Leonard Cohen lê
Almost Like The Blues


I saw some people starving
There was murder, there was rape
Their villages were burning

They were trying to escape
I couldn’t meet their glances
I was staring at my shoes
It was acid, it was tragic

It was almost like the blues

I have to die a little
Between each murderous thought
And when I’m finished thinking

I have to die a lot
There’s torture and there’s killing
There’s all my bad reviews
The war, the children missing Lord,
it’s almost like the blues

I let my heart get frozen
To keep away the rot
My father said I’m chosen
My mother said
I’m not I listened to their story

Of the Gypsies and the Jews
It was good, it wasn’t boring

It was almost like the blues

There is no G-d in heaven
And there is no Hell below
So says the great professor

Of all there is to know

But I’ve had the invitation
That a sinner can’t refuse
And it’s almost like salvation
It’s almost like the blues
