what's in that ash anyway?

if you start your numbering with ash wednesday as day 1, easter sunday is day 47. every year. true story.

who knew that suzanne vega would write a song about charlie and claire three or four years beforehand?

your virgin mary's in the way
hallucinate her face by day
obscure the view in front of you
it's me here made of clay

you're playing near that line so thin
austerity? or just give in
to endless appetite
embrace that white oblivion?

i have to say it makes me wonder
if you are holding me

to that calm blue flame
that you are under
when you are holding me

and why so high the expectation?
who could live up to this?
and there's no time now for explanation
cold as an angel's kiss

and i have to say it makes me wonder
if you are holding me

to that calm blue flame
that you are under
when you are holding me
