      About "Language"

      Lyrics for Suzanne Vega - "Language"

      If language were liquid
      It would be rushing in
      Instead here we are
      In a silence more eloquent
      Than any word could ever be

      These words are too solid
      They don't move fast enough
      To catch the blur in the brain
      That flies by and is gone
      Gone
      Gone
      Gone

      I'd like to meet you
      In a timeless, placeless place
      Somewhere out of context
      And beyond all consequences

      Let's go back to the building
      (Words are too solid)
      On Little West Twelfth
      It is not far away
      (They don't move fast enough)
      And the river is there
      And the sun and the spaces
      Are all laying low
      (To catch the blur in the brain)
      And we'll sit in the silence
      (That flies by and is)
      That comes rushing in and is
      Gone (Gone)

      I won't use words again
      They don't mean what I meant
      They don't say what I said
      They're just the crust of the meaning
      With realms underneath
      Never touched
      Never stirred
      Never even moved through

      If language were liquid
      It would be rushing in
      Instead here we are
      In a silence more eloquent
      Than any word could ever be

      And is gone
      Gone
      Gone
      And is gone
