In My Secret Life - Leonard Cohen



"In My Secret Life"
Leonard Cohen

I saw you this morning.
You were moving so fast.
Can't seem to loosen my grip
On the past.
And I miss you so much.
There's no one in sight.
And we're still making love
In My Secret Life.

I smile when I'm angry.
I cheat and I lie.
I do what I have to do
To get by.
But I know what is wrong,
And I know what is right.
And I'd die for the truth
In My Secret Life.

Hold on, hold on, my brother.
My sister, hold on tight.
I finally got my orders.
I'll be marching through the morning,
Marching through the night,
Moving cross the borders
Of My Secret Life.

Looked through the paper.
Makes you want to cry.
Nobody cares if the people
Live or die.
And the dealer wants you thinking
That it's either black or white.
Thank G-d it's not that simple
In My Secret Life.

I bite my lip.
I buy what I'm told:
From the latest hit,
To the wisdom of old.
But I'm always alone.
And my heart is like ice.
And it's crowded and cold
In My Secret Life.

o grande Cohen!

Uma das minhas preferidas a par e passo com "Chelsea Hotel #2" ou "Thousand Kisses Deep"

Também gosto muito deste cantor/autor. Usa um estilo que, como todos os estilos, se pode tornar algo repetitivo, ou seja, tem uma marca muito forte dele. Canta como um profeta solene.Mas tem algumas canções notáveis, ou seja, verdadeiramente criadoras, surpreendentes, neste mundo tão caótico e tão cheio de porcarias comerciais, que é o da música pop...
