Versuri Leonard Cohen - Came So Far for Beauty



I came so far for beauty 
I left so much behind 
My patience and my family 
My masterpiece unsigned 
 
I thought I'd be rewarded 
For such a lonely choice 
And surely, she would answer 
To such a very hopeless voice 
 
I practiced on my sainthood 
I gave to one and all 
But the rumours of my virtue 
They moved her not at all 
 
Changed my style to silver 
Changed my clothes to black 
And where I would surrender 
And now I would attack 
 
I stormed the old casino 
For the money and the flesh 
And I myself decided 
What was rotten and what was fresh 
 
Men to do my bidding 
And broken bones to teach 
The value of my pardon 
The shadow of my reach 
 
But no, could not touch her 
With such a heavy hand 
Her star beyond my order 
Her nakedness unmanned 
 
I came so far for beauty 
I left so much behind 
My patience and my family 
My masterpiece unsigned
