1000 Oceans

These tears I've cried
I've cried 1000 oceans
And if it seems I'm floating
In the darkness
Well I can't believe that I would keep
Keep you from flying
And I would cry 1000 more if that's
What it takes to sail you home
Sail you home sail you home

I'm aware what the rules are
But you know that I will run
You know that I will follow you

Over Silbury hill
Through the solar field
You know that I wil follow you

And if I find you
Will you still remember
Playing at trains
Or does this little blue ball
Just fade away

Over Silbury hill through the solar field
You know that I will follow you
I'm aware what the rules are
But you know that I will run
You know that I will follow you

These tears I've cried
I've cried 1000 oceans
And if I'm floatingIn the darkness
Well I can't believe that I would keep
Keep you from flying
And I will cry 1000 more if that's
What it takes to sail you home

---Tori Amos
