    Lyrics:

    Now I've heard there was a secret chord
    That David played, and it pleased the Lord
    But you don't really care for music, do you?
    It goes like this, the fourth, the fifth
    The minor fall, the major lift
    The baffled king composing Hallelujah

    Hallelujah, Hallelujah
    Hallelujah, Hallelujah

    Your faith was strong but you needed proof
    You saw her bathing on the roof
    Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew you
    She tied you to a kitchen chair
    She broke your throne and she cut your hair
    And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah

    Hallelujah, Hallelujah
    Hallelujah, Hallelujah

    Baby I have been here before
    I know this room, I've walked this floor
    I used to live alone before I knew you
    I've seen your flag on the marble arch
    Love is not a victory march
    It's a cold and it's a broken Hallelujah

    Hallelujah, Hallelujah
    Hallelujah, Hallelujah

    There was a time you let me know
    What's really going on below
    But now you never show it to me, do you?
    And remember when I moved in you
    The holy dove was moving too
    And every breath we drew was Hallelujah

    Hallelujah, Hallelujah
    Hallelujah, Hallelujah

    You say I took the name in vain
    I don't even know the name
    But if I did, well really, what's it to you?
    There's a blaze of light in every word
    It doesn't matter which you heard
    The holy or the broken Hallelujah

    Hallelujah, Hallelujah
    Hallelujah, Hallelujah

    Maybe there's a God above
    But all I've ever learned from love
    Was how to shoot at somebody who outdrew you
    And it's not a cry that you hear at night
    It's not somebody who's seen the light
    It's a cold and it's a broken Hallelujah

    Hallelujah, Hallelujah
    Hallelujah, Hallelujah

    I did my best, it wasn't much
    I couldn't feel, so I tried to touch
    I've told the truth, I didn't come to fool you
    And even though it all went wrong
    I'll stand before the Lord of Song
    With nothing on my tongue but Hallelujah

    Hallelujah, Hallelujah
    Hallelujah, Hallelujah

    Lyrics:

    Dance me to your beauty with a burning violin
    Dance me through the panic 'til I'm gathered safely in
    Lift me like an olive branch and be my homeward dove
    Dance me to the end of love
    Dance me to the end of love

    Oh let me see your beauty when the witnesses are gone
    Let me feel you moving like they do in Babylon
    Show me slowly what I only know the limits of
    Oh dance me to the end of love
    Dance me to the end of love

    Dance me to the wedding now, oh dance me on and on
    Dance me very tenderly and dance me very long
    We're both of us beneath our love, we're both of us above
    Dance me to the end of love
    Dance me to the end of love

    Dance me to the children who are asking to be born
    Dance me through the curtains that our kisses have outworn
    Raise a tent of shelter now, though every thread is torn
    Dance me to the end of love

    Dance me to your beauty with a burning violin
    Dance me through the panic 'til I'm gathered safely in
    Touch me with your naked hand, touch me with your glove
    Dance me to the end of love
    Dance me to the end of love
    Dance me to the end of love

    Lyrics:

    I was always working steady
    But I never called it art
    I got my shit together
    Meeting Christ and reading Marx
    It failed my little fire
    But it’s bright the dying spark
    Go tell the young messiah
    What happens to the heart

    There’s a mist of summer kisses
    Where I tried to double-park
    The rivalry was vicious
    The women were in charge
    It was nothing, it was business
    But it left an ugly mark
    I’ve come here to revisit
    What happens to the heart

    I was selling holy trinkets
    I was dressing kind of sharp
    Had a pussy in the kitchen
    And a panther in the yard

    In the prison of the gifted
    I was friendly with the guards
    So I never had to witness
    What happens to the heart

    I should have seen it coming
    After all I knew the chart
    Just to look at her was trouble
    It was trouble from the start
    Sure we played a stunning couple
    But I never liked the part
    It ain't pretty, it ain't subtle
    What happens to the heart

    Now the angel’s got a fiddle
    The devil’s got a harp
    Every soul is like a minnow
    Every mind is like a shark
    I’ve broken every window
    But the house, the house is dark
    I care but very little
    What happens to the heart

    Then I studied with this beggar
    He was filthy, he was scarred
    By the claws of many women
    He had failed to disregard
    No fable here no lesson
    No singing meadowlark
    Just a filthy beggar guessing
    What happens to the heart

    I was always working steady
    But I never called it art
    It was just some old convention
    Like the horse before the cart
    I had no trouble betting
    On the flood, against the ark
    You see, I knew about the ending
    What happens to the heart

    I was handy with a rifle
    My father’s .303
    I fought for something final
    Not the right to disagree

    Lyrics:

    Suzanne takes you down to her place near the river
    You can hear the boats go by
    You can spend the night beside her
    And you know that she's half crazy
    But that's why you want to be there
    And she feeds you tea and oranges
    That come all the way from China
    And just when you mean to tell her
    That you have no love to give her
    Then she gets you on her wavelength
    And she lets the river answer
    That you've always been her lover

    And you want to travel with her
    And you want to travel blind
    And you know that she will trust you
    For you've touched her perfect body with your mind

