Baker Baker (4:33)

Cover of Tales of a Librarian

From Tales of a Librarian and 34 other releases

“Baker Baker is kind of tragic in a way, because — I’ve had to look at how I treated men, and on this record, I think with Baker Baker, to deal with a man that truly loved me, but that I wasn’t emotionally available for. You know how women always say men aren’t emotionally available. Well, a lot of women aren’t emotionally available. It’s like, if you’re vulnerable, we say, ‘Look, we need you to be sensitive.’ So you become sensitive, and yet we go, ‘You’ve got no f***in’ backbone,’ and we kick you in the face and run off with a ski trainer.”

Baker baker, baking a cake
Make me a day, make me whole again
And I wonder what's in a day
What's in your cake this time

    "In Baker Baker, not blaming...that's where gaining my power is coming from, being able to say I am the one who has not been able to be intimate, I'm the one who pushed him away."

    I ran from him, in all kinds of ways. Guess it was his turn this time. Time, thought I'd make with friends with time, thought we'd be flying. Baby not this time. ;_;

    I LOVE the Tales of a Librarian version - the added strings make it more somber and emotional.

    Words can't describe how heartbreaking this song is.. It's like watching one of those sad romantic flicks.

    I have always loved Tori Amos for her gorgeous voice and so enchanting lyrics of her songs, we need to hear so much more of her

    This song is so beautiful. It puts tears in my eyes every time I listen to it. I think of a particular person every time I hear it, though I'm not sure who kicked who in the face, or who kicked the hardest. But I really wonder if he's okay right now.

    One of Tori's most heartwrenching ballads.
