The Letters (信件) - Leonard Cohen (萊昂納德·科恩)

Written by:Leonard Cohen/Sharon Robinson

You never liked to get

 

The letters that I sent

 

But now you've got the gist

 

Of what my letters meant

 

You're reading them again

 

The ones you didn't burn

 

You press them to your lips

 

My pages of concern

 

I said there'd been a flood

 

I said there's nothing left

 

I hoped that you would come

 

I gave you my address

 

Your story was so long

 

The plot was so intense

 

It took you years to cross

 

The lines of self-defense

 

The wounded forms appear

 

The loss the full extent

 

And simple kindness here

 

The solitude of strength

 

I said there'd been a flood

 

I said there's nothing left

 

I hoped that you would come

 

I gave you my address

 

You walk into my room

 

You stand there at my desk

 

Begin your letter to

 

The one who's coming next

 

Begin your letter to

 

The one who's coming next

You never liked to get

 

The letters that I sent

 

But now you've got the gist

 

Of what my letters meant

 

You're reading them again

 

The ones you didn't burn

 

You press them to your lips

 

My pages of concern

 

I said there'd been a flood

 

I said there's nothing left

 

I hoped that you would come

 

I gave you my address

 

Your story was so long

 

The plot was so intense

 

It took you years to cross

 

The lines of self-defense

 

The wounded forms appear

 

The loss the full extent

 

And simple kindness here

 

The solitude of strength
