Alanis Morissette Heart of the House Lyrics

Last updated: 04/21/2013 10:19:53 AM

you are the original template
you are the original exemplary
how seen were you actually?
how revered were you (honestly) at the time?
why pleased with your low maintenance?
you loved us more than we could've love you back
where was your ally your partner in feminine crime?
oh mother who's your buddy
oh mother who's got your back
the heart of the house
the heart of the house
all hail the goddess!
you were "good ol'"
you were "count on 'er 'till four am"
you saw me run from the house
in the snow melodramatically
oh mother who's your sister?
oh mother who's your friend?
the heart of the house
the heart of the house
all hail the goddess!
we left the men and we went for a walk in the gatineaus
and talked like women to women would
womyn to womyn would "where did you get that from?
must've been your father your dad"
I got it from you I got it from you
do you see yourself in my gypsy garage sale ways?
in my fits of laughter?
in my tinkerbell tendencies?
in my lack of colour coordination?

I feel like this song isn't just commending her mother, but also criticizing her father, asking her sarcastically, 'Where is he? Why are you alone?' Am I the only one who gets feelings in general that Alanis had some troubles with her dad?
