I love Tori Amos - what do the lyrics to "Spark" mean?

I love that song also.


Answer by  EchoC (553)

Tori's mentioned it's about the anger she experienced after a miscarriage, also about questioning the fairness of fate or God. Metaphors in the song also speak of paradoxes within people.

Tori Amos was pregnant and lost her baby. This song is about her anger at God for the loss. She was very angry at the "spirit of the baby" and wrote this song to cope.

Spark is about when Tori Amos miscarried in 1996 when she was three months pregnant. This song came afterwards, describing her anger to God.

I can relate to this song because I had a miscarriage, so this song is about losing a baby ad then denying it but deep inside it hurts.


Answer by  Annie82 (373)

She wrote it after having a miscarriage, having doubts or second thoughts about everything. The lyrics refer to nicotine patches and easy to conclude "spark" refers to smoking, but it really becomes a laundry list of her supposed faults, depression, and the search for her inner spark again.

It's about a girl having a really bad day, but she has a will to live despite it. It is based of death lurking.
