hidden in veils, covered in silk
She's a pornographer's dream, he said.
I knew what he meant.
But it made me imagine: what kind of a dream
He would have, that hadn't been spent?

Would he still dream of the thigh? of the flesh upon high?
What he saw so much of?
Wouldn't he dream of the thing that he never
Could quite get the touch of?

It's out of his hands, over his head
Out of his reach, under this real life
Hidden in veils, covered in silk
He's dreaming of what might be.

Out of his hands, over his head
Out of his reach, under this real life
Hidden in veils,
He's dreaming of mystery.

Bettie Page is still the rage
With her legs and leather;
She turns to tease the camera, and please us at home,
And we let her.

Who's to know what she'll show of herself,
In what measure?
If what she reveals, or what she conceals,
Is the key to our pleasure?

It's out of our hands, over our heads
Out of our reach, under this real life
Hidden in veils, covered in silk
We're dreaming of what might be

It's out of our hands, over our heads
Out of our reach, under this real life
Hidden in veils
We're dreaming of mystery.

Pornographer's Dream (Suzanne Vega)

Я раньше любила- теперь уже не так. ) Только пара песен осталась любимых. Она для меня теперь как-то чрезмерно изломана...

А ты знаешь историю, как она совего настоящего отца встретила в 40 лет?

Надо же. Я и не знала. )
Я тебе потом ее найду. Вкратце там дело в том, что она была приемной дочерью (у нее был отчим- семья распалась еще до рождения) и не знала отца. Отчим был пуэтрориканец- в 9 лет она узнала, что отец был белым, и "потеряла самоидентификацию" типа. А потом она его искала, даже наняла частного детектива. И встретила в аэропорту- сразу же узнала. И тут в ней что-то полностью расслабилось, закрылось какое-то "зияние". Может, она после этого и замуж вышла. ))

Personal life

On March 17, 1995 Vega married Mitchell Froom, a musician and a record producer. They have a daughter, Ruby Froom (born July 8, 1994). The band Soul Coughing's Ruby Vroom album was named after her, with Vega's approval, though she requested a slight change.[5] Vega and Froom separated in 1998.

On February 11, 2006, Vega married Paul Mills, a lawyer and a poet. They originally met each other at Folk City on West 4th Street when Michael Cera, a friend of Froom, introduced them in 1981. In their own words, Mills proposed to Vega in May 1983, and she accepted his proposal on Christmas Day 2005.[16]
