Versuri Leonard Cohen - Field Commander Cohen



Field Commander Cohen 
He was our most important spy 
Wounded in the line of duty 
Parachuting acid into diplomatic cocktail parties 
Urging Fidel Castro to abandon fields and castles 
 
Leave it all and like a man 
Come back to nothing special 
Such as waiting rooms and ticket lines 
Silver bullet suicides and messianic ocean tides 
And racial roller coaster rides 
And other forms of boredom, advertised as poetry 
 
I know you need your sleep now 
I know your life's been hard 
But many men are falling 
Where you promised to stand guard 
 
I never asked but I heard 
You cast your lot along with the poor 
But then I overheard your prayer 
That you be this and nothing more 
 
Than just some grateful faithful woman's 
Favorite singing millionaire 
The patron Saint of Envy and the grocer of despair 
Working for the Yankee dollar 
 
I know you need your sleep now 
I know your life's been hard 
But many men are falling 
Where you promised to stand guard 
 
Ah, lover come and lie with me 
If my lover is who you are 
And be your sweetest self awhile 
Until I ask for more, my child 
 
Then let the other selves be one, yeah 
Let them manifest and come 
'Til every taste is on the tongue 
'Til love is pierced and love is hung 
And every kind of freedom done 
 
Then, oh, my love, oh, my love 
Oh, my love, oh, my love 
Oh, my love, oh, my love
