      About "Headshots"

      Lyrics for Suzanne Vega - "Headshots"

      The sign said "Head shots"
      And that was all,
      A picture of a boy
      And a number you could call,
      Two eyes in the shade
      A mouth so sad and small,
      It's strange the way a shadow
      Can fall across the wall,
      And make the difference
      In what you see
      Ah...

      He's just a poster, but
      He's everywhere,
      A face under a street lamp
      Ripped and hanging in the air,
      Turn the corner
      And he's still there,
      Watching all the people
      Who are passing unaware,
      Is there a judgment
      In what he sees?
      Ah...

      On a day
      As cold
      And gray
      As today...

      The sign says "Head shots"
      It's all I see,
      A boy becomes a picture
      Of guilt and sympathy,
      And so I think of you
      In memory
      Of the days we were together,
      And I knew that you loved me
      That was the difference
      In what we see,
      But that's history...
      Ah...
