Winter by Tori Amos



In honor of winter and snow and the chill in the air, I am posting a song that makes me nostalgic for when I was younger.  The song is Winter by Tori Amos.  I love Tori.  I really related to her as a teenager - and that's where my blog title came from (as well as my email address) for those of you that don't.


Enjoy


"Snow can wait

I forgot my mittens

Wipe my nose

Get my new boots on

I get a little warm in my heart

When I think of winter

I put my hand in my father's glove

I run off

Where the drifts get deeper

Sleeping beauty trips me with a frown

I hear a voice

"Your must learn to stand up for yourself

Cause I can't always be around"

He says

When you gonna make up your mind

When you gonna love you as much as I do

When you gonna make up your mind

Cause things are gonna change so fast

All the white horses are still in bed

I tell you that I'll always want you near

You say that things change my dear



Boys get discovered as winter melts

Flowers competing for the sun

Years go by and I'm here still waiting Withering where some snowman was

Mirror mirror where's the crystal palace

But I only can see the myself

Skating around the truth who I am

But I know dad the ice is getting thin



When you gonna make up your mind

When you gonna love you as much as I do

When you gonna make up your mind

Cause things are gonna change so fast

All the white horses are still in bed

I tell you that I'll always want you near

You say that things change my dear



Hair is grey

And the fires are burning

So many dreams

On the shelf

You say I wanted you to be proud of me

I always wanted that myself

 
He says

When you gonna make up your mind

When you gonna love you as much as I do

When you gonna make up your mind

Cause things are gonna change so fast

All the white horses have gone ahead

I tell you that I'll always want you near

You say that things change

My dear"

This song really gets me in the mood for this time of year. It's just perfect for the season (and it always has me longing for snow). Thanks for sharing it!

I love the relationship between father and daughter in this song. It's such a beautiful song. My cousin used it for the father daughter dance in her wedding.
