  • suzanne vega'nın nine objects of desire albümünden çok güzel bir şarkı.

    if your love were taken from me
    every color would be black and white
    it would be as flat as the world before columbus
    that's the day that i lose half my sight

    if your life were taken from me
    all the trees would freeze in this cold ground
    it would be as cruel as the world before columbus
    sail to the edge and i'd be there looking down

    those men who lust for land
    and for riches strange and new
    who love those trinkets of desire
    oh they never will have you

    and they'll never know the gold
    or the copper in your hair
    how could they weigh the worth
    of you so rare

    if your love were taken from me
    every light that's bright would soon go dim
    it would be as dark as the world before columbus
    down the waterfall and i'd swim over the brim

    those men who lust for land
    and for riches strange and new
    who love those trinkets of desire
    oh they will never have you

    and they'll never know the gold
    or the copper in your hair
    how could they weigh the worth
    of you so rare