    And Jesus was a sailor
    When he walked upon the water
    And he spent a long time watching
    From his lonely wooden tower
    And when he knew for certain
    Only drowning men could see him
    He said All men will be sailors then
    Until the sea shall free them
    But he himself was broken
    Long before the sky would open
    Forsaken, almost human
    He sank beneath your wisdom like a stone

    And you want to travel with him
    And you want to travel blind
    And you think maybe you'll trust him
    For he's touched your perfect body with his mind

    Now Suzanne takes your hand
    And she leads you to the river
    She is wearing rags and feathers
    From Salvation Army counters
    And the sun pours down like honey
    On Our Lady of the Harbour
    And she shows you where to look
    Among the garbage and the flowers
    There are heroes in the seaweed
    There are children in the morning
    They are leaning out for love
    And they will lean that way forever
    While Suzanne holds the mirror

    And you want to travel with her
    And you want to travel blind
    And you know you can trust her
    For she's touched your perfect body with her mind

    LYRICS:

    I loved your face, I loved your hair
    Your T-shirts and your eveningwear
    As for the world, the job, the war
    I ditched them all to love you more

    And now you’re gone, now you’re gone
    As if there ever was a you
    Who broke the heart and made it new
    Who’s moving on, who’s kidding who

    I loved your moods, I love the way
    They threaten every single day
    Your beauty ruled me, though I knew
    Twas more hormonal than the view

    And now you’re gone, now you’re gone
    As if there ever was a you
    Queen of lilac, queen of blue
    Who’s moving on, who’s kidding who

    I loved your face, I loved your hair
    Your T-shirts and your eveningwear
    As for the world, the job, the war
    I ditched them all to love you more

    And now you’re gone, now you’re gone
    As if there ever was a you
    Who held me dying, pulled me through
    Who’s moving on, who’s kidding who

    Lyrics:

    If you are the dealer
    I'm out of the game
    If you are the healer
    It means I'm broken and lame
    If thine is the glory then
    Mine must be the shame
    You want it darker
    We kill the flame

    Magnified, sanctified
    Be thy holy name
    Vilified, crucified
    In the human frame
    A million candles burning
    For the help that never came
    You want it darker

    Hineni, hineni
    I'm ready, my Lord

    There's a lover in the story
    But the story's still the same
    There's a lullaby for suffering
    And a paradox to blame
    But it's written in the scriptures
    And it's not some idle claim
    You want it darker
    We kill the flame

    They're lining up the prisoners
    And the guards are taking aim
    I struggled with some demons
    They were middle-class and tame
    I didn't know I had permission
    To murder and to maim
    You want it darker

    Hineni, hineni
    I'm ready, my Lord

    Magnified, sanctified
    Be thy holy name
    Vilified, crucified
    In the human frame
    A million candles burning
    For the love that never came
    You want it darker
    We kill the flame

    If you are the dealer
    Let me out of the game
    If you are the healer
    I'm broken and lame
    If thine is the glory
    Mine must be the shame
    You want it darker

    Hineni, hineni

    Lyrics:

    They sentenced me to twenty years of boredom
    For tryin' to change the system from within
    I'm coming now, I'm coming to reward them
    First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin

    I'm guided by a signal in the heavens
    I'm guided by this birthmark on my skin
    I'm guided by the beauty of our weapons
    First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin

    I'd really like to live beside you, baby
    I love your body and your spirit and your clothes
    But you see that line there moving through the station?
    I told you, I told you, told you, I was one of those

    Ah you loved me as a loser, but now you're worried that I just might win
    You know the way to stop me, but you don't have the discipline
    How many nights I prayed for this, to let my work begin
    First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin

    I don't like your fashion business, mister
    And I don't like these drugs that keep you thin
    I don't like what happened to my sister
    First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin

    I'd really like to live beside you, baby
    I love your body and your spirit and your clothes
    But you see that line there moving through the station?
    I told you, I told you, told you, I was one of those

    And I thank you for those items that you sent me
    The monkey and the plywood violin
    I practiced every night, now I'm ready
    First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin

    (I am guided)

    Ah remember me, I used to live for music (baby)
    Remember me, I brought your groceries in (ooh baby yeah)
    Well it's Father's Day and everybody's wounded (baby)
    First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin

    Lyrics:

    It's four in the morning, the end of December
    I'm writing you now just to see if you're better
    New York is cold, but I like where I'm living
    There's music on Clinton Street all through the evening

    I hear that you're building your little house deep in the desert
    You're living for nothing now. I hope you're keeping some kind of record

    Yes, and Jane came by with a lock of your hair
    She said that you gave it to her
    That night that you planned to go clear
    Did you ever go clear?

