Marlene On The Wall

Suzanne Vega


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

Marlene 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

Well I walk to your house in the afternoon
By the butcher shot, 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 first
And reminded me, of the night we kissed
And of why I should be leaving

Marlene 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

Marlene 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

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

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

Marlene watches from the wall
Her mocking smile says it all
As the records the rise and fall
Of every man who's been here

But the only one here now is me
I'm fighting things I cannot see
I think it's called my destiny
That I am changing, changing, changing, changing, changing

Marlene 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
