Leather

by Tori Amos.

We share the same name. Could that be the reason I love some of her songs so much?

This song is one of my favorites. Here it's performed live in 1997, five years after it was released in Amos's debut solo album "Little Earthquakes". If you prefer the original version, or if you never heard it before, go and listen to it here. Below the videos you can find the lyrics.

As a bonus - "Crucify", probably Amos's most popular song, also from the debut album "Little Earthquakes" (and BTW - that album has more great songs. You should listen to it all). If you like this song too, you should also check out this version.





Look I'm standing naked before you,
Don't you want more than my sex?
I can scream as loud as your last one
But I can't claim innocence

Oh God could it be the weather
Oh God why am I here?
If love isn't forever
And its not the weather
Hand me my leather

I could just pretend that you love me,
The night would lose all sense of fear
But why do I need you to love me
When you cant hold what I hold dear?

Oh God could it be the weather,
Oh God why am I here?
If love isn't forever
And its not the weather
Hand me my leather

I almost ran over an angel,
He had a nice big fat cigar
in a sense he said you're alone here
So if you jump you best jump far

Oh God could it be the weather
Oh God why am I here?
If love isn't forever
And its not the weather

Oh God could it be the weather
Oh God it's all very clear
If love isn't forever
And its not the weather
Hand me my leather

Hey Mos,

I've been listening to three Tori Amos songs non-stop recently, and they are so great.

Playboy Mommy
Northern Lad
She's your Cocaine
