Leonard Cohen Lyrics

 

Everybody knows that the dice are loaded
Everybody rolls with their fingers crossed
Everybody knows that the war is over
Everybody knows the good guys lost
Everybody knows the fight was fixed
The poor stay poor, the rich get rich
That's how it goes
Everybody knows

 

Everybody knows that the boat is leaking
Everybody knows that the captain lied
Everybody got this broken feeling
Like their father or their dog just died

Everybody talking to their pockets
Everybody wants a box of chocolates
And a long stem rose
Everybody knows

 

Everybody knows that you love me baby
Everybody knows that you really do
Everybody knows that you've been faithful
Ah give or take a night or two
Everybody knows you've been discreet
But there were so many people you just had to meet
Without your clothes
And everybody knows

Everybody knows, everybody knows
That's how it goes
Everybody knows

Everybody knows, everybody knows
That's how it goes
Everybody knows

And everybody knows that it's now or never
Everybody knows that it's me or you
And everybody knows that you live forever
Ah when you've done a line or two
Everybody knows the deal is rotten

Old black joe's still pickin' cotton
For your ribbons and bows
And everybody knows
 

And everybody knows that the plague is coming
Everybody knows that it's moving fast
Everybody knows that the naked man and woman
Are just a shining artifact of the past
Everybody knows the scene is dead
But there's gonna be a meter on your bed
That will disclose
What everybody knows

 

And everybody knows that you're in trouble
Everybody knows what you've been through
From the bloody cross on top of calvary
To the beach of malibu
Everybody knows it's coming apart
 

Take one last look at this sacred heart
Before it blows
And everybody knows
Everybody knows, everybody knows
That's how it goes
Everybody knows
 

Oh everybody knows, everybody knows
That's how it goes
Everybody knows

 

Everybody knows
 

wenn du alt geworden bist

komm zurück zu mir

aus der geänderten zeit

 

trink mit mir einen kaffee

am feuer meines afrikanischen kamins

 

rote und schwarze kerzen brennen

 wegweiser für dich

auf der reise

durch vergangene welten

 

ich erkannte dein bild

in allen spiegeln

der vorbeiströmenden flüsse

 

mein schicksal ist auf der flucht

vor mir, dem mann

er seinen sinn verlor

 

mit dir zusammen vor dem feuer

erzwingen wir seine rückkehr
