Leonard Cohen : Tower of song

15 Jan

It’s been a great start to new year for me. I have a new job. I met my beloved teacher. My friends happy for me. I have been busy. I do miss writing blog, biking and what one of my friends had told me ” Stop being lazy’, I had asked ” What do you mean by lazy?” my friend had said ”  sitting and enjoying” :).

I think my young cousin brought me luck, pilgrimage, my mother’s prayers, my friends good wishes, my teacher’s blessings..

I have posted this song before and if you want the answer to all mysteries, you are just the type of people, who should listen to this song 🙂

Tower of Song: Leonard Cohen

Well my friends are gone and my hair is grey
I ache in the places where I used to play
And I’m crazy for love but I’m not coming on
I’m just paying my rent every day
Oh in the Tower of Song

I said to Hank Williams: how lonely does it get?
Hank Williams hasn’t answered yet
But I hear him coughing all night long
A hundred floors above me
In the Tower of Song

I was born like this, I had no choice
I was born with the gift of a golden voice
And twenty-seven angels from the Great Beyond
They tied me to this table right here
In the Tower of Song

So you can stick your little pins in that voodoo doll
I’m very sorry, baby, doesn’t look like me at all
I’m standing by the window where the light is strong
Ah they don’t let a woman kill you
Not in the Tower of Song

Now you can say that I’ve grown bitter but of this you may be sure
The rich have got their channels in the bedrooms of the poor
And there’s a mighty judgement coming, but I may be wrong
You see, you hear these funny voices
In the Tower of Song

I see you standing on the other side
I don’t know how the river got so wide
I loved you baby, way back when
And all the bridges are burning that we might have crossed
But I feel so close to everything that we lost
We’ll never have to lose it again

Now I bid you farewell, I don’t know when I’ll be back
They’re moving us tomorrow to that tower down the track
But you’ll be hearing from me  darling, long after I’m gone
I’ll be speaking to you sweetly
From a window in the Tower of Song

Yeah my friends are gone and my hair is grey
I ache in the places where I used to play
And I’m crazy for love but I’m not coming on
I’m just paying my rent every day
Oh in the Tower of Song

I dedicate this beloved song of the master to my most beloved teacher, who is responsible for everything little that know about English..

In any case miss, sitting and enjoying 🙂 all people who have brains are little lazy my young cousin Chandru had  pronounced ( Jisko bhi dimag hai woh thoda aalsi hota hai), this just in fun..

Remember the answer to mysteries !!!

Goodnight friends! Hope you have a lovely day!

Thank you!
