Here are some of my favorite lines from Tori's songs

How do you keep the romance there when a little French maid lives downstairs

-Fayth, "Y Kant Tori Read"

You're just an empty cage girl if you kill the bird

-Crucify, "Little Earthquakes"

I don't believe you're leaving cause me and Charles Manson like the same ice cream

-Tear In Your Hand "Little Earthquakes"

I've found the secret to life... I'm OK when everything is not OK

-Upside Down, "Silent All These Years" single

This house is like Russia, with eyes cold and grey, you got me moving in a circle, I dyed my hair red today

-Take To The Sky, "Winter" single

A few witches burning, gets a little toasty here

-God, "Under The Pink"

Bells and footfalls and soldiers and dolls, brothers and lovers she and I were, now she seems to be sand under his shoes

-Bells For Her, "Under The Pink"

They musta paid her a nice price, she's puttin on her string bean love

-Cornflake Girl, "Under The Pink"

Father says bow your head like the Good Book says, well I think the Good Book is missing some pages

-Icicle, "Under The Pink"

I keep getting this story twisted, so where's Neil when you need him

-Space Dog, "Under The Pink"

If you know me so well then tell which hand I use... Well happy birthday, her blood's on my hands, it's kind of a shame, cause I did like that dress

-Yes, Anastasia, "Under The Pink"

But will you find me if Neil makes me a tree

-Horses, "Boys For Pele"

Caught a lite sneeze, dreamed a little dream, made my own pretty hate machine

-Caught A Lite Sneeze, "Boys For Pele"

And on that fateful day, when she was crucified, she wore Shiseido Red

-Muhammed My Friend, "Boys For Pele"

Father only you can save my soul, and playing that organ must count for something

-Little Amsterdam, "Boys For Pele"

I got my rape hat on, honey but I always could accessorise

-Talula, "Boys For Pele"

Standin on a corner in Winslow, Arizona and I'm quite sure I'm in the wrong song

-In The Springtime Of His Voodoo, "Boys For Pele"
