      About "Widow's Walk"

      Lyrics for Suzanne Vega - "Widow's Walk"

      Consider me a widow, boys
      And I will tell you why.
      It's not the man, but it's the marriage
      That was drowned.

      So I walk the walk
      And wait with watchful eye out to the sky,
      Looking for a kind of vessel
      I have never found.

      Though I saw it splinter
      I keep looking out to sea,
      Like a dog with little sense,
      I keep returning,

      To the very area where
      I did see the thing go down
      As if there's something at the site
      I should be learning.

      That line is the horizon.
      We watch the wind and set the sail,
      But save ourselves when all omens
      Point to fail.

      If I tell the truth
      Then I will have to tell you this
      Though I grieve (and I believe
      I feel it truly)

      But I knew that ship was empty
      By the time it hit the rocks,
      We could not hold on
      When fate became unruly.

      So consider me a widow, boys,
      And I have told you why.
      Does the weather say
      A better day is nearing?

      I'll set my house in order now
      And wait upon the Will
      It's clear that I need
      Better skill in steering

      That line is the horizon.
      We watch the wind and set the sail,
      But save ourselves when all omens
      Point to fail.
