      Lyrics for Suzanne Vega - "Tom's Diner (A Cappella)"

      I am sitting
      In the morning
      At the diner
      On the corner

      I am waiting
      At the counter
      For the man
      To pour the coffee

      And he fills it
      Only halfway
      And before
      I even argue

      He is looking
      Out the window
      At somebody
      Coming in

      "It is always
      Nice to see you"
      Says the man
      Behind the counter

      To the woman
      Who has come in
      She is shaking
      Her umbrella

      And I look
      The other way
      As they are kissing
      Their hellos

      I'm pretending
      Not to see them
      And Instead
      I pour the milk

      I open
      Up the paper
      There's a story
      Of an actor

      Who had died
      While he was drinking
      He was no one
      I had heard of

      And I'm turning
      To the horoscope
      And looking
      For the funnies

      When I'm feeling
      Someone watching me
      And so
      I raise my head

      There's a woman
      On the outside
      Looking inside
      Does she see me?

      No she does not
      Really see me
      Cause she sees
      Her own reflection

      And I'm trying
      Not to notice
      That she's hitching
      Up her skirt

      And while she's
      Straightening her stockings
      Her hair
      Is getting wet

      Oh, this rain
      It will continue
      Through the morning
      As I'm listening

      To the bells
      Of the cathedral
      I am thinking
      Of your voice

      And of the midnight picnic
      Once upon a time
      Before the rain began

      I finish up my coffee
      It's time to catch the train
