Les femmes aux cheveux courts

Humeurs et états d'âme d'un amoureux des femmes aux cheveux courts.

Une blessure étrange dans ton coeur

daniela-vladimirova.jpg

Suzanne takes you down to her place near the river

You can hear the boats go by
You can spend the night beside her
And you know, she's half crazy

It's why you want to be there
She feeds you tea and oranges
That come all the way from China

And just when you mean to tell her
You have no love to give her
She gets you on her wavelength
And she lets the river answer
You've always been her lover

And you want to travel with her
And you want to travel blind
And know she will trust you
For you've touched her perfect body with your mind

Jesus was a sailor
When He walked upon the water
And He spent a long time watching
From His lonely wooden tower

And when He knew for certain
Only drowning men could see Him
He said,"All men will be sailors then
Until the sea shall free them"

But He, Himself was broken
Long before the sky would open
Forsaken, almost human
He sank beneath your wisdom like a stone

And you want to travel with him
You want to travel blind
And you know he will find you
For he's touched your perfect body with his mind

Suzanne takes your hand now
And she leads you to the river
She is wearing rags and feathers
From Salvation Army counters

And the sun pours down like honey
On our, our lady of the harbor
She shows you where to look
Among the garbage and the flowers

There are heroes in the seaweed
There are children in the morning
They are leaning out for love
And they will lean that way forever
While Suzanne holds the mirror

And you want to travel with her
You want to travel blind
And you know she'll find you
For she's touched your perfect body with her mind

Certains y voient du fétichisme. Il ne s'agit que de dilection. Outre l'apparence, c'est aussi le caractère des femmes aux cheveux courts qui me séduit.

ah je me disais bien, et il a bien fait, et on a des gouts musicaux communs, dommage qu'on entende pas plus souvent cet artiste talentueux.

Je pars en vacances sous peu pendant une semaine, à bientôt

quel beau moment j'aime beaucoup Leonard COHEN, belle voix grave,.

Avec ce qu'il me reste d'anglais je vois que la traduction n'est pas tout à fait exacte.

Du coup je me dis que c'est surement souvent le cas.

A écouter tranquillement une tasse de thé à la main c'est comme ça que j'ai fait.

Merci encore pour ce moment de bonheur.

Ce n'est pas une traduction, c'est une adaptation. Cette version de Graeme Allwright est chère à mon coeur.
