Beautiful Life mp3

July 14, 2012 by Jesse

I was listening to Leonard Cohen on the way to the cottage the weekend this one was wrote.  As it happens, I started riffing on a lyrical theme used in one of the songs from ‘Songs of Love and Hate’ – thanks Leonard (for everything really!), hope you (and your lawyers) don’t mind…

Beautiful Life

It’s a beautiful life
Between the strain and the strife
Between the vein and the knife
Between a man and his wife

She’s a beautiful wife
Forget the blame, forget you’re right
She knows your name, she holds the light
It shows your shame, it shows your might

But all through the dream
I’ve seen the strangest scenes
In the dark it’s to the road I look to see
It’s funny how this road keeps looking out for me

It’s a beautiful life
Between the lame and the rife
Between the pain and the blithe
I hear the drum, I hear the fife

We’re all beautiful by candle light
We’re all vain, we’re all spite
Forget the feign, forget the blight
Forget what we’re not, enter the light

All through the dream
I’ve seen the strangest scenes
In the dark it’s to the road I look to see
It’s funny how this road keeps looking out for me

It’s a beautiful life
Between the strain and the strife
Between the vein and the knife
I hear the drum, I hear the fife
