      About "Rosemary"

      Lyrics for Suzanne Vega - "Rosemary"

      Do you remember when you walked with me
      Down the street into the square
      How the women selling rosemary
      Pressed the branches to your chest
      Promised luck and all the rest
      Ran their fingers through your hair

      I had met you just the day before
      Like an accident of fate
      In the window there behind your door
      How I wanted to break in
      To that room beneath your skin
      But all that would have to wait

      In the Carmen of the Martyrs
      With the statues in the courtyard
      Whose heads and hands were taken in the burden of the sun
      I had come to meet you with a question in my footsteps
      I was going up the hillside and the journey just begun

      My sister says she never dreams at night
      There are days when I know why
      Those possibilities within her sight
      With no way of coming true
      Cause some things just don't get through
      Into this world although they try

      In the Carmen of the Martyrs
      With the statues in the courtyard
      Whose heads and hands were taken in the burden of the sun
      I had come to meet you with a question in my footsteps
      I was coming up the hillside and the journey just begun

      And all I know of you is in my memory
      And all I ask is you remember me
