leonard coheni viimaselt albumilt

i love to speak with Leonard
he’s a sportsman and a shepherd
he’s a lazy bastard
living in a suit
but he does say what I tell him

even though it isn’t welcome
he just doesn’t have the freedom
to refuse
he will speak these words of wisdom

like a sage, a man of vision
though he knows he’s really nothing
but the brief elaboration of a tube

going home
without my sorrow
going home 
sometime tomorrow
going home
to where it’s better
than before
going home

without my burden
going home
behind the curtain
going home
without the costume
that I wore

he wants to write a love son
g
an anthem of forgiving
a manual for living with defeat
a cry above the suffering
a sacrifice recovering
but that isn’t what I need him
to complete
i want him to be certain
that he doesn’t have a burden
that he doesn’t need a vision
that he only has permission
to do my instant bidding
which is to say what I have told him

Leonard Cohen tekitab meeleliigutust, pisaraid peaaegu. Ta saab varsti 80 ja kuigi ma olen vahepeal temast vähe mõelnud, siis viimastel aegadel mõtlen ma temale jälle palju. Ta on nii rahulik ja ilus.
Ta ütleb asju, mille puhul ma esialgu arvan, et see kõlab nii ilusti, et võib sama hästi tõsi olla. 
Siis elan natuke ja kogen natuke ja mõistan, tema luule pole ainult ilusate sõnade kokkukõla, vaid kõige täpsemini sõnastatud tõde.  

One thought on “leonard coheni viimaselt albumilt

  1. Oo jaaa! Ja kui ta siis lihtsalt ütleb midagi… Laulude vahele. Siis ükskõik, mis see on, see kõlab nagu luule. Selline luule, mida ma mitte ainult ei kuula ega kuule, vaid tajud selgrooga. Sõnulkirjeldamatu.Igatahes aitäh lingi eest, ma lähen nüüd ja naudin 🙂 Ja tervisi Tallinnast! Ingrid
