Testo Time – Tori Amos

Testo della canzone Time di Tori Amos
Album: Strange Little Girls
Tom Waits – from “Rain Dogs (1985)

Well, the smart money´s on Harlow

And the moon is in the street

The shadow boys are breaking all the laws

And you´re east of East St. Louis

And the wind is making speeches

And the rain sounds like a round of applause

Napoleon is weeping in the Carnival saloon

His invisible fiance is in the mirror

The band is going home

It´s raining hammers, it´s raining nails

Yes, it´s true, there´s nothing left for him down here


And it´s Time Time Time

And it´s Time Time Time

And it´s Time Time Time

That you love

And it´s Time Time Time

And they all pretend they´re Orphans

And their memory´s like a train

You can see it getting smaller as it pulls away

And the things you can´t remember

Tell the things you can´t forget that

History puts a saint in every dream

Well she said she´d stick around

Until the bandages came off

But these mamas boys just don´t know when to quit

And Matilda asks the sailors are those dreams

Or are those prayers

So just close your eyes, son

And this won´t hurt a bit


Well, things are pretty lousy for a calendar girl

The boys just dive right off the cars

And splash into the streets

And when she´s on a roll she pulls a razor

From her boot and a thousand

Pigeons fall around her feet

So put a candle in the window

And a kiss upon his lips

Till the dish outside the window fills with rain

Just like a stranger with the weeds in your heart

And pay the fiddler off till I come back again
