Tanita Tikaram – Twist In My Sobriety Lyrics 7 years ago
I always thought "sobriety" is not just about alcohol but about being sensible and making the best choices for herself; and the "twist" is deviating from that path.

So perhaps she normally makes logical choices, but she's looking back at a time she did something she wouldn't normally do. Perhaps she's talking to someone who was very close to her once but isn't now, and wants them to know that now she looks back at them, with detached curiosity, as a small reminder of a time when she did something unusual.

But that's just the chorus! And nokturnelle's thoughts about the religious imagery means I'm sure there's more to it than that.

The music is wonderful - particularly the insistent notes in the chorus - is it a clarinet?
