Cracking - Suzanne Vega

    It's a one time thing
    It just happens a lot
    Walk with me
    And we will see what we have got

    My footsteps are ticking
    Like water dripping from a tree
    Walking a hairline
    Stepping very carefully

    My heart is broken
    It's worn out at the knees
    Hearing muffled seeing blind
    Soon it will hit the deep freeze

    And something is cracking
    I don't know where
    Ice on the sidewalk
    Brittle branches in the air

    The sun is blinding
    Dizzy golden dancing green
    Through the park in the afternoon
    Wondering where the hell I have been
