Une des nombreuses chansons entendues dans le film Goodbye England dont je vous parlais ici.
So long Marianne par Leonard Cohen.
Assurément une trop belle chanson pour que je la garde pour moi toute seule.
Alors disons que je la partage avec vous tous, et plus particulièrement avec Mélissa.
Come over to the window, my little darling, I’d like to try to read you palm
I used to think I was some kind of gypsy boy, Before I let you take me home.
Chorus : 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 angel, And then the angels forget to pray for us.
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 kneeling through the dark.
Your letters say that you are 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.
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.
O 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.
