Versuri Leonard Cohen - Humbled in Love



Do you remember all of those pledges 
That we pledged in the passionate night 
Ah, they're soiled now, they're torn at the edges 
Like moths on a still yellow light 
 
No penance serves to renew them 
No massive transfusions of trust 
Why not even revenge can undo them 
So twisted these vows and so crushed 
 
And you say you've been humbled in love 
 
Cut down in your love 
Forced to kneel in the mud next to me 
Ah, but why so bitterly turn from the one 
Who kneels there as deeply as thee 
 
Children have takes these pledges 
They have ferried them out of the past 
Oh, beyond all the graves and the hedges 
Where love must go hiding at last 
 
And here where there is no description 
Oh, here in the moment at hand 
No sinner need rise up forgiven 
No victim need limp to the stand 
 
And you say you've been humbled in love 
 
And look dear heart, look at the virgin 
Look how she welcomes him into her gown 
Yes, and mark how the stranger's cold Armour 
Dissolves like a star falling down 
 
Why trade this vision for desire 
When you may have them both 
You will never see a man this naked 
I will never hold a woman this close 
 
And you say you've been humbled in love
