Tori Amos
A Sorta Fairytale
Original Translation of Slang

On my way up north
Up on the Ventura
I pulled back the hood
And I was talking to you
And I knew then it would be
A life long thing
But I didn't know that we
We could break a silver lining

CHORUS
And I'm so sad
Like a good book
I can't put this day back
A sorta fairytale
With you
A sorta fairytale
With you

 

 

On my way up north
Ventura Ventura Boulevard, a major road running along the north of Los Angeles
And I was talking to you
And I knew then it would be
A life long thing
But I didn't know that we
We could break a silver lining

CHORUS
And I'm so sad
Like a good book
I can't put this day back

sorta sort of
With you
A sorta fairytale
With you

 

Things you said that day
Up on the 101
The girl had come undone
I tried to downplay it
With a bet about us
You said that-
You'd take it
As long as I could
I could not erase it

CHORUS

And I ride along side
And I rode along side
You then
And I rode along side
Till you lost me there
In the open road
And I rode along side
Till the honey spread
Itself so thin

For me to break your bread
For me to take your word
I had to steal it

CHORUS

I could pick back up
Whenever I feel

Down New Mexico way
Something about
The open road
I knew that he was
Looking for some Indian blood and
Find a little in you find a little
In me we may be
On this road but
We're just
Impostors
In this country you know
So we go along and we said
We'd fake it
Feel better with
Oliver Stone
Till I
Almost smacked him -
Seemed right that night and
I don't know what
Takes hold
Out there in the
Desert cold
These guys think they must
Try and just get over on us

CHORUS

And I was riding by
Riding along side
For a while till you lost me
And I was riding by
Riding along till you lost me
Till you lost
Me in
The rear

I said

Way up north I took my day
All in all was a pretty nice
Day and I put the hood
Right back where
You could taste heaven
Perfectly
Feel out the summer breeze
Didn't know when we'd be back
And I, I don't
Didn't think
We'd end up like
Like this
