A Bunch of Lonesome Heroes Lyrics

A Bunch Of Lonesome Heroes - Leonard Cohen (莱昂纳德·科恩)

A bunch of lonesome

And very quarrelsome heroes

 

Were smoking out

Along the open road;

 

The night was very dark

And thick between them

 

Each man beneath his ordinary load

 

I'd like to tell my story

 

Said one of them so young and bold

 

I'd like to tell my story

 

Before I turn into gold

 

But no one really could hear him

 

The night so dark and thick and green;

 

Well I guess that these heroes

Must always live there

 

Where you and I have only been

 

Put out your cigarette my love

 

You've been alone too long;

 

And some of us are very hungry now

 

To hear what it is you've done

That was so wrong

 

I sing this for the crickets

 

I sing this for the army

 

I sing this for your children

 

And for all who do not need me

 

I'd like to tell my story

 

Said one of them so bold

 

Oh yes I'd like to tell my story

 

Cause you know I feel

 

I'm turning into gold
