Versuri Leonard Cohen - Take This Longing



Many men have loved the bells you fastened to the rein 
And everyone who wanted you 
They found what they will always want again 
Your beauty lost to you yourself just as it was lost to them 
 
Oh take this longing from my tongue 
Whatever useless things these hands have done 
Let me see your beauty broken down 
Like you would do for one you love 
 
Your body like a searchlight my poverty revealed 
I would like to try your charity 
Until you cry, now you must try my greed 
And everything depends upon how near you sleep to me 
 
Just take this longing from my tongue 
All the lonely things my hands have done 
Let me see your beauty broken down 
Like you would do for one your love 
 
Hungry as an archway through which the troops have passed 
I stand in ruins behind you 
With your winter clothes, your broken sandal straps 
I love to see you naked over there especially from the back 
 
Oh take this longing from my tongue 
All the useless things my hands have done 
Untie for me your hired blue gown 
Like you would do for one that you love 
 
You're faithful to the better man, I'm afraid that he left 
So let me judge your love affair in this very room 
Where I have sentenced mine to death 
I'll even wear these old laurel leaves that he's shaken from his head 
 
Just take this longing from my tongue 
All the useless things my hands have done 
Let me see your beauty broken down 
Like you would do for one you love 
 
Like you would do for one you love
