      About "Edith Wharton's Figurines"

      Lyrics for Suzanne Vega - "Edith Wharton's Figurines"

      Edith Wharton's lovely figurines
      Still speak to me today
      From their mantelpiece in time
      Where they wrestle and they play
      With passions and with prudences
      Finances and fears
      Her face - what it's worth to her
      In the passing of the years

      See the portrait come to life
      See the vanity behind
      'Cause in the struggle for survival
      Love is never blind

      Now Olivia lies under anesthesia
      Her wit and wonder snuffed
      In a routine operation
      Her own beauty not enough
      Her passions and her prudences
      Finances and fears
      Her face - what it's worth to her
      In the passing of the years

      See the portrait come to life
      See the vanity behind
      'Cause in the struggle for survival
      Love is never blind

      Edith Wharton's lovely figurines
      Still speak to me today
      From their mantelpiece in time
      Where they wrestle and they play
      We lie under anesthesia
      Our wit and wonder snuffed
      In our routine operations
      Our own beauty not enough
