Versuri Leonard Cohen - Suzanne



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, she's half crazy 
 
It's why you want to be there 
She feeds you tea and oranges 
That come all the way from China 
 
And just when you mean to tell her 
You have no love to give her 
She gets you on her wavelength 
And she lets the river answer 
You've always been her lover 
 
And you want to travel with her 
And you want to travel blind 
And know she will trust you 
For you've touched her perfect body with your mind 
 
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 
You want to travel blind 
And you know he will find you 
For he's touched your perfect body with his mind 
 
Suzanne takes your hand now 
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, our lady of the harbor 
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 
You want to travel blind 
And you know she'll find you 
For she's touched your perfect body with her mind
