Tower of song – Leonard Cohen & U2

No tengo ni idea de cómo fue que llegué hasta este video; sólo sé que en cuanto vi quienes eran los artistas, supe que tenía que escucharlo.

No me equivoqué.




La voz de Leonard Cohen es muy especial.

U2 es una banda que me ha gustado en muchísimos temas.

Juntos, seguro que iban a gustarme.

Quedé encantado con esta canción.

Espero que a ustedes también les guste.

Por si les interesa, aquí tienen la letra

Tower of Song

Well my friends are gone and my hair is grey
I ache in the places where I used to play
And I´m crazy for love but I´m not coming on
I´m just paying my rent every day
in the tower of song

I said to Hank Williams: how lonely does it get?
Hank Williams hasn´t answered yet
But I hear him coughing all night long
A hundred floors above me
In the tower of song

I was born like this, I had no choice
I was born with the gift of a golden voice
And twenty-seven angels from the great beyond
Ah They tied me to this table right here
In the tower of song

So you can stick your little pins in that voodoo doll
I´m very sorry, baby, doesn´t look like me at all
I´m standing by the window where the light is strong
Ah they don´t let a woman kill you
Not in the tower of song

Now you can say that I´ve grown bitter but of this you may be sure
The rich have got their channels in the bedrooms of the poor
And there´s a mighty judgement coming, but I may be wrong
You see, you hear these funny voices
In the tower of song

I see you standing on the other side
I don´t know how the river got so wide
I loved you baby, way back when
And all the bridges are burning that we might have crossed
I feel so close to everything we´ve lost
Well never have to lose it again

Now I bid you farewell, I don´t know when I´ll be back
There moving us tomorrow to that tower down the track
But youll be hearing from me baby, long after I´m gone
I´ll be speaking to you sweetly
From a window in the tower of song

Well my friends are gone and my hair is grey
I ache in the places where I used to play
And I´m crazy for love but I´m not coming on
I´m just paying my rent every day
in the tower of song
