ANTHEM

By Leonard Cohen, may he Rest In Peace ❤️
  1. The birds they sang
  2. at the break of day
  3. Start again
  4. I heard them say
  5. Don't dwell on what
  6. has passed away
  7. or what is yet to be.
  8. Ah the wars they will
  9. be found again
  10. The holy dove
  11. She will be caught again
  12. bought and sold
  13. and bought again
  14. the dove is never free.
  15. ~
  16. Ring the bells that still can ring
  17. Forget your perfect offering
  18. There is a crack in everything
  19. That's how the light gets in.
  20. ~
  21. We asked for signs
  22. the signs were sent:
  23. the birth betrayed
  24. the marriage spent
  25. Yeah the widowhood
  26. of every government —
  27. signs for all to see.
  28. ~
  29. I can't run no more
  30. with that lawless crowd
  31. while the killers in high places
  32. say their prayers out loud.
  33. But they've summoned, they've summoned up
  34. a thundercloud
  35. and they're going to hear from me.
  36. ~
  37. Ring the bells that still can ring...
  38. ~
  39. You can add up the parts
  40. but you won't have the sum
  41. You can strike up the march,
  42. there is no drum
  43. Every heart, every heart
  44. to love will come
  45. but like a refugee.
  46. ~
  47. Right the bells that still can ring
  48. Forget your perfect offering
  49. There is a crack, a crack in everything
  50. That's how the light gets in.
  51. ~
  52. Ring the bells that still can ring
  53. Forget your perfect offering
  54. There is a crack, a crack in everything
  55. That's how the light gets in.
  56. That's how the light gets in.
  57. That's how the light gets in.
