"For Mark" as written by and Tori Amos....
she needs to sleep like the ocean
she needs to dream
that boy down in Streatham don't know where he's about
but i'm sure he knows one-armed sports
i need to be in this body
i need to breathe
i need know
need but one
and it's gonna be here like it never was
like it never was
he's got pearls on his fingers
little doe eyes
making ringers ring off the phone
tell her you know
what she's been thinking
cause i need only one
only one sugar plum, i said
you are gonna see
i'm ready to be
just with the one
with the blue, blue notions emotions

    General CommentUm, wouldn't this be about her husband "Mark" Hawley and how she is ready to settle with just one man as long as she can have room to "breathe" and be an individual as well? Seems pretty obvious to me.
