"Peeping Tommi" as written by and Tori Ellen Amos....
Looking past branches
Past fresh mown grass
Dirt licking my elbows
I watch his hand move
Up up up her dress
Don't run away from me now
Don't run away from me now

She's down on the ground
She gives the boy smile
I think of you I think of that
Man all the while
You see my dreams
Are filled with him
His face shows up on on
In my favorite Danish
Don't run away from me now
Don't run away from me now

She's willing
Just breathe
Willing one day Iâ??ll be

Sail through my ears
I heard you fine the first time
'Time to let it go'
Time to give my gun a nice
Surprise surprise

Willing. Just breathe
Willing. Peeping Tommi

    General CommentI think that Tori meant the song to be about how she can't get over the rape when she has sex and the guy she is with doesn't understand. So when she has sex maybe it is like she is watching the guy and someone else having sex.

    To me though it is about watching a boy that you are obsessed with having sex with a different girl, and when you sleep with other guys you just keep thinking about him and seeing him in yr food. The guy that loves her is saying "you need to get over him" but she can't. The part about giving her gun a surprise is about shooting them.
