Suzanne Vega - Tom's Dinner

Ainda sobre café... Com música!

Music that i never get tired of listening: Tom's Dinner

Porque a música da Suzanne Vega (que já caminhou pelo folk, dança moderna, literatura, poesia) é uma delícia, sempre está no meu repeat, é old, a letra é simples e cotidiana (assim como o café) e eu  A DO RO!

Tom's Dinner

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 pretendingn not to see them Instead I pour the milk

I open Up the paper there's a story of an actor
Who had died while he was drinking It 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

A versão com batida gostosa feita  por uma dupla de produtores britânicos chamada The DNA Disciple sem a autorização de Suzanne, que acabou autorizando o relançamento da música como single anos mais tarde. 

A versão gostosa sem aquele funk groove, esta é a capela original cheeeeeeia de solitude.
