  • God sometimes you just don't come through
    God sometimes you just don't come through
    Do you need a woman to look after you
    God sometimes you just don't come through

    You make pretty daisies pretty daisies love
    I gotta find what you're doing about things here
    A few witches burning gets a little toasty here
    I gotta find why you always go when the wind blows
    Tell me you're crazy maybe then I'll understand
    You got your nine iron in the back seat just in case
    Heard you've gone south well babe you love your new four wheel
    I gotta find why you always go when the wind blows

    (Give not thy strength unto women nor thy ways to that which destroyeth kings)

    Will you even tell her if you decide to make the sky fall
    Will you even tell her if you decide to make the sky

    God sometimes you just don't come through
    God sometimes you just don't come through
    Do you need a woman to look after you
    God sometimes you just don't come through Writer/s: TORI AMOS
