jamaica inn lyrics – tori amos

can you patch my jeans peggy ann –
just a little st*tch to mend the hole
he has torn
if you can

maybe i got too set in my ways
he says she reminds him of me
when we first met
in those early days…

the s*xiest thing is trust
i wake up to find
the pirates have come
typing up along your coast
how was i to know
the pirates have come
between rebecca’s
beneath your firmaments
i have worshipped
in the jamaica inn
in the jamaica inn

with the gales
my little boat was tossed
how was i to know
that you’d sent her
with a lantern
to bring me in

“are you positive this is a friend?”
the captain grimaced,
“those are cliffs of rock ahead
if i’m not mistaken.”
