Nick Cave – Leonard Cohen’s Suzanne

 

  • Nick Cave in Leonard Cohen’s song Suzanne

    Suzanne takes you down to her place newer the river
    You can hear the boats go by
    You can spend the night beside her
    And you know that shes half crazy
    But thats 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
    And she lets the river answer
    That youve 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 youve touched her perfect body with your mind.

    And jesus was a sailor
    When he walked upon the water
    And he spent a long time watching
    From 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 think maybe youll trust him
    For hes touched your perfect body with his mind.

    Now suzanne takes you 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 she will trust you
    For shes touched your perfect body with her mind.
