      About "Suzanne"

      Lyrics for Roberta Flack - "Suzanne"

      Suzanne takes you down to her place near the river
      You can hear the boats go by
      You can spend the night beside her
      And you know that she's half crazy
      But that's why you want to be there
      And she feeds you tea and oranges
      That come all the way from China
      And just when you mean to tell her
      That you have no love to give her
      Then she gets you on her wavelength
      And she lets the river answer
      That you've always been her lover
      And you want to travel with her
      And you want to travel blind
      And you know that she will trust you
      For you've touched her perfect body with your mind.

      And Jesus was a sailor
      When he walked upon the water
      And he spent a long time watching
      From his lonely wooden tower
      And when he knew for certain
      Only drowning men could see him
      He said "All men will be sailors then
      Until the sea shall free them"
      But he himself was broken
      Long before the sky would open
      Forsaken, almost human
      He sank beneath your wisdom like a stone
      And you want to travel with him
      And you want to travel blind
      And you think maybe you'll trust him
      For he's touched your perfect body with his mind.

      Now Suzanne takes your hand
      And she leads you to the river
      She is wearing rags and feathers
      From Salvation Army counters
      And the sun pours down like honey
      On our lady of the harbour
      And she shows you where to look
      Among the garbage and the flowers
      There are heroes in the seaweed
      There are children in the morning
      They are leaning out for love
      And they will lean that way forever
      While Suzanne holds the mirror
      And you want to travel with her
      And you want to travel blind
      And you know that you can trust her
      For she's touched your perfect body with her mind.
