how can i let you touch me again
i'm like honey in your hands
just wanting to sweeten the falcon
but afraid bitterness has set in
how can i touch you again
how will i fit in your plans
and how can i wake in your arms
now that you've been with another woman again
how can i let you look at me again
i've always shied away from comparisons
your hidden charms, gold will soon tarnish
and uncover hallowness from within
how can i touch you again
how will i fit in your plans
and how can i wake in your arms
now that you've been with another woman again
i'm not the girl i dreamed i'd be
i swore that i would satisfy my man's needs
but is it i, "the queen", you used to call me that
i spared by giving you everything
how can i look at you
how can i trust you
how can i touch you again

    General CommentThis is a "lost song," written back in her very early music days, when she was known as Myra Ellen Amos / Ellen Amos.

    It's interesting how straightforward this song is, compared to her later songs, which feature multiple layers and meanings.

    I love that she revisits Honey and Sugar in her later songs, with richer results.

    Interesting that this song gets into body image and comparisons. Notice how she takes the blame for her man straying. :(
