Testo della canzone So Long Marianne (Leonard Cohen), tratta dall'album The Lost Sessions

So Long Marianne - Leonard Cohen

Song was called "So long Marianne"
And a girl called Marianne that I know very well
She came to me after I sang it for the first
And she said, she's a Norwegian, she said
"I'm certainly glad that song wasn't written for me"
I said, "Ooh, yeah?"
And she said, "Yeah, 'cause my name is Mariane"

Come over to the window, my little darling
I'd like to try to read your palm
I used to think I was some kind of gypsy boy
Before I let you take me home

Now so long, Marianne
It's time that we began to laugh
And cry and cry and laugh about it all again

Well, you know that I love to live with you
But you make me forget so very much
I forget to pray for the angels
And then the angels forget to pray for us

Now so long, Marianne
It's time that we began to laugh
And cry and cry and laugh about it all again

How we met when we were almost young
Deep in the green lilac park
You held on to me like I was a crucifix
As we went kneeling through the dark

Now so long, Marianne
It's time that we began to laugh
And cry and cry and laugh about it all again

Your letters, they all say that you're beside me now
Then why do I feel alone?
I'm standing on a ledge and your fine spider web
Is fastening my ankle to a stone

Now so long, Marianne
It's time that we began to laugh
And cry and cry and laugh about it all again

For now, now I need your hidden love
I'm cold as a new razorblade
You left when I told you I was curious
I never said that I was brave

Now so long, Marianne
It's time that we began to laugh
And cry and cry and laugh about it all again

Oh, you are really such a pretty one
I see that you've gone and changed your name again
And just when I climbed this whole mountainside
To wash my eyelids in the rain

Now so long, Marianne
It's time that we began to laugh
And cry and cry and laugh about it all again

If you leave, where will I keep you then?
In my my heart, as some men said
And I, who was born to love everyone
Why should I keep you so far away?

Now so long, Marianne
It's time that we begin to laugh
And cry and cry and laugh about it all again
