Baker Baker

Baker Baker - Tori Amos - From the album Under the Pink - Tonight Show with Jay Leno - Feb 1994

i know you’re late for your next parade
you came to make sure that i’m not running
well i ran from him in all kinds of ways
guess it was his turn this time
thought i’d make friends with time
thought we’d be flying
maybe not this time
baker baker baking a cake
make me a day
make me whole again
and i wonder if he’s ok
if you see him say hi 

One story of many:

“There’s a stream that runs up in the Rockies and it runs into a bigger stream and finally makes its way to a river but never the ocean and I was thinking about being whole again and that you don’t have to make it to the ocean to be whole again. Maybe you freeze and become a snow witch or maybe a sandwich and melt away and that’s o.k. I think.”
– Tori; Under The Pink Songbook
