Leonard Cohen – Anthem (w/lyrics) London 2008 – YouTube

The birds they sang at the break of day Start again I seem to hear them say Do not dwell on what has passed away or what is yet to be. Ah the wars they will be fought again The holy dove She will be caught again bought and sold and bought again the dove is never free. Ring the bells that still can ring Forget your perfect offering There is a crackA crack in everything That’s how the light gets in. We asked for signs and the signs were sent: the birth betrayed the marriage spent Yeah the widowhood of every single governmentsigns for all to seeI can’t run no more with that lawless crowdAh but they’ve summoned, they’ve summoned up a thundercloud and they’re going to hear from me. Ring the bells that still can ring Forget your perfect offering There is a crackA crack in everything That’s how the light gets inYou can add up the parts but you won’t have the sum You can strike up the march on your little broken drum Every heart, every heart to love will come but like a refugeeRing the bells that still can ring Forget your perfect offering There is a crack, a crack in everything That’s how the light gets in. Ring the bells that still can ring Forget your perfect offering There is a crack, a crack in everything That’s how the light gets inThat’s how the light gets inThat’s how the light gets in
