Marlene on the wall

Cuando la pantera que hay dentro de mí me supera,
cuando me hago fiera de trapo
cuando se desborda hacia dentro
(si es que eso es posible),
siempre escucho la misma canción.

Ayer, casualidad o causalidad,
(cortesía de la reproducción aleatoria)
la canción volvió.
No sé si tomarlo como una señal.

Even if I am in love with you
All this to say, what's it to you?
Observe the blood, the rose tattoo
Of the fingerprints on me from you
Other evidence has shown
That you and I are still alone
We skirt around the danger zone
And don't talk about it later
Marlene watches from the wall
Her mocking smile says it all
As the records the rise and fall
Of every soldier passing
But the only soldier now is me
I'm fighting things I cannot see
I think it's called my destiny
That I am changing
Marlene on the wall

Marlene on the wall, Suzanne Vega
