Songs of Leonard Cohen (1967)

Winter Lady

Leonard Cohen

Winter Lady da Songs of Leonard Cohen, Leonard Cohen
Winter Lady, testo
Trav'ling lady, stay awhile
until the night is over.
I'm just a station on your way,
I know I'm not your lover.

Well I lived with a child of snow
when I was a soldier,
and I fought every man for her
until the nights grew colder.

She used to wear her hair like you
except when she was sleeping,
and then she'd weave it on a loom
of smoke and gold and breathing.

And why are you so quiet now
standing there in the doorway?
You chose your journey long before
you came upon this highway.

Trav'ling lady stay awhile
until the night is over.
I'm just a station on your way,
I know I'm not your lover.
Donna d’Inverno, traduzione
Donna viaggiante, rimani con me
fino a quanto la notte non sia passata
Sono solo una fermata sulla tua strada,
sai bene che non sono il tuo amante.

Ho vissuto con un bambino di neve
quando ero un soldato,
e ho combattutto ogni uomo per lei
finchè la notte non diventò più fredda.

Aveva capelli simili ai tuoi
a parte quando dormiva
e poi li tesseva su un telaio
di fumo e oro e respiri.

E perchè sei così silenziosa ora
e rimani lì ferma sulla porta?
Avevi deciso il tuo viaggio molto prima
di passare da questa strada.

Donna viaggiante, rimani con me
fino a quanto la notte non sia passata
Sono solo una fermata sulla tua strada,
sai bene che non sono il tuo amante.
