Tori Amos - Putting The Damage On Lyrics




Glue
Stuck to my shoes
Does anyone konw why you play with an orange rind
You say you packed my things
And divided what was mine you're off to the mountain top
I say her skinny legs could use sun
But now I'm wishing
For my best impression
Of my best Angie Dickinson
But now I've got to worry
Cause boy you still look pretty
When you're putt the damage on

Don't make me scratch on you door
I never left you
For a banjo
I only just turned around for a poodle
And a corvette
And my impression
of my best Angie Dickinson
But now I've got to worry
Cause boy you still look pretty
When you're putting the damage on

I'm trying not to move
It's just you ghost
Passing through
I said
I'm trying not to move
It's just your ghost passing through
It's just your ghost
Passing through
And now
I'm quite sure
There's a light in you platoon
I never seen a light move
LIke yours
Can do to Me
So now I'm wishing
For my best impression
of my best Angie Dickinson
But now I've got to worry
Cause boy you still look pretty
To me
But I've got a place to go
I've got a ticket to your late show
And now I'm worrying cause even still
You sure are pretty
When you're putting the damage on
Yes
When you're putting the damage on
You're just so pretty
When you're putting the damage on

Tori Amos Putting The Damage On Comments
  1. Shannon tori

    only one thing good from my abusive childhood was my step father introducing me to his c.d collection i remember listening to her first 3 albums and the songs the lyrics healing some parts of me , believing thru my ears that heaven does exist.
    The day when my mum picked him over me after him subjecting me to another uncalled beating when i was 14 years old to the streets with his tori amos c.d's and c.d player was in my coat pocket tori amos was part of my new journey.
    I often read comments of people's love of tori and stories and just wanted to add mine.
    Thank you tori for helping me walk away that night , thank you tori for helping me sleep at night listening to your soothing and beautiful voice. Thank you tori for the being the soundtrack to my days ahead

  2. Ellie McKenzie

  3. Konkle Konkle

    I love her so much after all this time, Been listening to her for 24 years

  4. Rachael

    One of my favorite tori songs

  5. thomas barn

    My friends in high school (2005) thought I was weird for listening to this as a guy. It just moved me for some reason. Boys for Pele, Under The Pink, Little Earthquakes are all masterpieces but Boys for Pele is my favorite.

    This just so perfectly describes the last moments with someone you loved beyond anything and they still walk away. You want to make sure you leave a good impression, keep your pride. Don’t cry. Be fine. It’s like being in that moment all over again every time I hear it.

    I adore this era of Tori and didnt know what to think when she put it out and its became a best friend

    wildmercuryfilms

    Why didn’t you know what to think?

  17. Serene Chaos UK

    Brilliant song, best on the album, the perfect climatic ending to the greatest album of the 90s !

    wildmercuryfilms

    I love this album, too, very much. I got the CD in ‘96 when it was released. But best album of the ‘90’s? Candidates would be: OK COMPUTER; RID OF ME; CROOKED RAIN, CROOKED RAIN; SIAMESE DREAM; AUTOMATIC FOR THE PEOPLE; NEVERMIND; VS; TIME OUT OF MIND; UNDER THE PINK; THE SOFT BULLETIN; FEAR OF A BLACK PLANET; THE MISEDUCATION OF LAURYN HILL; THE CHRONIC; ILL COMMUNICATION; IN THE AEROPLANE OVER THE SEA; 36 CHAMBERS; ILLMATIC.

    Anony Mouse

    wildmercuryfilms it’s called subjective taste and it’s, well, subjective.

  18. Tammy H

    You're off to the mountaintop...maybe someday I will meet you there.

  19. Wsesrdyfuguh Wsefrgth

    They really want a $600 cell phone to put damage at my phone because of this damn shame they don’t pay nothing I don’t even have $10 to my name these people aren’t worth anything anymore

    Wsesrdyfuguh Wsefrgth

    The free world is slavery

    Wsesrdyfuguh Wsefrgth

    They are “new owners”

    tori amos ????

  20. Charlotte Webster

    Remember first buying Pele as a 16 or 17yr old and going "Eh?" cos it just seemed so disjointed and didn't rest easy on the ears with the harpsichord jumping in and out and the brass and I had to play it through a few times without actually listening too hard and see if it grew on me.

    Still not massively taken with the harpsichord but the use of brass is absolutely beautiful and still has such a searing effect at 4:07 with "Boy you still look pretty to me but I gotta place to go"

    Stunning.

  21. MeloLand

    Wonderful voice!

  22. Kevin Brown

    Tori Amos my piano goddess 😘💜
