Rattlesnakes - Tori Amos

(Clark/Cole)
Lloyd Cole & The Commotions - from ?Rattlesnakes? (1984)

Jodie wears a hat although it hasn?t rained for six days

she says a girl needs a gun these days

hey on account of all the rattlesnakes

she looks like Eve Marie Saint in on the waterfront

she reads Simone de Beauvoir in her American circumstance

she?s less than sure if her heart has come to stay in San Jose

and her neverborn child still haunts her

as she speeds down the freeway

as she tries her luck with the traffic police

out of boredom more than spite

she never finds no trouble, she tries too hard

she?s obvious despite herself

she looks like Eve Marie Saint in on the waterfront

she says all she needs is therapy yeah

all you need is, love is all you need

Jodie never sleeps ?cause there are always needles in the hay

she says that a girl needs a gun these days

hey on account of all the rattlesnakes

she looks like Eve Marie Saint in on the waterfront

as she reads Simone de Beauvoir in her American circumstance

her heart, heart?s like crazy paving

upside down and back to front

she says ooh, it?s so hard to love

when love was your great disappointment
