Ladies and Gentlemen...Mr. Leonard Cohen

There is a crack in everything, that's how the light gets in

41 notes

And I’ll dance with you in Vienna,
I’ll be wearing a river’s disguise.
The hyacinth wild on my shoulder
my mouth on the dew of your thighs.
And I’ll bury my soul in a scrapbook,
with the photographs there and the moss.
And I’ll yield to the flood of your beauty,
my cheap violin and my cross.
Leonard Cohen, “Take This Waltz”
