There are few song writers that give us such a clear and beautiful perspective of the human soul than Tori Amos. The song “Crucify” makes me quiver every time I hear it.

An excerpt from “Crucify” by Tori Amos

Got a kick for a dog
Beggin’ for Love
I gotta have my suffering
So that I can have my cross
I know a cat named Easter
He says will you ever learn
You’re just an empty cage girl
If you kill the bird
I’ve been looking for a savior in these dirty streets
looking for a savior beneath these dirty sheets
I’ve been raising up my hands
Drive another nail in
Got enough guilt to start
my own religion
Please be
Save me
I cry

What song lyrics move you?
