  • cohen'in son albümü, ten new songs'tan hoş bir şarkı. sandy için yazılmış. sözleri aşağıdadır.

    the ponies run, the girls are young,
    the odds are there to beat.
    you win a while, and then it’s done –
    your little winning streak.
    and summoned now to deal
    with your invincible defeat,
    you live your life as if it’s real,
    a thousand kisses deep.

    i’m turning tricks, i’m getting fixed,
    i’m back on boogie street.
    you lose your grip, and then you slip
    into the masterpiece.
    and maybe i had miles to drive,
    and promises to keep:
    you ditch it all to stay alive,
    a thousand kisses deep.

    and sometimes when the night is slow,
    the wretched and the meek,
    we gather up our hearts and go,
    a thousand kisses deep.

    confined to sex, we pressed against
    the limits of the sea:
    i saw there were no oceans left
    for scavengers like me.
    i made it to the forward deck
    i blessed our remnant fleet –
    and then consented to be wrecked,
    a thousand kisses deep.

    i’m turning tricks, i’m getting fixed,
    i’m back on boogie street.
    i guess they won’t exchange the gifts
    that you were meant to keep.
    and quiet is the thought of you
    the file on you complete,
    except what we forgot to do,
    a thousand kisses deep.

    and sometimes when the night is slow,
    the wretched and the meek,
    we gather up our hearts and go,
    a thousand kisses deep.

    the ponies run, the girls are young,
    the odds are there to beat…

  • ten new songsdaki tüm şarkılar gibi , sakinlik, dinginlik, huzur saçan şarkı. cohen'in bilmemkaç yaşından sonra zen manastırında geçirdiği meditasyon dolu yılların etkisinde muhtemelen..
  • soğuk bir kış gününde, gir sevgilinle yorganın altına, oynaşma, sadece kokla ve hayal et.
    bi de aletin sesini aç iyice, çalsın bu parça. yoksa mizansen eksik kalacak.
  • chris botti adlı bir dalyan jazz müzisyeni tarafından da coverlanmış bir şarkıdır. her türlü güzeldir,bunu bilir,bunu söylerim.

  • leonard cohen'in, 64. dogumgunu kutladigi 21 eylul 1998'de yazarak dostlarina ve ailesine ithaf ettigi siirden yola cikarak besteledigi sarki. siirin tamami asagidadir:

    for those who greeted me *)

    1. you came to me this morning
    and you handled me like meat.
    you´d have to live alone to know
    how good that feels, how sweet.
    my mirror twin, my next of kin,
    i´d know you in my sleep.
    and who but you would take me in
    a thousand kisses deep?

    2. i loved you when you opened
    like a lily to the heat.
    i´m just another snowman
    standing in the rain and sleet,
    who loved you with his frozen love
    his second-hand physique -
    with all he is, and all he was
    a thousand kisses deep.

    3. all soaked in sex, and pressed against
    the limits of the sea:
    i saw there were no oceans left
    for scavengers like me.
    we made it to the forward deck
    i blessed our remnant fleet -
    and then consented to be wrecked
    a thousand kisses deep.

    4. i know you had to lie to me,
    i know you had to cheat.
    but the means no longer guarantee
    the virtue in deceit.
    that truth is bent, that beauty spent,
    that style is obsolete -
    ever since the holy spirit went
    a thousand kisses deep.

    5. (so what about this inner light
    that´s boundless and unique?
    i´m slouching through another night
    a thousand kisses deep.)

    6. i´m turning tricks; i´m getting fixed,
    i´m back on boogie street.
    i tried to quit the business -
    hey, i´m lazy and i´m weak.
    but sometimes when the night is slow,
    the wretched and the meek,
    we gather up our hearts and go
    a thousand kisses deep.

    7. (and fragrant is the thought of you,
    the file on you complete -
    except what we forgot to do
    a thousand kisses deep.)

    8. the ponies run, the girls are young,
    the odds are there to beat.
    you win a while, and then it´s done -
    your little winning streak.
    and summoned now to deal
    with your invincible defeat,
    you live your life as if it´s real
    a thousand kisses deep.

    9. (i jammed with diz and dante -
    i did not have their sweep -
    but once or twice, they let me play
    a thousand kisses deep.)

    10. and i´m still working with the wine,
    still dancing cheek to cheek.
    the band is playing "auld lang syne" -
    the heart will not retreat.
    and maybe i had miles to drive,
    and promises to keep -
    you ditch it all to stay alive
    a thousand kisses deep.

    11. and now you are the angel death
    and now the paraclete;
    and now you are the savior's breath
    and now the belsen heap.
    no turning from the threat of love,
    no transcendental leap -
    as witnessed here in time and blood
    a thousand kisses deep.
