Você tem que ouvir: "Going Home", música nova de Leonard Cohen




Estava lendo as notícias do Consequence of Sound, quando me deparei com um bom motivo para reproduzir algo de lá: mais uma música nova do disco Old Ideas, do poeta/cantor Leonard Cohen, está solta pelo mundo, dessa vez através do site da revista The New Yorker. A letra da canção é na verdade um poema, que inclusive está publicado nas páginas da revista esta semana:




I love to speak with Leonard
He’s a sportsman and a shepherd
He’s a lazy bastard
Living in a suit

But he does say what I tell him
Even though it isn’t welcome
He will never have the freedom
To refuse

He will speak these words of wisdom
Like a sage, a man of vision
Though he knows he’s really nothing
But the brief elaboration of a tube


Going home
Without my sorrow
Going home
Sometime tomorrow
To where it’s better
Than before

Going home
Without my burden
Going home
Behind the curtain
Going home
Without the costume
That I wore


He wants to write a love song
An anthem of forgiving
A manual for living with defeat

A cry above the suffering
A sacrifice recovering
But that isn’t what I want him to complete

I want to make him certain
That he doesn’t have a burden
That he doesn’t need a vision

That he only has permission
To do my instant bidding
That is to SAY what I have told him
To repeat


Going home
Without my sorrow
Going home
Sometime tomorrow
Going home
To where it’s better
Than before

Going home
Without my burden
Going home
Behind the curtain
Going home
Without the costume
That I wore


I love to speak with Leonard
He’s a sportsman and a shepherd
He’s a lazy bastard
Living in a suit





Para ouvir "Going Home", clique aqui. O disco será lançado dia 31 de janeiro, mas pelo ritmo de músicas sendo liberadas (essa já é a terceira que aparece, as anteriores foram "Darkness" e "Show Me The Place"), pode ser que antes disso já conheçamos todas as dez faixas de Old Ideas. Enquanto isso, La Cumbuca permanece em campanha permanente para que Leonard Cohen finalmente venha ao Brasil.
