Suzanne Vega - Caramel

English

Caramel

It won't do
to dream of caramel,
to think of cinnamon
and long for you.
 
It won't do
to stir a deep desire,
to fan a hidden fire
that can never burn true.
 
I know your name,
I know your skin,
I know the way
these things begin;
 
But I don't know
how I would live with myself,
what I'd forgive of myself
if you don't go.
 
So goodbye,
sweet appetite,
no single bite
could satisfy...
 
I know your name,
I know your skin,
I know the way
these things begin;
 
But I don't know
how I would live with myself,
what I would give of myself
if you don't go.
 
It won't do
to dream of caramel,
to think of cinnamon
and long
for you.
