Versuri Leonard Cohen - By the Rivers Dark



By the river's dark, I wandered on 
I lived my life in Babylon 
 
And I did forget my holy song 
And I had no strength in Babylon 
 
By the river's dark, where I could not see 
Who was waiting there, who was hunting me? 
 
And he cut my lip and he cut my heart 
So I could not drink from the river dark 
 
And he covered me and I saw within 
My lawless heart and my wedding ring 
 
I did not know and I could not see 
Who was waiting there, who was hunting me? 
 
By the river's dark, I panicked on 
I belonged at last to Babylon 
 
Then he struck my heart with a deadly force 
And he said, "This heart, it is not yours" 
 
And he gave the wind, my wedding ring 
And he circled us with everything 
 
By the river's dark in a wounded dawn 
I live my life in Babylon 
 
Though I take my song from a withered limb 
Both song and tree they sing for him 
 
Be the truth unsaid and the blessing gone 
If I forget my Babylon 
 
I did not know and I could not see 
Who was waiting there, who was hunting me? 
 
By the river's dark where it all goes on 
By the river's dark in Babylon