    Oh, the last time we saw you you looked so much older
    Your famous blue raincoat was torn at the shoulder
    You'd been to the station to meet every train
    But then you came home without Lili Marlene

    And you treated my woman to a flake of your life
    And when she came back she was nobody's wife

    I see you there with the rose in your teeth
    One more thin gypsy thief
    Well I see Jane's awake
    She sends her regard

    And what can I tell you my brother, my killer?
    What can I possibly say?
    I guess that I miss you. I guess I forgive you
    I'm glad you stood in my way

    If you ever come by here
    For Jane or for me
    Well, your enemy is sleeping
    And his woman is free

    Yes, and thanks for the trouble you took from her eyes
    I thought it was there for good so I never tried

    And Jane came by with a lock of your hair
    She said that you gave it to her
    That night that you planned to go clear

    Sincerely, L. Cohen

    I do not own music nor photo shown in this video.

    You got me singing
    Even tho’ the news is bad
    You got me singing
    The only song I ever had

    You got me singing
    Ever since the river died
    You got me thinking
    Of the places we could hide

    You got me singing
    Even though the world is gone
    You got me thinking
    I’d like to carry on

    You got me singing
    Even tho’ it all looks grim
    You got me singing
    The Hallelujah hymn

    You got me singing
    Like a prisoner in a jail
    You got me singing
    Like my pardon’s in the mail

    You got me wishing
    Our little love would last
    You got me thinking
    Like those people of the past

  • Leonard Cohen - Im Your Man

    4:30

    I'm Your Man by Leonard Cohen

    Album: I'm Your Man

    Year: 1988

    [Lyrics]

    If you want a lover
    I'll do anything you ask me to
    And if you want another kind of love
    I'll wear a mask for you
    If you want a partner
    Take my hand
    Or if you want to strike me down in anger
    Here I stand
    I'm your man

    If you want a boxer
    I will step into the ring for you
    And if you want a doctor
    I'll examine every inch of you
    If you want a driver
    Climb inside
    Or if you want to take me for a ride
    You know you can
    I'm your man

    Ah, the moon's too bright
    The chain's too tight
    The beast won't go to sleep
    I've been running through these promises to you
    That I made and I could not keep
    Ah but a man never got a woman back
    Not by begging on his knees
    Or I'd crawl to you baby
    And I'd fall at your feet
    And I'd howl at your beauty
    Like a dog in heat
    And I'd claw at your heart
    And I'd tear at your sheet
    I'd say please, please
    I'm your man

    And if you've got to sleep
    A moment on the road
    I will steer for you
    And if you want to work the street alone
    I'll disappear for you
    If you want a father for your child
    Or only want to walk with me a while
    Across the sand
    I'm your man

    If you want a lover
    I'll do anything you ask me to
    And if you want another kind of love
    I'll wear a mask for you

    Lyrics:

    Come over to the window, my little darling
    I'd like to try to read your palm
    I used to think I was some kind of Gypsy boy
    Before I let you take me home

    Now so long, Marianne, it's time that we began
    To laugh and cry and cry and laugh about it all again

    Well you know that I love to live with you
    But you make me forget so very much
    I forget to pray for the angels
    And then the angels forget to pray for us

    Now so long, Marianne, it's time that we began
    To laugh and cry and cry and laugh about it all again

    We met when we were almost young
    Deep in the green lilac park
    You held on to me like I was a crucifix
    As we went kneeling through the dark

    Oh so long, Marianne, it's time that we began
    To laugh and cry and cry and laugh about it all again

    Your letters they all say that you're beside me now
    Then why do I feel alone?
    I'm standing on a ledge and your fine spider web
    Is fastening my ankle to a stone

    Now so long, Marianne, it's time that we began
    To laugh and cry and cry and laugh about it all again

    For now I need your hidden love
    I'm cold as a new razor blade
    You left when I told you I was curious
    I never said that I was brave

    Oh so long, Marianne, it's time that we began
    To laugh and cry and cry and laugh about it all again

    Oh, you are really such a pretty one
    I see you've gone and changed your name again
    And just when I climbed this whole mountainside
    To wash my eyelids in the rain

    Oh so long, Marianne, it's time that we began
    To laugh and cry and cry and laugh about it all again

    Descrição

  • Leonard Cohen - Suzanne

    4:31

    Perhaps his most memorable song from Canadian poet/songwriter & performer Leonard Cohen. Cohen specified, notably in a BBC interview, that the song was about encountering Suzanne Verdal, the then wife of sculptor Armand Vaillancourt, in a Montreal setting. Indeed, many lines describe different elements of the city, including its river (the Saint Lawrence) and a little chapel near the harbour, called Notre-Dame-de-Bon-Secours (literally Our Lady of Good Help), which sits on the side of the harbour that faces the rising sun in the morning, as it is described in the song.

    Suzanne Verdal was interviewed by CBC News's The National in 2006 about the song. Verdal claims that she and Cohen never had sexual relations, contrary to what some interpretations of the song suggest. Cohen himself stated in a 1994 BBC interview that he only imagined having sex with her, as there was neither the opportunity nor inclination to actually go through with it. She says she has met Cohen twice since the song's initial popularity; once after a concert Cohen performed in the 1970s and once in passing in the 1990s when she danced for him, but Cohen did not speak to her (and possibly did not recognise her).

