Versuri Leonard Cohen - Avalanche

Well, I stepped into an avalanche, it covered up my soul 
When I am not this hunchback that you see, I sleep beneath the golden hill 
You who wish to conquer pain, you must learn, learn to serve me well 
You strike my side by accident as you go down for your gold 
The cripple here that you clothe and feed is neither starved nor cold 
He does not ask for your company, not at the center, the center of the world 
When I am on a pedestal, you did not raise me there 
Your laws do not compel me to kneel grotesque and bare 
I myself am the pedestal for this ugly hump at which you stare 
You who wish to conquer pain, you must learn what makes me kind 
The crumbs of love that you offer me, they're the crumbs I've left behind 
Your pain is no credential here, it's just the shadow, shadow of my wound 
I have begun to long for you, I who have no greed 
I have begun to ask for you, I who have no need 
You say you've gone away from me but I can feel you when you breathe 
Do not dress in those rags for me, I know you are not poor 
You don't love me quite so fiercely now when you know that you are not sure 
It is your turn, beloved, it is your flesh that I wear
