In early works of Tori Amos, one is immediately drawn to a sense that
she is in a precarious situation, a feeling of dread ( she was  victim
of a sexual assault).  Born into a religious family (father was a
pastor), her early songs are about her upbringing, and search for  her
own identity.


Winter is from album Little Earthquakes released in 1992, it's is a tribute to her father. She begins by recounting an early childhood memory; by the second verse, she is singing from the perspective of a young girl; and eventually in adulthood she is aware of the reality of her father's death.

I have a special admiration for those who can sing so well accompanied by only one instrument. You feel every little change in her voice; as a matter of fact, she is 'giving birth' to every word in the song.
