"Bells For Her" as written by and Tori Amos....
And through the life force and there goes her friend
On her Nishiki it's out of time
And through the portal they can make amends

Hey would you say whatever we're blanket friends
Can't stop what's coming
Can't stop what's on its way

And through the walls they made their mudpies
I've got your mind I said
She said I've your voice
I said you don't need my voice girl
You have your own
But you never thought it was enough of
So they went years and years
Like sisters blanket girls
Always there through that and this
There's nothing we cannot ever fix I said

Can't stop what's coming
Can't stop what's on its way
Can't stop what's coming
Can't stop what's on its way

Bells and footfalls and soldiers and dolls
Brothers and lovers she and I were
Now she seems to be sand under his shoes
There's nothing I can do
Can't stop what's coming
Can't stop what's on its way
Can't stop what's coming
Can't stop what's on its way

And now I speak to you are you in there
You have her face and her eyes
But you are not her
And we go at each other like blank ettes
Who can't find their thread and their bare

Can't stop loving you
Can't stop loving
Can't stop what is on its way
And I see it coming
And it's on its way

    General CommentI can't help shake the feeling of childhood friendship ruined by romance and/or sexual experimentation.

    It's pretty explicit that they've grown apart but "brothers and lovers she and I were," and "like sisters blanket girls," seem to imply that they were more than just close friends at some point, maybe this lead to them drifting apart. "but you never thought it was enough of" seems to be a half finished thought, letting trail off what the other party didn't think there was enough of.
