World Before Columbus - Suzanne Vega (蘇珊·薇格)

If your love were taken from me

 

Every color would be black and white

 

It would be as flat as the world before Columbus

 

That's the day that I lose half my sight

 

If your life were taken from me

 

All the trees would freeze in this cold ground

 

It would be as cruel as the world before Columbus

 

Sail to the edge and I'd be there looking down

 

Those men who lust for land

And for riches strange and new

Who love those trinkets of desire

Oh they never will have you

 

And they'll never know the gold

 

Or the copper in your hair

 

How could they weigh the worth

 

Of you so rare

 

If your love were taken from me

 

Every light that's bright would soon go dim

 

It would be as dark as the world before Columbus

 

Down the waterfall and I'd swim over the brim

 

Those men who lust for land

And for riches strange and new

Who love those trinkets of desire

Oh they will never have you

And they'll never know the gold

Or the copper in your hair

 

How could they weigh the worth

Of you so rare
