Versuri Leonard Cohen - Joan of Arc



Now the flames they followed Joan of Arc 
As she came riding through the dark 
No moon to keep her Armour bright 
Then no man to get her through this darkest very smoky night 
 
She said, "I'm tired of the war 
I want the kind of work I had before 
With a wedding dress or something white 
To wear upon my swollen appetite" 
 
Well, I'm glad to to hear you talk this way 
You see I've watched you riding all most every single day 
And theres something in me yearns to win 
Such a very cold and such a very lonesome heroine 
 
?Well then, who are you?" she sternly spoke 
To the one beneath the smoke 
"Why, I'm, I'm fire," he replied 
"And I love your solitude, how I love your sense of pride" 
 
"Well then fire, make your body cold 
I'm gonna give you mine to hold" 
Saying this she climbed inside 
To be his one, to be his only bride 
 
It was deep into his fiery heart 
He took the dust of a Joan of Arc 
And high above all these assembled wedding guests 
He hung the ashes of her very lovely wedding dress 
 
It was deep deep into his fiery heart 
That he took the dust of all precious Joan of Arc 
Then she clearly clearly understood 
If if he was fire, oh she must be wood 
 
I saw her wince, I saw her cry 
I saw the glory in her eye 
Myself I long, I long for love and light 
But must it come so cruel, and must it must it be so very bright?
