Versuri Leonard Cohen - Master Song



I believe that you heard your master sing 
When I was sick in bed 
I suppose that he told you everything 
That I keep locked away in my head 
 
Your master took you traveling 
Well at least that's what you said 
And now do you come back to bring 
Your prisoner wine and bread? 
 
You met him at some temple 
Where they take your clothes at the door 
He was just a numberless man in a chair 
Who'd just come back from the war 
 
And you wrap up his tired face in your hair 
And he hands you the apple core 
Then he touches your lips now so suddenly bare 
Of all the kisses we put on some time before 
 
And he gave you a German Shepherd to walk 
With a collar of leather and nails 
And he never once made you explain or talk 
About all of the little details 
 
Such as who had a word and who had a rock 
And who had you through the mails 
Now your love is a secret all over the block 
And it never stops not even when your master fails 
 
And he took you up in his airplane 
Which he flew without any hands 
And you cruised above the ribbons of rain 
That drove the crowd from the stands 
 
Then he killed the lights in a lonely lane 
And, an ape with angel glands 
Erased the final wisps of pain 
With the music of rubber bands 
 
And now I hear your master sing 
You kneel for him to come 
His body is a golden string 
That your body is hanging from 
 
His body is a golden string 
My body has grown numb 
Oh now you hear your master sing 
Your shirt is all undone 
 
And will you kneel beside this bed 
That we polished so long ago 
Before your master chose instead 
To make my bed of snow? 
 
Your eyes are wild and your knuckles are red 
And you're speaking far too low 
No I can't make out what your master said 
Before he made you go 
 
Then I think you're playing far too rough 
For a lady who's been to the moon 
I've lain by this window long enough 
To get used to an empty room 
 
And your love is some dust in an old man's cough 
Who is tapping his foot to a tune 
And your thighs are a ruin, you want too much 
Let's say, you came back some time too soon 
 
I loved your master perfectly 
I taught him all that he knew 
He was starving in some deep mystery 
Like a man who is sure what is true 
 
And I sent you to him with my guarantee 
I could teach him something new 
And I taught him how you would long for me 
No matter what he said no matter what you'd do 
 
I believe that you heard your master sing 
While I was sick in bed 
I'm sure that he told you everything 
I must keep locked away in my head 
 
Your master took you traveling 
Well at least that's what you said 
And now do you come back to bring 
Your prisoner wine and bread?
