Music Monday: Virginia

Here is another song from the playlist for my novel Riding the Blind. One of the major characters in my story is named Virginia, and this Tori Amos song really embodies some of her spirit.I’ve seen Amos perform two times and it was a very powerful experience. There is an energy to her playing and singing that is really something to behold live. It feels like she was born for the stage.

…a life giving river —
her body open as will his hand
and with a “goodbye” there she goes

she may betray all that she loves
and even wait for their savior to come
and in some things, maybe he’ll be right
but as always the thing that he loves
he will change from her sunrise to clockwise to soul trading
still she’ll lay down her body
covering him all the same…
