Solitude Standing  Suzanne Vega



--------------------------------

[Intro: 12 measures of Amsus2] 
[Amsus2]Solitude stands by the [Amsus2]window
[Amsus2]She turns her head as I [Amsus2]walk in the room
I can [Amsus2]see by her eyes she's been [Amsus2]waiting
[Amsus2]Standing in the [Amsus2]slant of the late afternoon
And she [Am(9]turns to me with her [Am(9]hand extended
Her [B5/A]palm is split with a [B5/A]flower with a flame[Amsus2]         [Amsus2]
[Am(9)/C] [instrumen[Am(9)/C]tal; melod[B5]y is cdeG[B5]ABcd eGAB[Am(9)/C]cdeG ABcde[Am(9)/C]GAB etc.]   [B5]       [B5]
[Amsus2] [instrumen[Amsus2]tal]      [Amsus2]         [Amsus2]
Solitude stands in the doorway
I'm struck once again by her black silhouette
By her long cool stare and her silence
I suddenly remember each time we've met
And she turns to me with her hand extended
Her palm is split with a flower with a flame
[12 bars of instrumental again] 

[Amsus2]  And she says, "I've [Amsus2]come to set a [Amsus2/G]twisted thing [Amsus2/F]straight"
[Amsus2]  And she says, "I've [Amsus2]come to lighten [Amsus2/G]this dark he[Amsus2/F]art"
[C#m7]  And she takes my [C#m7]wrist, I feel her [Bsus4]imprint of[Amsus2] fear
[C#m7]  And I say, "I [C#m7]never thought of [Bsus4]finding you [Amsus2]here"

And I turn to the crowd as they're watching
They're sitting all together in the dark and the warm
And I wanted to be in there among them
I see how their eyes are gathered into one
And she turns to me with her hand extended
Her palm is split with a flower with a flame
[12 bars of instrumental again] 

And she says, "I've come to set a twisted thing straight"
And she says, "I've come to lighten this dark heart"
And she takes my wrist, I feel her imprint of fear
And I say, "I never thought of finding you here"

Solitude stands in the doorway
I'm struck once again by her black silhouette
By her long cool stare and her silence
I suddenly remember each time we've met
And she turns to me with her hand extended
Her palm is split with a flower with a flame

[Fade out on repeated Am(9)/C & B5]
