Going Home Lyrics

Going Home - Leonard Cohen (莱昂纳德·科恩)

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

 

I love to speak with Leonard

He's a sportsman and a shepherd

He's a lazy bastard

Living in a suit

But he does say what I tell him

Even though it isn't welcome

He just doesn't have the freedom to refuse

 

He will speak these words of wisdom

Like a sage a man of vision

Though he knows he's really nothing

But the brief elaboration of a tube

Going home without my sorrow

Going home sometime tomorrow

Going home to where it's better than before

Going home without my burden

Going home behind the curtain

Going home without the costume that I wore

 

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

 

He wants to write a love song

An anthem of forgiving

 

A manual for living with defeat

A cry above the suffering

A sacrifice recovering

 

But that isn't what I need him to complete

 

I want to make him certain

That he doesn't have a burden

That he doesn't need a vision

That he only has permission

 

To do my instant bidding

Which is to say what I have told him to repeat

 

Going home without my sorrow

Going home sometime tomorrow

 

Going home to where it's better than before

 

Going home without my burden

 

Going home behind the curtain

 

Going home without this costume that I wore

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

 

I'm going home without my sorrow

Going home sometime tomorrow

Going home to where it's better than before

Going home without my burden

 

Going home behind the curtain

 

Going home without the costume that I wore

 

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

 

I love to speak with leonard

He's a sportsman and a shepherd

He's a lazy bastard

 

Living in a suit
