The light came through the window,
Straight from the sun above,
And so inside my little room
There plunged the rays of Love.
In streams of light I clearly saw
The dust you seldom see,
Out if which the Nameless makes
A Name for one like me.
I'll try to say a little more:
Love went on and on
Until it reached an open door-
Then Love Itself was gone.
(L.C, Love Itself)
...Dear Lady, Queen of Solitude
I thank you all my heart
For keeping so close to thee
While so many, oh so many stood apart.
And the light came from her body
And the night went through her grace
All summer long she touched me
And I knew her, I knew her face to face.
( L. Cohen. Our Lady of Solitude)
..the look of love is saying so much more than just words could ever say.
You've got the look of love , it's on your face
A look that time can't erase ....
...Happy Valentine to all....
....in a very unusual way..
one time I needed you...
....in a very unusual way..
you were my friend..
...maybe it lasted a day...
maybe it lasted an hour..
but somehow it will never end.
(Nine musical )
...and fragrant is the thought of you..
..the file on you complete
..except what we forgot to do
A thousand kisses deep......
(L.Cohen. Thousand kisses deep)
...tell me who you are today
Did you leave the best with the words you won't say
Different man, different heart
Now we stand worlds and worlds apart...
Underneath that ruins that lie
A broken rhythm keeps running through my mind
Color it is all I see
But I don't bother the remains of you and me....
(Chloe and Yanni music)
..like a bird on the wire
..like a drunk in a midnight choir
I have tried in my way to be free
Like a worm on a hook
Like a knight from some old-fashioned book
I have saved all my ribbons for thee
........if I have been unkind
........I hope that you can just let it go by
........if I have been untrue
........I hope you know it was never to you....
(Bird on the wire by Leonard Cohen)
....smile though your heart is aching;
smile even though it's breaking.
when there are clouds in the sky, you'll get by.
if you smile through your fear and sorrow,
smile and maybe tomorrow,
you'll see the sun come shining through for you....
Light up your face with gladness,
hide every trace of sadness.
although a tear may be ever so near,
that's the time you must keep on trying,
smile, what's the use of crying?
you'll find that life is still worthwhile
if you just smile.
(Steve Tyler and Smile from Chris Botti Live in Boston soundtrack )
...look at yourself, if you have a sense of humor
You would laugh to beat the band
Look at yourself , do you still believe the rumor
That romance is simply grand?
Fools rush in, so here I am
Very glad to be unhappy
I can't win, but here I am
More than glad to be unhappy.
Unrequited love's a bore
And I 've got it pretty bad
But for someone you adore
It's a pleasure to be sad.
Like a straying baby lamb
With no mammy and no pappy
I'm so unhappy....
But oh, so glad!!!
( John Meyer and Glad to be unhappy from Chris Botti live in Boston)
As the mist leaves no scar
On the dark green hill,
So my body leaves no scar
On you, nor ever will.
As many nights endure
Without the moon or star,
So will we endure
When one is gone and far.
(L.Cohen. As the mist leaves no scar)
I walked into this empty church-
I had no place else to go-
when the sweetest voice I ever heard-
came whispering to my soul.
I don't need to be forgiven -
for loving you so much.
It's written in the scriptures,
it's written there in blood.
I even heard the angels declare it from above-
There ain't no cure-
there ain't no cure-
there ain't no cure for love.
(Leonard Cohen. Ain't no cure for love)