    In any case, its lyrics first appeared as the poem Suzanne Takes You Down in Cohen's 1966 book of poetry Parasites of Heaven, admittedly because of lack of new material (lyrics to a few other songs from his subsequent 1967 debut album were also printed in the book).

    Lyrics:

    Well, my friends are gone and my hair is grey
    I ache in the places where I used to play
    And I'm crazy for love but I'm not comin' on
    I'm just payin' my rent every day in the Tower of Song

    I said to Hank Williams: How lonely does it get?
    Hank Williams hasn't answered yet
    But I hear him coughing all night long
    Oh, a hundred floors above me in the Tower of Song

    I was born like this, I had no choice
    I was born with the gift of a golden voice
    And twenty-seven angels from the Great Beyond
    They tied me to this table right here in the Tower of Song

    So you can stick your little pins in that voodoo doll
    I'm very sorry, baby, it doesn't look like me at all
    I'm standin' by the window where the light is strong
    Ah, they don't let a woman kill you, not in the Tower of Song

    Now, you can say that I've grown bitter but of this you may be sure:
    The rich have got their channels in the bedrooms of the poor
    And there's a mighty Judgement comin' but I may be wrong
    You see, I hear these funny voices in the Tower of Song

    I see you standin' on the other side
    I don't know how the river got so wide
    I loved you, baby, way back when...
    And all the bridges are burnin' that we might've crossed
    But I feel so close to everything that we lost
    We'll never, we'll never have to lose it again

    Now, I bid you farewell, I don't know when I'll be back
    They're movin' us tomorrow to the tower down the track
    But you'll be hearin' from me, baby, long after I'm gone
    I'll be speakin' to you sweetly from a window in the Tower of Song

    Yeah, my friends are gone and my hair is grey
    I ache in the places where I used to play
    And I'm crazy for love but I'm not comin' on
    I'm just payin' my rent everyday in the Tower of Song

    LYRICS:

    Thanks for the dance
    I'm sorry you’re tired
    The evening has hardly begun
    Thanks for the dance
    Try to look inspired
    One two three, one two three one

    There’s a rose in your hair
    Your shoulders are bare
    You’ve been wearing this costume forever

    So turn up the music
    Pour out the wine
    Stop at the surface
    The surface is fine
    We don’t need to go any deeper

    Thanks for the dance
    I hear that we’re married
    One two three, one two three one
    Thanks for the dance
    And the baby you carried
    It was almost a daughter or a son

    And there’s nothing to do
    But to wonder if you
    Are as hopeless as me
    And as decent

    We’re joined in the spirit
    Joined at the hip
    Joined in the panic
    Wondering if
    We’ve come to some sort
    Of agreement

    It was fine it was fast
    We were first we were last
    In line at the Temple of Pleasure
    But the green was so green
    And the blue was so blue
    I was so I
    And you were so you
    The crisis was light
    As a feather

    Thanks for the dance
    It was hell, it was swell,
    It was fun
    Thanks for all the dances
    One two three, one two three one

    Lyrics:

    We find ourselves on different sides
    Of a line nobody drew
    Though it all may be one in the higher eye
    Down here where we live, it is two

    I, to my side call the meek and the mild
    You, to your side call the Word
    By virtue of suffering I claim to have won
    You claim to have never been heard

    Both of us say there are laws to obey
    Yeah, but frankly I don't like your tone
    You want to change the way I make love
    But I wanna leave it alone (alone, alone, alone)

    The pull of the moon, the thrust of the sun
    Thus the ocean is crossed
    The waters are blessed while a shadowy guest
    Kindles a light for the lost

    Both of us say there are laws to obey
    But frankly I don't like your tone
    You want to change the way I make love
    Yeah but I wanna leave it alone

    Down in the valley the famine goes on
    Famine up on the hill
    I say that you shouldn't, you couldn't, you can't
    You say that you must and you will

    You want to live where the suffering is
    I want to get out of town
    C'mon baby, give me a kiss
    Stop writing everything down

    Both of us say there are laws to obey
    Yeah, but frankly I don't like your tone
    You want to change the way I make love
    But I wanna leave it alone

    Both of us say there are laws to obey
    Frankly I don't like your tone
    You want to change the way I make love
    But I wanna leave it alone

    Lyrics:

    Now in Vienna there's ten pretty women
    There's a shoulder where Death comes to cry
    There's a lobby with nine hundred windows
    There's a tree where the doves go to die
    There's a piece that was torn from the morning
    And it hangs in the Gallery of Frost

    Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay
    Take this waltz, take this waltz
    Take this waltz with the clamp on it's jaws

    Oh I want you, I want you, I want you
    On a chair with a dead magazine
    In the cave at the tip of the lily
    In some hallway where love's never been
    On a bed where the moon has been sweating
    In a cry filled with footsteps and sand

    Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay
    Take this waltz, take this waltz
    Take its broken waist in your hand

    This waltz, this waltz, this waltz, this waltz
    With it's very own breath of brandy and Death
    Dragging it's tail in the sea

    There's a concert hall in Vienna
    Where your mouth had a thousand reviews
    There's a bar where the boys have stopped talking
    They've been sentenced to death by the blues
    Ah, but who is it climbs to your picture
    With a garland of freshly cut tears?

    Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay
    Take this waltz, take this waltz
    Take this waltz it's been dying for years

    There's an attic where children are playing
    Where I've got to lie down with you soon
    In a dream of Hungarian lanterns
    In the mist of some sweet afternoon
    And I'll see what you've chained to your sorrow
    All your sheep and your lilies of snow

    Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay
    Take this waltz, take this waltz
    With its I'll never forget you, you know!

    This waltz, this waltz, this waltz, this waltz ...
    With its very own breath of brandy and death
    Dragging its tail in the sea

    And I'll dance with you in Vienna
    I'll be wearing a river's disguise
    The hyacinth wild on my shoulder
    My mouth on the dew of your thighs
    And I'll bury my soul in a scrapbook
    With the photographs there, and the moss
    And I'll yield to the flood of your beauty
    My cheap violin and my cross
    And you'll carry me down on your dancing
    To the pools that you lift on your wrist

    Oh my love, Oh my love
    Take this waltz, take this waltz
    It's yours now. It's all that there is

    {Instrumental}

    Who in your merry merry month of May?
    Who by very slow decay?
    And who shall I say is calling?

    And who in her lonely slip?
    Who by barbiturate?
    Who in these realms of love?
    Who by something blunt?
    Who by avalanche?
    Who by powder?
    Who for his greed?
    Who for his hunger?
    And who shall I say is calling?

    And who by brave assent?
    Who by accident?
    Who in solitude?
    Who in this mirror?
    Who by his lady's command?
    Who by his own hand?
    Who in mortal chains?
    Who in power?

    Who in your merry merry month of May?

    Dance me to the end of love, dance me to the end of love
    Oh let me see your beauty when the witnesses are gone
    Let me feel you moving like they do in Babylon
    Show me slowly what I only know the limits of
    Oh dance me to the end of love, dance me to the end of love
    Dance me to the wedding now, dance me on and on
    Dance me very tenderly and dance me very long
    We're both of us beneath our love, we're both of us above
    Dance me to the end of love, dance me to the end of love
    Dance me to the children who are asking to be born
    Dance me through the curtains that our kisses have outworn
    Raise a tent of shelter now, though every thread is torn
    Dance me to the end of love
    Dance me to your beauty with a burning violin
    Dance me through the panic till I'm gathered safely in
    Touch me with your naked hand or touch me with your glove
    Dance me to the end of love, dance me to the end of love
    Dance me to the end of love

    Leonard Cohen - Bird on the Wire 1979

    Like a bird on the wire,
    Like a drunk in some old midnight choir
    I have tried in my way to be free.

    Like a worm on a hook,
    Like a monk bending over the book
    It was the shape, the shape of our love twisted me

    If I, if I have been unkind,
    I hope that you can just let it all go right on by
    If I, if I have been untrue
    It's just that I thought a lover had to be some kind of liar too

    (Instrumental)

    If I, if I have been unkind,
    I hope that you can just let it all go right on by
    If I, if I have been untrue
    I hope that you know by now it was never to you

    Like a little baby stillborn
    Like a beast with his horn
    I have torn everyone who reached out for me

    But I swear, I swear by this song
    I swear by all that I have done wrong
    I will make it all up to thee

    I saw a beggar he was leaning on his wooden crutch,
    he said to me, You must not ask for so much.
    And a pretty woman leaning in her darkened door,
    She cried to me, Hey, why not ask a little bit more?

    Oh like a bird on the wire,
    like a drunk in some old midnight choir
    I have tried in my way to be free

    Lyrics:

    Suzanne takes you down to her place near the river
    You can hear the boats go by
    You can spend the night beside her
    And you know that she's half crazy
    But that's why you want to be there
    And she feeds you tea and oranges
    That come all the way from China
    And just when you mean to tell her
    That you have no love to give her
    Then she gets you on her wavelength
    And she lets the river answer
    That you've always been her lover
    And you want to travel with her
    And you want to travel blind
    And you know that she will trust you
    For you've touched her perfect body with your mind.
    And Jesus was a sailor
    When he walked upon the water
    And he spent a long time watching
    From his lonely wooden tower
    And when he knew for certain
    Only drowning men could see him
    He said All men will be sailors then
    Until the sea shall free them
    But he himself was broken
    Long before the sky would open
    Forsaken, almost human
    He sank beneath your wisdom like a stone
    And you want to travel with him
    And you want to travel blind
    And you think maybe you'll trust him
    For he's touched your perfect body with his mind.

    Now Suzanne takes your hand
    And she leads you to the river
    She is wearing rags and feathers
    From Salvation Army counters
    And the sun pours down like honey
    On our lady of the harbour
    And she shows you where to look
    Among the garbage and the flowers
    There are heroes in the seaweed
    There are children in the morning
    They are leaning out for love
    And they will lean that way forever
    While Suzanne holds the mirror
    And you want to travel with her
    And you want to travel blind
    And you know that you can trust her
    For she's touched your perfect body with her mind.

