As You Are Now - Suzanne Vega (蘇珊·薇格)

I will take up all your tears


Salty tissues through the years


Spread them in the sun to dry


Diamonds from each time you cry


I will treasure all your teeth


Your laughter and the pearls beneath


Keep them in a cardboard box


Through the tickings and the tocks


I will gather all your hair

Floating in the sultry air


We will make a braid of gold

For you to keep when you are old


Now I kiss your milky skin


Sheet of silk and soul within


Put this kiss upon your brow


Treasure you as you are now
