Burning Bed..."
Love, don't mistake that it wasn't safe
On Martha's Foolish Ginger.
