Suzanne Vega - Music
Suzanne Vega - Night Vision
"...When the darkness takes you
With her hand across your face
Don't give in too quickly
Find the thing she's erased
Find the line, find the shape
Through the grain
Find the outline, and things will
Tell you their name..."
"You'd like to protect people from the things that are out there, but you can't always, so it's better to teach them how to see the dangers and the bad things, and to deal with them and not pretend that they don't exist. "
From the "Solitude Standing" album liner notes:
Inspired by the poem "Juan Gris" by Paul Eluard.
