Bells for Her (5:22)

Cover of Broken Stone

From Broken Stone and 61 other releases

“…the main thing about Bells is that there is no resolve, and that’s what that whole song was saying. Can’t stop what’s coming, can’t stop what is on its way. All I can do is respond truthfully, and the concept that we’ll always be friends, or we can always work it out, I would have bet you that I could have worked anything out with this person. I would have bet my hand I could have worked anything out. I’d be missing a hand right now. It’d be the one-armed Tori tour. I couldn’t have foreseen this. And I think, how many people, in marriages or families, and they’re going, ‘Wait a minute. I’m a rational being. This is a rational being, so we think.’ Of course, I’m a little — I’m partial, but I would have thought, yes, we could work it out. And when it got to in the end ‘blankettes,’ and the spelling changed, and when I was writing it down, I did it ‘blankettes’ as in — well, what it means to me is just blank women, chicks. Yet they were making mudpies and creating and it’s void now. And if you talk to people that know her, they think she’s a together, great babe. And if you talk to people that know me, I’m a together, great babe. And yet we just couldn’t do it. So there is a triangle on this record of the betrayal of women. It’s not just that relationship. It’s many other things in the other tunes. But Bells is the spirit speaking, not the ego speaking, but the part of me that still loves a friend that for whatever reason you can’t make a resolve. You just can’t do it.

And through the life force and there goes her friend
On her Nishiki it's out of time
And through the portal they can make amends
Hey would you say whatever we're blanket friends?
