      About "(I'll Never Be) Your Maggie May"

      Lyrics for Suzanne Vega - "(I'll Never Be) Your Maggie May"

      I'll never be your Maggie May
      The one you loved and left behind
      The face you see in light of day
      And then you cast away
      That isn't me in that bed you'll find

      I'd rather take myself away
      Be like those ladies in Japan
      Rather paint myself a face
      Conjure up some grace
      Or be the eyes behind a fan

      [Chorus]

      And so you go
      No girl could say no
      To you

      There's the way we may appear
      But that will change from day to night
      Would you ever see within?
      Underneath the skin?
      Could I believe you had that sight?

      [Chorus]

      I'll never be your Maggie May
      The one you loved and then forgot
      I'll love you first and let you go
      Because it must be so
      And you'll forgive or you will not

      And so a woman leaves a man
      And so a world turns on it's end
      So I'll see your face in dreams
      Where nothing's what it seems
      You still appear some kind of friend

      [Chorus]
