Versuri Leonard Cohen - The Window



Now why do you stand by the window 
Abandoned to beauty and pride 
The thorn of the night in your bosom 
The spear of the age in your side? 
 
Lost in the rages of fragrance 
Lost in the rags of remorse 
Lost in the waves of the sickness 
That loosens the high silver nerves 
 
Oh chosen love, oh frozen love 
Oh tangle of matter and ghost 
Oh darling of angels, demons and saints 
And the whole broken-hearted host, gentle this soul 
 
And come forth from your cloud of unknowing 
And kiss the cheek of the moon 
The new Jerusalem glowing 
Why tarry all night in this ruin? 
 
And leave no word of discomfort 
Or leave no observer to mourn 
But climb on your tears and be silent 
Like the rose on its ladder of thorns 
 
Oh chosen love, oh frozen love 
Oh tangle of matter and ghost 
Oh darling of angels, demons and saints 
And the whole broken-hearted host, gentle this soul 
 
Then lay your rose on the fire 
The fire give up to the sun 
The sun give over to splendor 
In the arms of the high holy one 
 
For the holy one dreams of a letter 
Dreams of a letter's death 
Bless thee continuous stutter 
Of the word being made into flesh 
 
Oh chosen love, oh frozen love 
Oh tangle of matter and ghost 
Oh darling of angels, demons and saints 
And the whole broken-hearted host, gentle this soul, gentle this soul 
 
Oh chosen love, oh frozen love 
Oh tangle of matter and ghost 
Oh darling of angels, demons and saints 
And the whole broken-hearted host, gentle this soul, gentle this soul
