Sometimes I sing Valerie this song as a lullaby, even though I never knew until I just looked it up now that the artist wrote it for her daughter:
If your love were taken from me
Every color would be black and white
It would be as flat as the world before Columbus
That's the day that I lose half my sight
Those men who lust for land
And for riches strange and new
Who love those trinkets of desire
Oh they never will have you
And they'll never know the gold
Or the copper in your hair
How could they weigh the worth
Of you so rare
~ Suzanne Vega, "World Before Columbus"