    Lyrics:

    Give me back my broken night
    My mirrored room, my secret life
    It's lonely here
    There's no one left to torture
    Give me absolute control
    Over every living soul
    And lie beside me, baby
    That's an order!

    Give me crack and anal sex
    Take the only tree that's left
    And stuff it up the hole
    In your culture
    Give me back the Berlin wall
    Give me Stalin and St. Paul
    I've seen the future, brother
    It is murder

    Things are going to slide (slide) in all directions
    Won't be nothing (won't be)
    Nothing you can measure anymore
    The blizzard, the blizzard of the world
    Has crossed the threshold
    And it has overturned
    The order of the soul

    When they said (they said) repent (repent), repent (repent)
    I wonder what they meant
    When they said (they said) repent (repent), repent (repent)
    I wonder what they meant
    When they said (they said) repent (repent), repent (repent)
    I wonder what they meant

    You don't know me from the wind
    You never will, you never did
    I'm the little Jew
    Who wrote the Bible
    I've seen the nations rise and fall
    I've heard their stories, heard them all
    But love's the only engine
    Of survival

    Your servant here, he has been told
    To say it clear, to say it cold
    It's over, it ain't going any further
    And now the wheels of heaven stop
    You feel the devil's riding crop
    Get ready for the future: It is murder

    Things are going to slide (slide) in all directions
    Won't be nothing (won't be)
    Nothing you can measure anymore
    The blizzard, the blizzard of the world
    Has crossed the threshold
    And it has overturned the order of the soul

    When they said (they said) repent (repent), repent (repent)
    I wonder what they meant
    When they said (they said) repent (repent), repent (repent)
    I wonder what they meant
    When they said (they said) repent (repent), repent (repent)
    I wonder what they meant

    There'll be the breaking of the ancient Western code
    Your private life will suddenly explode
    There'll be phantoms, there'll be fires on the road
    And the white man dancing
    You'll see your woman hanging upside down
    Her features covered by her fallen gown
    And all the lousy little poets coming round
    Trying to sound like Charlie Manson
    Yeah the white man dancing

    Give me back the Berlin wall
    Give me Stalin and St. Paul
    Give me Christ
    Or give me Hiroshima
    Destroy another fetus now
    We don't like children anyhow
    I've seen the future, baby: It is murder

    Things are going to slide (slide) in all directions
    Won't be nothing (won't be), nothing you can measure anymore
    The blizzard, the blizzard of the world
    Has crossed the threshold
    And it has overturned
    The order of the soul

    When they said (they said) repent (repent)
    Repent (repent)
    I wonder what they meant
    When they said (they said) repent (repent), repent (repent)
    I wonder what they meant
    When they said (they said) repent (repent)
    Repent (repent)
    I wonder what they meant
    When they said (they said) repent (repent)

    Lyrics:
    Everybody knows that the dice are loaded
    Everybody rolls with their fingers crossed
    Everybody knows the war is over
    Everybody knows the good guys lost
    Everybody knows the fight was fixed
    The poor stay poor, the rich get rich
    That's how it goes
    Everybody knows

    Sözleri:

    Güzelliğinle danset benimle şiddetli bir viyolin eşliğinde
    Telaş içinde danset benimle güvenlice buluşana dek
    Kaldır beni bir zeytin dalı gibi ve eve doğru giden güvercinim ol
    Danset benimle aşkın sonuna dek
    Danset benimle aşkın sonuna dek

    Güzelliğini görmeme izin ver seyirciler gittiği zaman
    Oyununu görmeme izin ver babylonda yaptıkları gibi
    Yavaşça göster bana sınırlarının ne olduğunu
    Danset benimle aşkın sonuna dek
    Danset benimle aşkın sonuna dek
    Düğünde şimdi ben de, danset benimle ve danset
    Danset benimle usulca ve danset benimle çok uzun
    Biz ikimiz aşkımızın altındayız, biz ikimiz yukarısında
    Danset benimle aşkın sonuna dek
    Danset benimle aşkın sonuna dek
    Danset benimle doğmayı bekleyen çocuklara kadar
    Danset benimle öpücüklerimizin eskittiği son perde içinde
    Sığınacak bir çadır kur şimdi, her ipliği yırtılmış olsa da
    Danset benimle aşkın sonuna dek

    Güzelliğinle danset benimle şiddetli bir viyolin eşliğinde
    Telaş içinde danset benimle güvenlice buluşana dek
    Dokun bana çıplak ellerinle ya da dokun bana eldiveninle
    Danset benimle aşkın sonuna dek
    Danset benimle aşkın sonuna dek
    Danset benimle aşkın sonuna dek

    Lyrics:

    Baby, I've been waiting
    I've been waiting night and day
    I didn't see the time
    Yeah I waited half my life away
    There were lots of invitations
    And I know you sent me some
    But I was waiting
    For the miracle, for the miracle to come

    I know you really loved me
    But, you see, my hands were tied
    I know it must have hurt you
    It must have hurt your pride
    To have to stand beneath my window
    With your bugle and your drum
    And me I'm up there waiting
    For the miracle, for the miracle to come

