Versuri Leonard Cohen - The Stranger Song



It's true that all the men you knew were dealers 
Who said they were through with dealing 
Every time you gave them shelter 
I know that kind of man 
It's hard to hold the hand of anyone 
Who is reaching for the sky just to surrender 
Who is reaching for the sky just to surrender 
 
And then sweeping up the jokers that he left behind 
You find he did not leave you very much not even laughter 
Like any dealer he was watching for the card 
That is so high and wild 
He'll never need to deal another 
He was just some Joseph looking for a manger 
He was just some Joseph looking for a manger 
 
And then leaning on your window sill 
He'll say one day you caused his will 
To weaken with your love and warmth and shelter 
And then taking from his wallet 
An old schedule of trains, he'll say 
I told you when I came, I was a stranger 
I told you when I came, I was a stranger 
 
But now another stranger seems 
To want you to ignore his dreams 
As though they were the burden of some other 
Oh you've seen that man before 
His golden arm dispatching cards 
But now it's rusted from the elbow to the finger 
And he wants to trade the game he plays for shelter 
Yes he wants to trade the game he knows for shelter 
 
Ah you hate to watch another tired man 
Lay down his hand 
Like he was giving up the holy game of poker 
And while he talks his dreams to sleep 
You notice there's a highway 
That is curling up like smoke above his shoulder 
It is curling just like smoke above his shoulder 
 
You tell him to come in sit down 
But something makes you turn around 
But door is open, you can't close your shelter 
You try the handle of the road 
It opens do not be afraid 
It's you my love, you who are the stranger 
And it's you my love, you who are the stranger 
 
Well, I've been waiting, I was sure 
We'd meet between the trains we're waiting for 
I think it's time to board another 
Please understand, I never had a secret chart 
To get me to the heart of this or any other matter 
When he talks like this, you don't know what he's after 
When he speaks like this, you don't know what he's after 
 
Let's meet tomorrow if you choose 
Upon the shore, beneath the bridge 
That they are building on some endless river 
Then he leaves the platform for the sleeping car that's warm 
You realize, he's only advertising one more shelter 
And it comes to you, he never was a stranger 
And you say, "Okay the bridge or someplace later" 
 
And then sweeping up the jokers that he left behind 
You find he did not leave you very much not even laughter 
Like any dealer he was watching for the card 
That is so high and wild 
He'll never need to deal another 
He was just some Joseph looking for a manger 
He was just some Joseph looking for a manger 
 
And leaning on your window sill 
He'll say one day you caused his will 
To weaken with your love and warmth and shelter 
And then taking from his wallet 
An old schedule of trains, he'll say 
I told you when I came, I was a stranger 
I told you when I came, I was a stranger 
I told you when I came I was a stranger
