      About "Straight Lines"

      Lyrics for Suzanne Vega - "Straight Lines"

      There's a sound
      Across the alley
      Of cold metal
      Touching skin

      And you can see
      If you look in her window
      That she has gone and cut
      Her hair again

      In straight lines
      Straight lines

      Those soft golden lights in the morning
      Are now on her wooden floor
      The wind has swept them through the apartment
      She don't need them

      Any more
      Any more
      Any more

      She's cut down
      On her lovers
      Though she still dreams
      Of them at night

      She's growing straight lines
      Where once were flowers
      She is streamlined
      She is taking the shade down
      From the light

      To see the straight lines
      Straight lines

      She wants to cut through the circles
      That she has lived in before
      She wants to finally kill the delusions
      She won't need them

      Any more
      Any more
      Any more

      But there's a sound
      Across the alley
      Of cold metal
      Too close to the bone

      And you can see
      If you look in her window
      The face of a woman
      Finally alone

      Behind straight lines
      Straight lines