    Ah I don't believe you'd like it
    You wouldn't like it here
    There ain't no entertainment
    And the judgements are severe
    The Maestro says it's Mozart
    But it sounds like bubble gum
    When you're waiting
    For the miracle, for the miracle to come

    Waiting for the miracle
    There's nothing left to do
    I haven't been this happy
    Since the end of World War II

    Nothing left to do
    When you know that you've been taken
    Nothing left to do
    When you're begging for a crumb
    Nothing left to do
    When you've got to go on waiting
    Waiting for the miracle to come

    Yeah I dreamed about you, baby
    It was just the other night
    Most of you was naked
    Ah but some of you was light
    The sands of time were falling
    From your fingers and your thumb
    And you were waiting
    For the miracle, for the miracle to come

    Ah baby, let's get married
    We've been alone too long
    Let's be alone together
    Let's see if we're that strong
    Yeah let's do something crazy
    Something absolutely wrong
    While we're waiting
    For the miracle, for the miracle to come

    Nothing left to do
    When you know you've been taken
    Nothing left to do
    When you're begging for a crumb
    Nothing left to do
    When you've got to go on waiting
    Waiting for the miracle to come

    When you've fallen on the highway
    And you're lying in the rain
    And they ask you how you're doing
    Of course you'll say you can't complain --
    If you're squeezed for information
    That's when you've got to play it dumb:
    You just say you're out there waiting
    For the miracle, for the miracle to come

    Lyrics:

    I loved you in the morning, our kisses deep and warm
    Your hair upon the pillow like a sleepy golden storm
    Yes, many loved before us, I know that we are not new
    In city and in forest they smiled like me and you
    But now it's come to distances and both of us must try
    Your eyes are soft with sorrow
    Hey, that's no way to say goodbye

    I'm not looking for another as I wander in my time
    Walk me to the corner, our steps will always rhyme
    You know my love goes with you as your love stays with me
    It's just the way it changes, like the shoreline and the sea
    But let's not talk of love or chains and things we can't untie
    Your eyes are soft with sorrow
    Hey, that's no way to say goodbye

    I loved you in the morning, our kisses deep and warm
    Your hair upon the pillow like a sleepy golden storm
    Yes many loved before us, I know that we are not new
    In city and in forest they smiled like me and you
    But let's not talk of love or chains and things we can't untie
    Your eyes are soft with sorrow
    Hey, that's no way to say goodbye

    I loved your face, I loved your hair
    Your T-shirts and your eveningwear
    As for the world, the job, the war
    I ditched them all to love you more

    And now you’re gone, now you’re gone
    As if there ever was a you
    Who broke the heart and made it new
    Who’s moving on, who’s kidding who

    I loved your moods, I love the way
    They threaten every single day
    Your beauty ruled me, though I knew
    Twas more hormonal than the view

    And now you’re gone, now you’re gone
    As if there ever was a you
    Queen of lilac, queen of blue
    Who’s moving on, who’s kidding who

    I loved your face, I loved your hair
    Your T-shirts and your eveningwear
    As for the world, the job, the war
    I ditched them all to love you more

    And now you’re gone, now you’re gone
    As if there ever was a you
    Who held me dying, pulled me through
    Who’s moving on, who’s kidding who

    LYRICS:

    I can make the hills
    The system is shot
    I'm living on pills
    For which I thank G-d
    My animal howls
    My angel’s upset
    But I'm not allowed
    A trace of regret
    For someone will use
    The thing I could not be
    My heart will be hurt impersonally
    She’ll step on the path
    She’ll see what I mean
    My will cut in half
    And freedom between
    For less than a second
    Our lives will collide
    The endless suspended
    The door open wide
    And she will be born
    To someone like you
    What I left undone
    She will certainly do
    I know she is coming
    And I know she will look
    And that is the longing
    And this is the hook
    I can’t make the hills
    The system is shot
    I'm living on pills
    For which I thank G-d
    My page was too white
    My ink was too thin
    The day wouldn’t write
    What the night penciled in
    But I know she is coming
    And I know she will look
    And that is the longing
    And this is the hook
    (I know she is coming)
    And I know she will look
    (that is the longing)
    And this is the hook
    I can make the hills
    The system is shot
    I'm living on pills
    For which I thank G-d
    I sailed like a swan
    I sank like a rock
    But time is long gone
    Past my laughingstock
    And I can make the hills
    The system is shot
    I'm living on pills
    For which I thank G-d

