They sentenced me to twenty years of boredom
For trying to change the system from within
I'm coming now, I'm coming to reward them
First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin

I'm guided by a signal in the heavens
I'm guided by this birthmark on my skin
I'm guided by the beauty of our weapons
First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin

I'd really like to live beside you, baby
I love your body and your spirit and your clothes
But you see that line there moving through the station?
I told you, I told you, told you, I was one of those

Ah you loved me as a loser, but now you're worried that I just might win
You know the way to stop me, but you don't have the discipline
How many nights I prayed for this, to let my work begin
First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin

I don't like your fashion business mister
And I don't like these drugs that keep you thin
I don't like what happened to my sister
First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin

I'd really like to live beside you, baby ...

And I thank you for those items that you sent me
The monkey and the plywood violin
I practiced every night, now I'm ready
First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin

I am guided

Ah remember me, I used to live for music
Remember me, I brought your groceries in
Well it's fathers day and everybody's wounded
First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin

The fiercest agonies have shortest reign.

Comparison, more than reality, makes men happy or wretched.

You know that they say "practice makes perfect". Pretend that you are rich and you will become rich. Do you think so?

Distance makes the hearts grow fonder. Look into my eyes - you will see what you mean to me. I need you like I need the air to breathe.

Juan Carlos, Jazmin, Sak, Homero. Sí. Leonard Cohen es un monstruo (bueno) con canciones buenísimas.
Abrazos.

Homero -

Hola Dino: Leonard Cohen me acompaña en mis soledades y tristezas desde los años 70. Definitivamente, uno de los mejores cantautores que conozco. ¿Sabías que la canción Chelsea Hotel Nº2 está dedicada a Janis Joplin? Es el reclamo y dolor de un poeta incomprendido.

Un abrazo. H.

La adivino preciosa, porque sé que tienes muy buen gusto. Digo que la adivino, porque no puedo escucharla aquí. Al menos hasta dentro de una semana...

Pero me gusta saludarte de igual forma.

Un beso.
