"Marlene on the Wall"
off of the self-titled album, “Suzanne Vega” (1st album)

Acoustic: Standard Tuning, Capo 2nd fret

This song's mostly choc-full of open 'power' chords. 
Keep the high e and b strings open
for that 'open' and 'full' effect

Of the fingerprints on me from you

{It goes on like that}

Other evidence has shown
That you and I are still alone
We skirt around the danger zone
And don't talk about it later

As she 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

I walk to your house in the afternoon
By the butcher shop with the sawdust strewn
"Don't give away the goods too soon"
Is waht she might have told me

But I've tried so hard to resist
when you hold me in your handsome fist
and remembered when the night we kissed 
and why i should be leaving

Chorus:
Marlene watches from the wall
Her mocking smile says it all
As the records the rise and fall
Of every man who's been here

But the only one here now is me
I'm fighting things I cannot see
I think it's called my destiny
That I am changing, changing, changing, changing...