    If you want a lover
    I'll do anything you ask me to
    And if you want another kind of love
    I'll wear a mask for you
    If you want a partner
    Take my hand
    Or if you want to strike me down in anger
    Here I stand
    I'm your man
    If you want a boxer
    I will step into the ring for you
    And if you want a doctor
    I'll examine every inch of you
    If you want a driver
    Climb inside
    Or if you want to take me for a ride
    You know you can
    I'm your man
    Ah, the moon's too bright
    The chain's too tight
    The beast won't go to sleep
    I've been runnin' through, these promises to you
    That I made and I could not keep
    Ah but a man never got a woman back
    Not by beggin' on his knees
    Or I'd crawl to you baby
    And I'd fall at your feet
    And I'd howl at your beauty
    Like a dog in heat
    And I'd claw at your heart
    And I'd tear at your sheet
    I'd say please
    I'm your man
    And if you've got to sleep
    A moment on the road
    I will steer for you
    And if you want to work the street alone
    I'll disappear for you
    If you want a father for your child
    Or only wanna walk with me a while
    Across the sand
    I'm your man
    If you want a lover
    I'll do anything you ask me to
    And if you want another kind of love

  • Leonard Cohen - Take this waltz

    5:58

    Now in Vienna there's ten pretty women
    There's a shoulder where Death comes to cry
    There's a lobby with nine hundred windows
    There's a tree where the doves go to die
    There's a piece that was torn from the morning
    And it hangs in the Gallery of Frost
    Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay
    Take this waltz, take this waltz
    Take this waltz with the clamp on its jaws
    Oh I want you, I want you, I want you
    On a chair with a dead magazine
    In the cave at the tip of the lily
    In some hallways where love's never been
    On a bed where the moon has been sweating
    In a cry filled with footsteps and sand
    Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay
    Take this waltz, take this waltz
    Take its broken waist in your hand

    This waltz, this waltz, this waltz, this waltz
    With its very own breath of brandy and Death
    Dragging its tail in the sea

    There's a concert hall in Vienna
    Where your mouth had a thousand reviews
    There's a bar where the boys have stopped talking
    They've been sentenced to death by the blues
    Ah, but who is it climbs to your picture
    With a garland of freshly cut tears?
    Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay
    Take this waltz, take this waltz
    Take this waltz it's been dying for years

    There's an attic where children are playing
    Where I've got to lie down with you soon
    In a dream of Hungarian lanterns
    In the mist of some sweet afternoon
    And I'll see what you've chained to your sorrow
    All your sheep and your lilies of snow
    Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay
    Take this waltz, take this waltz
    With its I'll never forget you, you know!

    This waltz, this waltz, this waltz, this waltz ...

    And I'll dance with you in Vienna
    I'll be wearing a river's disguise
    The hyacinth wild on my shoulder,
    My mouth on the dew of your thighs
    And I'll bury my soul in a scrapbook,
    With the photographs there, and the moss
    And I'll yield to the flood of your beauty
    My cheap violin and my cross
    And you'll carry me down on your dancing
    To the pools that you lift on your wrist
    Oh my love, Oh my love
    Take this waltz, take this waltz
    It's yours now. It's all that there is.

    Lyrics:

    I met a woman long ago
    Her hair the black that black can go
    Are you a teacher of the heart?
    Soft she answered no

    I met a girl across the sea
    Her hair the gold that gold can be
    Are you a teacher of the heart?
    Yes, but not for thee

    I met a man who lost his mind
    In some lost place I had to find
    Follow me the wise man said
    But he walked behind

    I walked into a hospital
    Where none was sick and none was well
    When at night the nurses left
    I could not walk at all

    Morning came and then came noon
    Dinner time a scalpel blade
    Lay beside my silver spoon

    Some girls wander by mistake
    Into the mess that scalpels make
    Are you the teachers of my heart?
    We teach old hearts to break

    One morning I woke up alone
    The hospital and the nurses gone
    Have I carved enough my Lord?
    Child, you are a bone

    I ate and ate and ate
    No, I did not miss a plate, well
    How much do these suppers cost?
    We'll take it out in hate

    I spent my hatred everyplace
    On every work on every face
    Someone gave me wishes
    And I wished for an embrace

    Several girls embraced me, then
    I was embraced by men
    Is my passion perfect?
    No, do it once again

    I was handsome, I was strong
    I knew the words of every song
    Did my singing please you?
    No, the words you sang were wrong

    Who is it whom I address?
    Who takes down what I confess?
    Are you the teachers of my heart?
    We teach old hearts to rest

    Oh teachers, are my lessons done?
    I cannot do another one
    They laughed and laughed and said, Well child
    Are your lessons done?
    Are your lessons done?
    Are your lessons done?

  • Leonard COHEN - Tower of Song

    7:17

    From Cohen’s “London Live” (2009); also included in “I’m Your Man” (1988). The recording here is a bit different given the time span ( he will soon turn eighty vs being in his mid-fifties in the first recording). It is also different because it was done at a live concert while on a world tour as opposed to a studio recording.

    The “tower of song” represents the whole area of music (i.e. singing, composing,etc) and the people who are in this business.

    Cohen incorporates themes of aging (grey hair), loneliness (looking out the window, burning bridges), melancholy (so damn close to everything lost) , irony (the golden voice) and sexuality (crazy for love, not coming on),and regret (..don’t know how the bridges got this wide).

    Some might say that this is a bit of a stretch in interpreting these lyrics. As Cohen says about judgement, “I may be wrong”. One thing’s for sure: parts of his poem show that he can be humorous and light-hearted, not just dark and depressing.
