Leonard Cohen

Apesar de ser um senhor com uma idade já respeitável, tenho a sensação que se pudesse casava-me já com ele!
Com umas letras assim tão poéticas, com uma presença de palco inigualável, com uma voz que nos faz arrepiar, não me lembro de alguma vez me ter sentido tão em êxtase num concerto. E hoje, passados alguns meses de o ter visto ao vivo ainda me arrepio quando oiço no mp3 as suas músicas.


Ain't No Cure For Love
I loved you for a long, long time
I know this love is real
It don't matter how it all went wrong
That don't change the way I feel
And I can't believe that time's
Gonna heal this wound I'm speaking of
There ain't no cure, There ain't no cure, There ain't no cure for love
I'm aching for you baby
I can't pretend I'm not I need to see you naked
In your body and your thought
I've got you like a habit
And I'll never get enough
There ain't no cure, There ain't no cure, There ain't no cure for love
There ain't no cure for love There ain't no cure for love
All the rocket ships are climbing through the sky
The holy books are open wide
The doctors working day and night
But they'll never ever find that cure for love
There ain't no drink no drug (Ah tell them, angels)
There's nothing pure enough to be a cure for love
I see you in the subway and I see you on the bus
I see you lying down with me,
I see you waking up I see your hand,
I see your hair
Your bracelets and your brush
And I call to you, I call to you
But I don't call soft enough
There ain't no cure, There ain't no cure, There ain't no cure for love
I walked into this empty church I had no place else to go
When the sweetest voice I ever heard, whispered to my soul
I don't need to be forgiven for loving you so much
It's written in the scriptures
It's written there in blood
I even heard the angels declare it from above
There ain't no cure, There ain't no cure, There ain't no cure for love
There ain't no cure for love There ain't no cure for love
All the rocket ships are climbing through the sky
The holy books are open wide
The doctors working day and night
But they'll never ever find that cure,

That cure for love

Eu adoro Leonard Cohen!.
Num todo ele é fantástico!
Eu vi-o ao vivo em 2008 foi um sonho tornado realidade, mesmo com a idade que tem continua a encantar... é como o vinho do Porto!
Amei esse momento.
