"Rock In This Pocket" as written by and Suzanne Vega....
Excuse me
If I may
Turn your attention
My way
One moment
I won't plead
It isn't much
It's what I need


And what's so small to you
Is so large to me
If it's the last thing I do
I'll make you see


If you turn from me
You darken my sun
You snap that thin thread
I call my horizon
And I'd like to remind you
Of something small
That the rock in this pocket
Could cause your fall


And what's so small to you
Is so large to me
If it's the last thing I do
I'll make you see


So small to you
And so large to me
If its the last thing I do
I'll make you see


I might be out like a light
Extinguished in the throw
But I'll hit my mark
And you'll know
Because I'm really well acquainted
With the span of your brow
And if you didn't know me then
You'll know me now
You'll know me now


And what's so small to you
Is so large to me
If its the last thing I do
I'll make you see


So small to you
And so large to me
If it's the last thing I do
I'll make you see
Make you see
Make you see

    General CommentWell, this is an easy one, since I heard Suzzane herself saying this is about David and Golaith (she also explained that contrary to a question some reporter asked her, it is not about the size of someone penis).

    But for me, when I hear this song, I remember Sam and Frodo crossing the land of Mordor. It seems to fit there.

    General CommentSure - and it also reminds me of "in the eye" - where she's singing to someone more powerful than her, but with whom she is willing to sacrifice herself to inflict a serious blow . . .
