Nueva canci贸n de Leonard Cohen: 'Going home'

'OLD IDEAS' A LA VENTA EL 31 DE ENERO


Despu茅s de presentarnos Show me the place y Darkness, Leonard Cohen ha adelantado Going home, otro tema de su inminente nuevo 谩lbum, 'Old ideas'. Como ya sab茅is, ser谩 el primer disco de Leonard Cohen desde que publicara 'Dear Heather' en 2004.

Ten茅is la canci贸n en el New Yorker, junto a la letra completa, que fue publicada en forma de poema en el peri贸dico, y que os copiamos al final del art铆culo. Nos encanta el primer p谩rrafo, por cierto.

'Old ideas' saldr谩 a la venta el pr贸ximo 31 de enero.

Going Home

I love to speak with Leonard
He鈥檚 a sportsman and a shepherd
He鈥檚 a lazy bastard
Living in a suit

But he does say what I tell him
Even though it isn鈥檛 welcome
He will never have the freedom
To refuse

He will speak these words of wisdom
Like a sage, a man of vision
Though he knows he鈥檚 really nothing
But the brief elaboration of a tube

Going home
Without my sorrow
Going home
Sometime tomorrow
To where it鈥檚 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 song
An anthem of forgiving
A manual for living with defeat

A cry above the suffering
A sacrifice recovering
But that isn鈥檛 what I want him to complete

I want to make him certain
That he doesn鈥檛 have a burden
That he doesn鈥檛 need a vision

That he only has permission
To do my instant bidding
That is to SAY what I have told him
To repeat

Going home
Without my sorrow
Going home
Sometime tomorrow
Going home
To where it鈥檚 better
Than before

Going home
Without my burden
Going home
Behind the curtain
Going home
Without the costume
That I wore

I love to speak with Leonard
He鈥檚 a sportsman and a shepherd
He鈥檚 a lazy bastard
Living in a suit
