Dance Me to the End of Love

Dance me to your beauty with a burning violin
Dance me through the panic 'til I'm gathered safely in
Lift me like an olive branch and be my homeward dove
And dance me to the end of love
Yeah, dance me to the end of love

Oh let me see your beauty when the witnesses are gone
Let me feel you moving like they do in Babylon
Show me slowly what I only know the limits of
And dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love

Dance me to the wedding now, dance me on and on
Dance me very tenderly and dance me very long
We're both of us beneath our love, we're both of us above
And dance me to the end of love
Yeah, dance me to the end of love

Dance me to the children who are asking to be born
Dance me through the curtains that our kisses have outworn
Raise a tent of shelter now, though every thread is torn
And dance me to the end of love

Dance me to your beauty with a burning violin
Dance me through the panic till I'm gathered safely in
Touch me with your naked hand or touch me with your glove
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love

Leonard Cohen - Dance Me to the End of Love


Dance me to the end of love? Dance me and enjoy me until there is nothing left?
Dance me to the end of life as life ends with the end of love? Dance me to the day the love ends?
Dance me until kisses taste no more? Dance me to the end of everything?
Dance me as in take me with you, make me yours? Dance me to make us "we"?
Dance me to my death? Dance me to make me meaningful?
Dance me to make me forgive? Dance me to make me cry?
Dance me to sleep? Dance me to oblivion?
Dance me to the end of me? Dance me to the end of romance?
Dance me to the start of the ball? Dance me to the start of the cycle?
Dance me to nowhere? Dance me to pieces?
Dance me until I move no more? Dance me until bitterness flees my fingers?
Dance me until you hold me? Dance me until you tuck me in?
Dance me to my safety? Dance me to your lap?
Dance me to the apocalypse? Dance me to the Milky Way?
Dance me to the balloon floating in the air? Dance me to the balloon lying on your floor?

Dance me to me dancing you?

Pois. De vez em quando acontece uma coisa engraçada deste tipo: de repente começas a gabar uma música mais antiga que eu já conhecia e curtia, mas enquanto eu conheci pelos originais e covers de artistas do mesmo género dos originais, tu conheces por covers de outras bandas um pouco mais ao lado :p

Gosto mais da versão da Madeleine Peyroux. Aliás, há pouca coisa dela que eu não gosto, mas admito que a versão dos Dresden também não está má.

Boa escolha :)

Eu até que gostei da versão da Madeleine Peyroux, mas prefiro a dos Dresden. Mas qualquer uma é melhor que a do Leonard Cohen em si!xD

De qualquer das formas, a música parece-me sempre algo dúbia porque não sei até que ponto aquele "Dance me to the end of love" é o fim de tudo ou o fim daquele amor...
