Suzanne Vega – Predictions lyrics

Let's tell the future
Let's see how it's been done.
By numbers. by mirrors. by water.
By dots made at random on paper.


By salt. by dice.
By meal. by mice.
By dough of cakes.
By sacrificial fire.


By fountains. by fishes.
Writing in ashes.
Birds. herbs.
Smoke from the altar.


A suspended ring or the mode of laughing
Pebbles drawn from a heap
One of these things
Will tell you something.


Let's tell the future
Let's see how it's been done.
By dreams. by the features. by letters.
By dropping hot was into water.


By nails reflecting the rays of the sun.
By waling in a circle.
By red hot iron.
By passages in books.
A balanced hatchet.


A suspended ring or the mode of laughing
Pebbles drawn from a heap
One of these things
Will tell you something.


Let's tell the future
Let's see how it's been done.
How it's been done.
