Tori Amos - Wedding Day Lyrics




The deafening sound of silence
Silence the siren between us

Now I drink back the past
Back to our wedding day
We'd hang onto every
Word the other would say

Blanket on bluebell knoll
Under a starry night holding us close
As jupiter winked at the earth
On that our wedding day

I run back to your arms again
Back there safe in your arms again

Your thoughts safely were shared
My secrets to you I gave
I swore angels were born
You said heaven can be made

Above us on bluebell knoll
The laughing seven maids chased by the bull
As Virgo she danced through the dawn
On that our wedding day

The deafening sound of silence
Silence the siren between us

I run back to your arms again
Back there safe in your arms again

Now I take off the mask
That hides all this from your gaze
As you sleep I pretend you dream
Of our wedding day

  3. meanwhile in wonderland

    The deafening sound of silence
    Silence the siren between us

    Now I drink back the past
    Back to our wedding day
    We'd hang onto every
    Word the other would say

    Blanket on bluebell knoll
    Under a starry night holding us close
    As jupiter winked at the earth
    On that our wedding day

    I run back to your arms again
    Back there safe in your arms again

    Your thoughts safely were shared
    My secrets to you I gave
    I swore angels were born
    You said heaven can be made

    Above us on bluebell knoll
    The laughing seven maids chased by the bull
    As Virgo she danced through the dawn
    On that our wedding day

    The deafening sound of silence
    Silence the siren between us

    I run back to your arms again
    Back there safe in your arms again

    Now I take off the mask
    That hides all this from your gaze
    As you sleep I pretend you dream
    Of our wedding day

  7. Donna Swindells

    An amazing, emotional song that make you relive the emotions you shared with your lover/husband as you began your journey. Love this one! Blessings.

    Tommaso Silvestro

    You clearly didn't get the meaning of the song. She is singing about a lonely and depressed woman stuck in a marriage where all passion and communication died (the defeaning sound of silence silence the siren between us + the last 4 lines of the lyrics) and she is getting drunk reminiscing her wedding day when all was new and the both of them were in love. There is nothing positive about this song, apart from the music.

    @Tommaso Silvestro It's not really like that. This song is about finding back the thread of a drowned marriage. There have been troubles, of course, but she's "running back to his arms again". She reminds him and herself that there was a deep reason behind thier decision to get together, they have been married by the stars themselves. 

    Tommaso Silvestro

    "Now I take off the mask that hides all this from your gaze. As you sleep I pretend you dream of our wedding day." If it was the way you say, she wouldn't have closed the song with these lines. Her marriage is stranded and - with those final lines - she states it clearly enough. When she sings "I run back to your arms again" is when she is reminiscing. Nothing to do with being married by the stars. 

    QfwfQ

    Well, being married by the stars is a fact: virgo rising, the seven maids (pleiads) chased by the bull (taurus). Personally, I don't see this song as tragically as you do. Taking off the mask and coming clean doesn't necessarily mean proclaiming the wedding over, but I guess this is left to each listener. That's what she said about WD: "Wedding Day is, I guess, a reflection of a time when things were really magical between this couple, and so, making sure that the track was holding an arrangement space for her to look back, as well as to be in the present. And in the present, there’s a very obvious mistress between them, and the mistress is silence, and she’s the siren that is between this couple. So in order to express that, tell that story, and then to burst into what that wedding day was like those years ago, that was really part of our fun. We had a lot of fun developing that. So there was a lot of playing back and forth – jumping from the Rhodes, the electric keyboards, to the Mellotron flutes, to the Bosendorfer, as well as the electric and acoustics. And then a certain type of percussion was demanded, because we wanted, there was a mixture – we have certain Native American drums, certain Celtic drums, but more of a non-Christian type of celebration, because it felt as if we wanted to go further than that, almost an ancient marriage that wasn’t about religions but before that. So that was all part of the development of the piece."
