Suzanne Lyrics

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

Suzanne takes you down

To her place near the river

 

You can see the boats go by

And you can spend the night forever

And you know she's half crazy

And 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 gets you on her wavelength

And she lets the river answer

That you've always been her lover

 

And you want to travel with Him

And you want to travel blind

And you think maybe you'll trust him

Cause He's touched your perfect body with His mind

 

And Jesus was a sailor

When He walked upon the water

And He spent a long time watching

From a lonely wooden tower

 

Yes and when He knew for certain

Only drowning men could see Him

He said all men will be sailors then

Until the seas free them

But He Himself was broken

Long before the sky would open

Forsaken and almost human

He sank beneath your wisdom like a stone

 

And you want to travel with Him

And you want to travel blind

And you think maybe you'll trust him

Cause He's touched your perfect body with His mind

 

Suzanne takes your hand

And she leads you besides the water

She is wearing rags feathers

From Salvation Army counters

And the sun pours down like honey

On our lady of the harbor

She shows you where to look

Between 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

 

You want to travel with her

And you want to travel blind

And you think maybe you can trust her

Cause she's touched your perfect body with her mind
