Anyone wondering
where I got the name of my Blog?

It is a lyric in fact, taken from a Tori Amos song
(yup her again..guess I can't help it, I've never been moved quite so much by an artist before or since discovering her in '97)


Doughnut Song
(Click to hear, this is a WMA file hosted by a friend, please have a listen..)

is from her 3rd solo album Boys for Pele (my favorite) and evolved from a very difficult breakup from her long time boyfriend Eric. She has a way of transfering her emotions to us through lyrical genius.
Thanks to the amazing Audrey at www.hereinmyhead.com
here are the lyrics:

had me a trick and a kick and your message
well you'll never gain weight from a doughnut hole
then thought that i could decipher your message
there's no one here dear
no one at all
and if i'm wasting all your time
this time
maybe you never learned to take
and if i'm hanging on to your shade
i guess i'm way beyond the pale
and southern men can grow gold
can grow pertty
blood can be pertty
like a delicate man
copper to steel
to a hinge that is faltered
that let's you in
let's you in
let's you in
something's just keeping you numb
you told me last night
you were a sun now
with your very own
devoted satellite
happy for you
and i am sure that i hate you
too sons too many
too many able fires
and if i'm wasting all your time
this time
i think you never learned to take
and if i'm hanging on to your shade
i guess i'm way beyond the pale

If you guys don't know who she is, please pick up one of her albums, the last two, Scarlet's Walk (2002) and The Beekeeper (2005) are truly amazing.
