Suzanne Vega by Suzanne Vega

Genre: Folk
Artist:Suzanne Vega
Suzanne Vega. Her first album is a music classic. One of those sorts of albums you have to own. Simple. Deeply Meaningful. Poignant. Beautifully crafted. At times its just her and her wonderful acoustic guitar - its very minimalist, very zen.

Its worth getting just for the sake of the first song on this album. "Cracking". That guitar and her voice is so mesmerizing.


It's a one time thing
It just happens
A lot
Walk with me
And we will see
What we have got

My footsteps are ticking
Like water dripping from a tree
Walking a hairline
And stepping very carefully

My heart is broken
It is worn out at the knees
Hearing muffled
Seeing blind
Soon it will hit the Deep Freeze

And something is cracking
I don't know where
Ice on the sidewalk
Brittle branches
In the air

The sun
Is blinding
Dizzy golden, dancing green
Through the park in the afternoon
Wondering where the hell
I have been
