The Stranger Song текст песни
Leonard Cohen


Its true that all the men you knew were dealers

Who said they were through with dealing

Every time you gave them shelter

I know that kind of man

Its hard to hold the hand of anyone

Who is reaching for the sky just to surrender.

And then sweeping up the jokers that he left behind

You find he did not leave you very much

Not even laughter

Like any dealer he was watching for the card

That is so high and wild

Hell never need to deal another

He was just some joseph looking for a manger

He was just some joseph looking for a manger.

And then leaning on your window sill

Hell say one day you caused his will

To weaken with your love and warmth and shelter

And then taking from his wallet

An old schedule of trains, hell say

I told you when I came I was a stranger

I told you when I came I was a stranger.

But now another stranger seems to want you to ignore his dreams

As though they were the burden of some other

O youve seen that man before

His golden arm dispatching cards

But now its rusted from the elbow to the finger

And he wants to trade the game he plays for shelter

Yes he wants to trade the game he knows for shelter.

You hate to watch another tired man

Lay down his hand

Like he was giving up the holy game of poker

And while he talks his dreams to sleep

You notice theres a highway

That is curling up like smoke above his shoulder

Its curling up like smoke above his shoulder.

You tell him to come in sit down

But something makes you turn around

The door is open you cant close you shelter

You try the handle of the road

It opens do not be afraid

Its you my love, you who are the stranger

It is you my love, you who are the stranger.

Well, Ive been waiting, I was sure

Wed meet between the trains were waiting for

I think its time to board another

Please understand, I never had a secret chart

To get me to the heart of this

Or any other matter

Well he talks like this

You dont know what hes after

When he speaks like this,

You dont know what hes after.

Lets meet tomorrow if you chose

Upon the shore, beneath the bridge

That they are building on some endless river

Then he leaves the platform

For the sleeping car thats warm

You realize, hes only advertising one more shelter

And it comes to you, he never was a stranger

And you say ok the bridge or someplace later.

And then sweeping up the jokers

That he left behind

You find he did not leave you very much

Not even laughter

Like any dealer he was watching for the card

That is so high and wild

Hell never need to deal another

He was just some joseph looking for a manger

He was just some joseph looking for a manger.

And leaning on your window sill

Hell say one day you caused his will

To weaken with your love and warmth and shelter

And then taking from his wallet

An old schedule of trains

Hell say I told you when I came I was a stranger

I told you when I came I was a stranger.
