Descanse em Paz, Leonard Cohen. "So Long, Marianne"





Assim como "Bird On The Wire", "So Long, Marianne" teve como inspiração Marianne Ihlen, uma garota norueguesa com quem Leonard Cohen viveu durante os anos 60 em uma ilha grega.






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

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 reeling through the dark

Oh 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 I need your hidden love
I'm cold as a new razor blade
You left when I told you I was curious
I never said that I was brave

Oh 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 you've gone and changed your name again
And just when I climbed this whole mountainside
To wash my eyelids in the rain

Oh so long, Marianne, it's time that we began
To laugh and cry and cry and laugh about it all again




Ao vivo em tempos recentes:






Marianne morreu no final de julho deste ano. Pouco antes de sua morte, ela recebeu uma carta de Leonard Cohen, e o que contam é que estava escrito o seguinte:


Well Marianne, it’s come to this time when we are really so old and our bodies are falling apart and I think I will follow you very soon. Know that I am so close behind you that if you stretch out your hand, I think you can reach mine. And you know that I’ve always loved you for your beauty and your wisdom, but I don’t have to say anything more about that because you know all about that. But now, I just want to wish you a very good journey. Goodbye old friend. Endless love, see you down the road.


Traduzido em português (de Portugal) pelo site Publico:


“Bem, Marianne, chegámos a este ponto em que somos tão velhos que os nossos corpos se desfazem; penso que te seguirei muito em breve. Quero que saibas que estou tão próximo de ti que, se estenderes a tua mão, creio que conseguirás tocar a minha. Sabes que sempre te amei pela tua beleza e sabedoria, mas não preciso de alongar-me, porque já sabes tudo isso. Quero apenas desejar-te boa viagem. Adeus, velha amiga. Com todo o amor, encontrar-te-ei pelo caminho”.
