This Mother’s Day, Tori Amos wanted to extend a special gift to all mothers in the best way she knows how: with song. ‘Maybe California’ — off her May 19th-due album, ‘Abnormally Attracted to Sin’ — was written, as she describes it, from one mother to another, who, as the lyrics explore, is contemplating suicide. The tune itself is meant as a saving grace, of sorts.



“There are people in our lives, and we all know them, that are able to give even in the darkest of times,” Amos, who has an 8-year-old daughter, Natashya, says. “Even when they seem depleted. But somehow by giving, they gain this magical light. Even the most giving person needs a gift every once and a while, just to know they are seen and appreciated. ‘Maybe California’ is my gift to you.” SOURCE
