Suzanne (蘇珊妮) (Live) - Leonard Cohen (萊昂納德·科恩)

Suzanne takes you down to her place near the river

You can hear the boats go by

You can spend the night beside her

And you know that she's half crazy

But that's why you want to be there

And she feeds you tea and oranges

That come all the way from china

And just when you mean to tell her

That you have no love to give her

She get's you on her wavelength

She let's the river answer

You've always been her lover


And you want to travel with her

You want to travel blind

And you know she will trust you

For you've touched her perfect body with your mind


And Jesus was a sailor

When he walked upon the water

And he spent a long time watching

From his lonely wooden tower

And when he knew for certain

Only drowning men could see him

He said all men will be sailors then

Until the sea shall free them

But he himself was broken

Long before the sky would open

Forsaken almost human

He sank beneath your wisdom like a stone


But now you want to travel with him

You want to travel blind

And you think this time you'll trust him

For he's touched your perfect body with his mind


Now suzanne takes you hand


She leads you to the river

She is wearing rags and feathers

From salvation army counters

And the sun pours down like honey

On our lady of the harbour

And she shows you where to look

Among the garbage and the flowers

There are heroes in the seaweed

There are children in the morning

They are leaning out for love

And they will lean that way forever

While suzanne holds the mirror


And you want to travel with her

You want to travel blind

And you know that she will find you

For she's touched your perfect body with her mind
