    Lyrics

    Excuse me but can I be you for awhile,
    My dog won't bite if you sit real still,
    I got the anti-Christ in the kitchen yellin' at me again
    Yeah I can hear that
    Been saved again by the garbage truck
    I got something to say you know but nothing comes
    Yes I know what you think of me you never shut up
    Yeah I can hear that

    But what if I'm a mermaid, in these jeans of his
    With her name still on it
    Hey but I don't care 'cause
    Sometimes, I said sometimes
    I hear my voice and it's been here
    Silent all these years

    So you found a girl who thinks really deep thoughts
    What's so amazing about really deep thoughts
    Boy you best pray that I bleed real soon
    How's that thought for you
    My scream got lost in a paper cup
    I think there's a heaven once the screams have gone
    I got 25 bucks and a cracker do you think it's enough
    To get us there 'cause...

    What if I'm a mermaid in these jeans of his
    With her name still on it
    Hey but I don't care 'cause
    Sometimes, I said sometimes
    I hear my voice and it's been here
    Silent all these -

    Years go by, will I still be waiting
    For somebody else to understand
    Years go by if I'm stripped of my beauty
    And the orange clouds raining in my hand
    Years go by, will I choke on my tears
    'Til finally there is nothing left
    One more casualty you know
    We're too easy easy easy...

    Well I love the way we communicate
    Your eyes focus on my funny lip shape
    Let's hear what you think of me now
    And baby don't look up, the sky is falling
    Your mother shows up in a nasty dress
    It's your turn now to stand where I stand
    Everybody lookin' at you
    You take hold of my hand
    Yeah I can hear them...

    But what if I'm a mermaid, in these jeans of yours
    With her name still on it
    Hey but I don't care 'cause
    Sometimes, I said sometimes
    I hear my voice
    I hear my voice
    I hear my voice and it's been here
    Silent all these years

    I've been here
    Silent all these years
    Silent
    All these
    Silent all these years
    Thanks to laurake the sexy one and Jenny S for the contribution to this song.

      This song is not about her eating disorder, I don't even know if she had one... But this song is about being no longer silent about the rape that happend to her in '80s / '90s.
      I absolutely love this song!!

      Another one of Tori's best songs, and my personal favorite.

      It's so simple, yet it says so much. A beautiful song. I'll love it forever.

      there is a version of the song with leonard cohen when he recites a poem at the beginning, something like: "I heard of a man who says words so beautifully..." Does anyone know where I can find the exact lyrics of it??
