Sense of selflessness

 

It's dark outside, the shades are drawn so I can't even see the stars
and everything I think about is how all good things are too far
away, and everything I dream I'm sure will give me mental scars
and winter's coming with the cold and sadness pain and all and.. oh wait...

Turn the lights on
and watch the sun
as it rises,
and be done
with the self-caused
misery
and self pity...

...but then again, the nights are long and I can't even write this song
for you, to know just what I feel, and really tell you all that's wrong
about this world, about this life, and you won't get it but come on,
I need to scream I need to shout to tear me up to feel.. oh, oh no...

Let the stars die,
you can stay
on the bright side
of your life!
You're as good now -
on your own -
as when the stars shone...

...still, how am I supposed to be okay when I can barely live,
(...just keep trying...)
to try again when I've already given all that I could give,
(...and hold on...)
to hold on to the beauty when it's way too dark for me to see
(...you will see it...)
it, how am I supposed to do it, how am I supposed to, tell me...
(...you'll get through!)

Just be patient,
(...I'm not that strong and not that pure...)
and endure,
there is nothing
(...there is nothing I can do...)
you can't do...

We will take this
(...I can't take this, can't go on...)
and get on,
we will not be
(...I will be broken down...)
broken down.

Får väldigt starka Leonard Cohen vbibbar. Väldigt bra, väldigt inspirerande, tack.

Dock älskar jag det mer, när du sjunger på svenska. Det är något med din röst då, som berör... Mig, djupt in i själen.

Du sjunger så oerhört vackert, och är oerhört vacker.
