roosterspur bridge lyrics – tori amos

somewhere down past roosterspur bridge
perhaps just a trick of the light
i thought i heard the sweetest guitar
was it a rock and roll jesus

sometimes i think
i think i understand
the fear in the boy
the fire in the man
sometimes i watch
the wonder in your eyes
that and you leaving
i have memorized
that and you leaving
i have memorized

drove all night through sliding rock falls
thinking i’d find something that we’d lost
can’t remember when you stopped laughing
or when i stopped wanting to win

sometimes i think
i think i understand
the fear in the boy
the fire in the man
sometimes i watch
the wonder in your eyes
that and you leaving

i have memorized
do you even see me now
do you think of us still
do i always read things in
before a day’s deliverance
on roosterspur bridge

sometimes i think
i think i understand
the fear in the boy
the fire in the man
sometimes i watch
the wonder in your eyes
that and you leaving
i have memorized
that and you leaving
that and you leaving
i have memorized
