"Black Swan" as written by and Tori Ellen Amos....
Ride on, ride on friends of the black swan
Ride on, ride on do you know where she's gone
Gumdrops and Saturdays did Eric call by the way
He knew, he knew, and he knew where the pillow goes

Ride on, ride on friends of the black swan
Ride on, ride on do you know where she's gone
Buttercups and fishing flies the biggest thickest ever sky
I know they know something
I know

Ride on, ride on now friends of the black swan
Ride on, ride on you know where she's gone

Little green men do O.K.
It's the fairies' revenge they say
And gumdrops and Saturdays did Eric call by the way

Ride on, ride on, ride on

    General CommentI've always loved the lyrics to this song, and the melody is beautiful! I have this song on sheet music and I enjoy playing it on the piano! I just wish that it was available on cd!

    General CommentThis song has always reminded me of her going to a place of letting go and feeling meloncholic about it. Saying farwell and thinking about Eric , having some space from him and wishing he would call, . I have always wondered if these charactors that she mentions are parts of herself or maybe experiances that she thinks of as charactors, experiancesthat she has had with Eric. I love this song sometimes I sing it in the car during quiet moments.

    I'm just grateful how she makes it easy for us: translating philosophical concepts to the personal language of the heart. We're practically spoiled.
