“But what if I'm a mermaid? In these jeans of yours with her name still on it Hey, but I don't care 'Cause sometimes I said sometimes I hear my voice I hear my voice I hear my voice And it's been here Silent all these years I've been here Silent all these years...”

YOU are one of Tori’s intimate, folk-y, yet empowering ballads. You have definitely been through drama. Perhaps you’re less fortunate like that, but, in truth, chances are that your vulnerable charm has made you the ideal ‘victim’ for complicated relationships. It may just be the case that you thrive on them. You’re a bit on the wild side, and there have been times when your mind has been described as ‘warped’. Bohemian by nature, you may not feel that you’re intrinsically an artist. On the contrary, you are rather likely to feel misunderstood, not talented enough or unable to truly express what you mean to express, stifled or silenced. But the key issue here is that you define your life in terms of expression. Your ‘voice’ is the most important thing to you, and, deep down, you are certain you’re going to find it one way or the other. This may mean that you’ll have to apply yourself to your art/craft more (time tends to slip by without you even noticing). Or that you’ll have to bring some structure in your life (the BoHo thing is chic when you’re in your twenties, but nobody wants to be a starving artist at 30). Or, more pragmatically, that you have to sort things out in your heart and your head and eliminate all the negative influences in your life. You somehow attract highly critical, over-powering individuals, who like to tell others what to do, think and feel. And, when confronted with this type, you’re more than likely to develop the urgent need to break free from other people’s opinions and expectations of yourself. You have true potential for self-expression, which you long to acknowledge and share with the world, but you just haven’t really given yourself the chance to do that, free from all the constraints of your complicated relationships. You have either lived through a lot of trauma or are just hyper-sensitive by nature and feel like you’ve gathered a lot of ‘baggage’ that you need to release yourself from.
