DEEPLY AWAKE – GOD BLESS LEONARD COHEN

ANTHEM

The birds, they sang
at break of day.
Start again,
I heard them say.
Don't dwell on what has
passed away,
or what has yet to be.

Oh, the wars,
they will be fought again.
The holy dove,
she will be caught again,
and bought and sold
and bought again;
The dove is never free.

Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack, a crack, in everything
That's how the light gets in

We asked for signs,
the signs were sent
The birth betrayed,
The marriage spent.
The widowhood of every
government,
Signs for all to see.

I can run no more
with that lawless crowd,
While the killers in high places
Say their prayers out loud,
But they've summoned up
a thundercloud
They're gonna hear from me.

Ring the bells that still can ring.
Forget your perfect offering.
There is a crack, a crack in everything.
That's how the light gets in.

You can add up the parts
you won't have the sum.
You can strike up the march,
there is no drum.
Every heart to love will come,
but like a refugee.

Ring the bells that still can ring!
Forget your perfect offering!
There is a crack in everything,
That's how the light gets in.

I hope Mr. Cohen forgives my own use of grammar. I am transcribing it from a video.
