when I come to terms to terms with this
when I come to terms with this
when I come to terms to terms with this
my world will change for me

I haven\'t moved since the call came
since the call came I haven\'t moved
I stare at the wall knowing on the other side
the storm that waits for me

the Seated Woman with the Parasol
may be the only one you can\'t Betray
if I\'m the Seated Woman with the Parasol
I will be safe in my frame

I have no need for a sea view
for a sea view I have no need
I have my little pleasures
this wall being one of these

and the Seated Woman with the Parasol
may be the only one you can\'t Betray
if I\'m the Seated Woman with the Parasol
I will be safe in my frame

when I come to terms to terms with this
when I come to terms with this
when I come to terms with this whip lash
of Silk on wool embroidery

and the Seated Woman with the Parasol
may be the only one you can\'t betray
if I\'m the Seated Woman with the Parasol
I will be safe in my frame

and the Seated Woman with the Parasol
may be the only one you can\'t betray
if I\'m the Seated Woman with the Parasol
I will be safe in my frame
I will be safe in my frame
in your House
in your frame

    General Commenti think this song is about a modern woman in a relationship and has decided that it is time to leave the relationship for whatever reason and face the truth. The metaphor of the parasol is being an old fashioned lady almost a real woman something which is very different from modern times.

    "my world will change for me" means that change is coming and "I stare at the wall knowing on the other side, the storm that waits for me" that she knows what she's about to do is going to create 'a storm' with the relationship. she knows what's gonna happen.

    the chorus:
    the Seated Woman with the Parasol
    may be the only one you can't Betray
    if I'm the Seated Woman with the Parasol
    I will be safe in my frame

    i think this talks about being an old fashioned woman with a parasol - the parasol doubling for protection. when she talks about betrayl i think she means herself - she can't betray the real woman inside of every woman. I also think that the "frame" would be her dress and clothing with petticoats and corsets - the dress holds her up and protects her for whatever is to come

    :)

    this is one of my favourite TORI AMOS songs! i
