Versuri Leonard Cohen - The Butcher



I came upon a butcher 
He was slaughtering a lamb 
I accused him there 
With his tortured lamb 
He said, "Listen to me, child 
I am what I am 
And you, you are my only son" 
 
Well, I found a silver needle 
I put it into my arm 
It did some good 
Did some harm 
But the nights were cold 
And it almost kept me warm 
How come the night is long? 
 
I saw some flowers growing up 
Where that lamb fell down 
Was I supposed to praise my Lord? 
Make some kind of joyful sound 
He said, "Listen, listen to me now 
I go round and round 
And you, you are my only child" 
 
Do not leave me now 
Do not leave me now 
I'm broken down 
From a recent fall 
Blood upon my body 
And ice upon my soul 
Lead on my son, is your world
