Suzanne Vega

Marlene on the wall (Video) (Audio)

[*And] Even if I am in love with you,
all this to say, what's it to you?
Observe the blood, the rose tattoo
of the fingerprints on me from you
Other evidence has shown that you and I are still alone
We skirt around the danger zone and don't talk about it later (fine I)


Marlene who watches from the wall
Her mocking smile says it all,
as she records the rise and fall of every soldier passing
But the only soldier now is me
I'm fighting things I cannot see
I think it's called my destiny that I am changing
[Marlene on the wall/**|: changing, changing :|]

Well, I walked to your house in the afternoon,
by the butcher shop with the sawdust strewn
Don't give away the goods too soon,
is what she might have told me.

And I tried so hard to resist,
when you held me in your handsome fist,
and reminded me of the night we kissed,
and of why I should be leaving.

Chorus (fine II)
