Leonard Cohen: Bird On The Wire

GLI EXTRA DELLE CCG / AWS EXTRAS / LES EXTRAS DES CCG
Lingua: Inglese



Like a bird on the wire
Like a drunk in a midnight choir
I have tried in my way to be free.
Like a worm on a hook
Like a knight from some old-fashioned book
I have saved all my ribbons for thee.

If I have been unkind
I hope that you can just let it go by
If I have been untrue,
I hope you know it was never to you.

Like a baby stillborn
Like a beast with his horn
I have torn everyone who reached out for me.
But I swear by this song
And by all that I have done wrong
I will make it all up to thee.

I saw a beggar leaning on his wooden crutch,
He said to me, "You must not ask for so much."
And a pretty woman leaning in her darkened door,
She cried to me, "Hey, why not ask for more?"

Like a bird on the wire
Like a drunk in a midnight choir
I have tried in my way to be free.
