      About "World Before Columbus"

      Lyrics for Suzanne Vega - "World Before Columbus"

      If your love were taken from me
      Every color would be black and white
      It would be as flat as the world before Columbus
      That's the day that I lose half my sight

      If your life were taken from me
      All the trees would freeze in this cold ground
      It would be as cruel as the world before Columbus
      Sail to the edge and I'd be there looking down

      Those men who lust for land
      And for riches strange and new
      Who love those trinkets of desire
      Oh they never will have you

      And they'll never know the gold
      Or the copper in your hair
      How could they weigh the worth
      Of you so rare

      If your love were taken from me
      Every light that's bright would soon go dim
      It would be as dark as the world before Columbus
      Down the waterfall and I'd swim over the brim

      Those men who lust for land
      And for riches strange and new
      Who love those trinkets of desire
      Oh they will never have you

      And they'll never know the gold
      Or the copper in your hair
      How could they weigh the worth
      Of you so rare
