Yes, Anastasia

Album: Under The Pink (1994)
  • I know what you want the magpies have come

    If you know me so well then tell me which hand I use

    Make them go
    Make it go

    Saw her there in a restaurant
    Poppy don't go
    I know your mother is a good one
    But Poppy don't go
    I'll take you home

    Show me the things I've been missin'
    Show me the ways I forgot to be speaking
    Show me the ways to get back to the garden
    Show me the ways to get around the get around
    Show me the ways to button up
    Buttons that have forgotten they're buttons
    Well we can't have that
    Forgetting that

    Girls girls what have we done
    What have we done to ourselves, yes

    Driving on the vine
    Over clothes lines
    But officer I saw the sign

    Thought I'd been through this in 1919
    Counting the tears of ten thousand men
    And gathered them all
    But my feet are slipping

    There's something we left on the window sill
    There's something we left yes

    We'll see how brave you are
    We'll see how fast you'll be running
    We'll see how brave you are
    Yes, Anastasia

    And all your dollies have friends

    Thought she deserved no less than she'd give
    Well happy birthday
    Her blood's on my hands
    It's kind of a shame cause I did like that dress
    It's funny the things that you find in the rain
    The things that you find
    In the mall and in the date mines
    In the knots still in her hair
    On the bus I'm on my way down
    On my way down
    All the girls seem to be there

    We'll see how brave you are
    We'll see how fast you'll be running
    We'll see how brave you are
    We'll see

    We'll see how brave you are
    Oh yes, we'll see how fast you'll be running
    We'll see how brave you are
    Yes, Anastasia

    Come along now little darlin'
    Come along now with me
    Come along now little darlin'
    We'll see how brave you are Writer/s: TORI ELLEN AMOS
