Versuri Leonard Cohen - One of Us Cannot Be Wrong



I lit a thin green candle to make you jealous of me 
But the room just filled up with mosquitoes 
They heard that my body was free 
Then I took the dust from a long and a sleepless night 
And I, I put it in your little shoe 
And then I confess that I tortured the dress 
That you wore for the world to look through 
 
I showed my heart to the doctor, he said I'd just have to quit 
Then he wrote himself a prescription 
Your name was mentioned in it 
Then he locked himself into a library shelf 
Oh, with the all of the details of our, our shabby honeymoon 
And I hear from his nurse, yeah, that he's gotten much worse 
And his, his practice has fallen to ruin 
 
And I heard of the saint who had loved you 
Yeah, I studied all night in his school 
He taught that the duty of lovers is to tarnish the, the Golden Rule 
And just when I was sure that his teachings were pure 
He went and drowned himself in the pool 
His body is gone, yeah, but back here on the lawn 
His spirit continues to drool 
 
An Eskimo showed me that movie he'd recently taken of you 
Why, the poor man could hardly stop shivering 
His lips, his fingers were blue 
I suppose he froze when the wind tore off your clothes 
And I, I guess he just never got warm 
But you're standin' there so nice in your blizzard of ice 
Oh, please let me come into the storm 
 
I suppose that he froze when the wind tore off your clothes 
And I, I guess he just never got warm 
But you stand there so nice in your blizzard of ice 
Oh, please let me come into, come into the storm
