Suzanne Vega: Tom’s Diner

I am

In the

At the

On the

I am

At the

For the man

To the coffee

And he it


And before

I even

He is looking

Out the

At somebody


"It is

Nice to you"

Says the man

Behind the counter

To the

Who has come in

She is

The other way

As they are

Their hellos


Not to see them


I pour the

I open

Up the paper

There's a story

Of an

And I'm

To the

And looking

For the

When I'm feeling

watching me

And so

I my head

There's a woman

Looking inside

Does she see me?

see me

Cause she sees

Her reflection

And I'm trying

Not to

That she's

Up her

And while she's


Her hair

Has wet

Oh, this rain

It will continue

the morning

As I'm listening

To the

Of the

I am thinking

Of your voice...

And of the picnic

Once upon a time

Before the rain ...

I up my coffee

It's time to the train

And God I know I'm one
