Anthem Lyrics

Anthem (《莱奥纳德·科恩:我是你的男人》纪录片插曲) - Perla Batalla/Julie Christensen

The birds they sang

At the break of day

Start again

I heard them say

Don't dwell on what

Has passed away

Or what is yet to be

Ah the wars they will

Be fought again

The holy dove

She will be caught again

Bought and sold

And bought again

The dove is never free

Ring the bells that still can ring

Forget your perfect offering

There is a crack in everything

That's how the light gets in

We asked for signs

The signs were sent:

The birth betrayed

The marriage spent

Yeah the widowhood

Of every government --

Signs for all to see

I can't run no more

With that lawless crowd

While the killers in high places

Say their prayers out loud

But they've summoned they've summoned up

A thundercloud

And they're going to hear from me

Ring the bells that still can ring

Forget your perfect offering

There is a crack in everything

That's how the light gets in

You can add up the parts

But you won't have the sum

You can strike up the march

There is no drum

Every heart

To love will come

But like a refugee

Ring the bells that still can ring

 

Forget your perfect offering

There is a crack a crack in everything

That's how the light gets in

Ring the bells that still can ring

Forget your perfect offering

There is a crack a crack in everything

That's how the light gets in

That's how the light gets in

That's how the light gets in
