Suzanne (苏珊妮) - Leonard Cohen (莱昂纳德·科恩)

Written by:Leonard Cohen

 

Suzanne takes you down to her place near the river

You can hear the boats go by

You can spend the night beside her

And you know that she's half crazy

But 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

Then she gets you on her wavelength

That you've always been her lover

And you want to travel with her

And you want to travel blind

And you know that she will trust you For you've touched her perfect body with your mind

And Jesus was a sailor

When he walked upon the water

And he spent a long time watchingFrom his lonely wooden tower

And when he knew for certain

Only drowning men could see him

He said 'All men will be sailors then

Until the sea shall free them'

But he himself was broken

Long before the sky would open

Forsaken 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 know

That you can trust her For she's touched your perfect body with her mind

Now Suzanne takes your hand

And she leads you to the river

She is wearing rags and feathers From Salvation Army counters

And the sun pours down like honey On our lady of the harbour

And she shows you where to look

Among 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

And you want to travel with her

And you want to travel blind

And you know that you can trust her For she's touched your perfect body with her mind
