Vega, Suzanne - Cracking Lyrics




It's a one time thing
It just happens
A lot
Walk with me
And we will see
What we have got
Ah...

My footsteps are ticking
Like water dripping from a tree
Walking a harline
And stepping very carefully
Ah...

My heart is broken
It is 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 braches
In the air

The sun
Is blinding
Dizzy golden, dancing green
Through the park in the afternoon
Wondering where the hell
I have been
Ah...

Vega, Suzanne Cracking Comments
  1. Jeff Lindstrom

    I spent the summer of 1985 listening to this album. Such a great time.

  2. Arthur Makosch

    Wundervoll

  3. Franco Semprini

    Mi era piaciuta subito tantissimo questa canzone del 1° Album di Suzanne Vega, dal 1985 quando fu pubblicata, sia per la musica e il significato della canzone e per questo modo asciutto ed essenziale di narrare…una poetica molto urbana in tante canzoni di Suzanne Vega

  4. ldognz

    so wonderful she changed my life

  5. Marc-André

    bon sang

  6. ldognz

    Fenrir Howls

    Walk with me, and we will see what we have got.

    I used to be strong.

  11. Marcelo Santos

    It's a one time thing
    It just happens
    A lot
    Walk with me
    And we will see
    What we have got
    Ah...

    My footsteps are ticking
    Like water dripping from a tree
    Walking a harline
    And stepping very carefully
    Ah...

    My heart is broken
    It is 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 braches
    In the air

    The sun
    Is blinding
    Dizzy golden, dancing green
    Through the park in the afternoon
    Wondering where the hell
    I have been
    Ah...

    I have been intrigued by Suzanne Vega from the moment I heard this song over 30 years ago. It still gives me chills.

  13. Iona Messerschmitt

    me aged 17 in 1985, left home for the first time, quietly going mad with schizophrenia in a Scottish autumn/winter. Yep, this song really spoke to me!

    Mr Tim TREMMEL

    scottish winters are tough. i dont miss them. Similar memories of this so
    ng but happier than yours i think.

  14. Matt Doll

    One of my very favourite songs ...

  15. rain73ful

    Such a beautiful album. I think it's her best after 99.9 degrees.

  16. TCDB

    Robert Smith of The Cure admitted a few days ago on BBC Radio 6 Music that he liked Suzanne Vega's debut album so much that he ripped off one of the songs for an old B side of The Cure. The melody of "Cracking" is similar to "2 Late" from 1989: https://youtu.be/OJIeEIwZJtk

    Trace Hall

    TCDB I just listened to that song by the cure, it's really good! I feel like i should say thanks, thanks!

    TCDB

    You're welcome! :) I'm happy to hear that you like it. Me too.

  17. Jack Pidgeon

    Franco Semprini

  23. David Cummings

    I got this in 87 as a 22 year old I thought to myself then, its not your usual pop song ...
    Having suffered from mental health issues in my latter years, this song is so profound!.
