Marlene on the Wall

 

 

Marlene watches from the wall…her mocking smile says it all…

As she records the rise and fall…of every man who’s been here… 

 

 

But the only one here now is me…I’m fighting things I cannot see…

I think it’s called my destiny…that I am changing…

 

 

 


 

Lyrics from “Marlene on the Wall” by Suzanne Vega, 1985.
