  • It won't do
    To dream of caramel,
    To think of cinnamon
    And long for you.


    It won't do
    To stir a deep desire,
    To fan a hidden fire
    That can never burn true.

    I know your name,
    I know your skin,
    I know the way
    These things begin;

    But I don't know
    How I would live with myself,
    What I'd forgive of myself
    If you don't go.

    So goodbye,
    Sweet appetite,
    No single bite
    Could satisfy...

    I know your name,
    I know your skin,
    I know the way
    These things begin;

    But I don't know
    What I would give of myself,
    How I would live with myself
    If you don't go.

    It won't do
    To dream of caramel,
    To think of cinnamon
    And long
    For you. Writer/s: SUZANNE VEGA
