Tori Amos – Sister Named Desire lyrics

Got a sister named Desire
They don't let you
Like those little boys
By their house
On the backyard swing
I know of it 'cause
I thought we told
Some little sweet stories
In the parking lot

They say that girl lost her sway
The say that girl lost her sway
That day

God I'd like to drag him
For a long way 'cause maybe I
Then I'd just cry a little tear
Near him to that sleepy safe place
And I'm gonna take him by myself
If I've got to go
Don't let you know
Let you know
Where she goes to with those
Me as I interfere

That girl lost her sway
They say that girl lost her sway
That day

Teach me about them old worlds big brother
And in an elevator
Where somebody can get out
With the sound

They say that girl lost her sway
Just watch it
Just watch it slip through my hands, boy
Watch it go
Oh, what you know
I guess
I see
Just see
'Cause she still can sway
