MUSIC: Tori Amos - Baker Baker (Lyrics)



Baker Baker
Music and Lyrics by Tori Amos

Baker, Baker,
Baking a cake—
Make me a day,
Make me whole again;
And I wonder,
What's in a day?
What's in your cake this time?

I guess you heard,
He's gone to L.A.—
He says that behind my eyes I'm hiding
And he tells me I pushed him away,
That my hearts been hard to find.

Here,
There must be something here;
There must be
Something here...
Here...

Baker, Baker,
Can you explain,
If truly his heart
Was made of icing,
And I wonder
How mine could taste—
Maybe we could change his mind?

I know you're late
For your next parade;
You came to make sure
That I'm not running,
Well, I've run from him
In all kinds of ways...
Guess it was his turn this time.

Time—
Thought I'd make friends with Time,
Thought we'd be
Flying...
Maybe not this time.

Baker, Baker,
Baking a cake—
Make me a day,
Make me whole again;
And I wonder
If he's okay...
If you see him, say
Hi.
