I dreamed you were a rich man
and that I had no place to go
I came to you, to see if you would take me in
through golden curtains you told me, you'd let me know.

You drink for 10 and you smoke for 20
and your fickle heart will never be true
but still I feel the wind in from the harbor
and that's when I know the old longing for you.

I saw you in my mind's eye
you were laid out on your final day
I stood in line to see your handsome face once more
it had been so dear to me, and I kissed you as you lay.

So whenever I do travel
if to England, Portugal or Spain,
as I do walk by the shipyards and the harbors,
I know the salt and the bay rum, and your ghost again,
I smell the salt and the bay rum, and you beside me again.

Listening to Suzanne Vega is like the worst hangover that remains even after the morning shot of Jack Daniels. Suzanne Vega is painful :frustrated:
Jack? yuck. And in the morning hungover? :puke: Try some Cabo Wabo and skip the hangover.

Wow, bummer for you. Suzanne Vega is a musical goddess with the voice of an angel. How's that for a responsible opposing viewpoint? :)
I agree, but this is not a good choice to play. It seems slower than on the CD....but, I think the CD this comes from is a masterpiece from her cover to cover.
Yeah.
Mmmm, finest SV I've heard in a long time. Yes, there is a little backhand to that compliment...
What a Sexy voice
