Caci asa lasi in urma pieile altora ca sa locuiesti sub alte piei mai vesele si mai potrivite, nici prea mici si nici prea mari.
Si-atunci ii canti streinului impacandu-te cu el pentru ca i-ai largit pielea si i-ai lasat mizerie pe dinauntru.
Pe la colturi insa iti ingropi gandurile si visele stranse frumos in nuci impreuna cu sipetul de vorbe in noua piele care-ti vine turnata si te simti la randul tau ca un cufar pentru celalalt. Arunci o ocheada in departare streinului si iti vine sa injuri, dar preferi sa faci pace.
The Stranger Song
by Leonard Cohen
It's true that all the men you knew were dealers
who said they were through with dealing
Every time you gave them shelter
I know that kind of man
It's hard to hold the hand of anyone
who is reaching for the sky just to surrender
who is reaching for the sky just to surrender.
And then sweeping up the jokers that he left behind
you find he did not leave you very much not even laughter
Like any dealer he was watching for the card
that is so high and wild
he'll never need to deal another
He was just some Joseph looking for a manger
He was just some Joseph looking for a manger.
