Suzanne

Leonard Cohen

E
Suzanne takes you down to her place near the river,
F#m
You can hear the boat go by, and you spend the night beside her.
E
And you know that she's half crazy, but that's why you want to be there
G#m A
And she feeds you tea and oranges that come all the way from China.
E F#m
And when you mean to tell her that you have no love to give her.
E
Then she gets you on her wave-length
F#m E
And she lets the river answer that you’ve always been her lover.
G#m A
And you want to travel with her, and you want to travel blind,
E F#m
And you know she will trust you for you’ve touched her perfect body
E
With your mind.
 
And Jesus was a sailor when he walked upon the water. 
And he spend a long time watching from his lonely wooden tower. 
And when he knew for certain only drowning men could see him 
He said: "All men will be sailors then until the sea shall free them". 
But he himself was broken long bevor the sky war open 
Forsaken, almost human, 
He sank beneath your wisdom like a stone. 
And you want to travel with him, and you want to travel blind 
And you think maybe you'll trust him for he's touched you perfect body 
With his mind. 
 
Now Suzanne takes your hand and she leads you to the river 
She is wearing rags and feathers from Salvation Army counters. 
And the sun pours down like honey for our lady of the harbour, 
and she shows you where to look among the garbage and the flowers. 
There are heros in the seaweed, there are children in the morning 
They are leaning out for love 
And they will lean that way forever, while Suzanne holds the mirror. 
And you want to travel with her, and you want to travel blind, 
And you know that you can trust her for she's touched your perfect body 
With her mind.
