It was the first Tori Amos concert I’ve ever been to that I didn’t know all the songs.

That was weird.

Inevitably, though, there was one song she sang that I didn’t realize I needed to hear until the lyrics gave me goosebumps. “Winter” is a good song, but it probably wouldn’t be on my Top 20 list of Tori Favorites.

But it was these lines that chilled me to the bone:

“Years go by and I’m here still waiting
Withering where some snowman was
Mirror mirror where’s the crystal palace
But I only can see myself
Skating around the truth who I am
But I know dad the ice is getting thin…”

Funny, I’ve always thought it was “With a ring where some snowman was.” That makes more sense to me. As a girl named Truth, it makes a lot of sense, really. Especially woven into the fairy tale imagery.

Here’s a video of the song from the 12/5 show. (Man, I remember a time when hunting down $50 bootleg of a Tori show was an adventure…)
