Artist's Description

Language by Suzanne Vega

If language were liquid, It would be rushing in Instead here we are, In a silence more eloquent Than any word could ever be
These words are too solid. They don’t move fast enough
To catch the blur in the brain. That flies by and is gone Gone Gone Gone. I’d like to meet youIn a timeless, placeless place
Somewhere out of context And beyond all consequences
Let’s go back to the building (Words are too solid)
On Little West Twelfth It is not far away (They don’t move fast enough)
And the river is there And the sun and the spaces Are all laying low
(To catch the blurin the brain) And we’ll sit in the silence
(That flies by and is) That comes rushing in and is Gone (Gone)
I won’t use words again They don’t mean what I meant They don’t say what I said They’re just the crust of the meaning With realms underneath Never touched Never stirred Never even moved through
If language were liquid It would be rushing in Instead here we are
In a silence more eloquent Than any word could ever be And is gone
Gone Gone And is gone
