Someone’s knockin on my kitchen door,
leave the wood outside,
what.
All the girls here are freezing cold.
Leave me with your Borneo,
I said.

I don’t need much to keep me warm

Don’t stop now what you’re doin,
what you’re doin my ugly one.
Bring them all here.
Hard to hide,
a hundred girls in your hair.
It won’t be fair if I hate her,
if I ate her.

You can go now,
you can go now.

You’re already in there,
I’ll be wearing your tatoo,
yes,
you’re already in there.

Got a cloud sleeping on my tongue,
he goes,
then it goes,
And, kiss the violets,
as they’re waking up.

Leave me with your Borneo,
I said,
leave me the way I was before.

But,
you’re already in there,
I’ll be wearing your tatoo,
Yes,
I’m already in.

Circles and circles and circles again,
the girl’s in,
circles and circles and circles again,
the girl’s in,
circles and circles and circles again,
the girl’s in,
circles and circles and circles again,
the girl’s in,
well.

Someone’s knockin on my kitchen door,
leave the wood outside.
What,
all the girls here are freezing cold.

You can go now,
you can go now,
you can go now,
you can go now.

You’re already in there,
i’ll be wearing your tatoo,
you’re already in there.

Thought I was over the bridge now,
over the bridget now,
I’m already in.

Circles and circles and circles again,
the girl’s in,
circles and circles,
got to stop spinning.
Circles and circles and circles again.

Circles and circles and circles again,
the girl’s in,
circles and circles,
got to stop spinning.
Circles and circles and circles again,
well.

  1. I really would love to know Toris reason for penning this beautiful track. I have my own take on it, that goes with my life, which s what I love most about her work. Theres a song for every mood, moment, happening, in your life:)

    1. So many of Tori’s songs are like that, for me. I know she has stories for her “girls”, but I have stories attached to them, as well. I agree, it is what I love so much about her work, as well.

      Nice to blog-meet you 🙂

      1. You, too! Love to encounter like-minded music lovers;-) Have you seen T live? With her birthday coming, 8-22, I may write a post of how much she means to me:)
