LETRA Y MÚSICA. LEONARD COHEN.

DANCE ME TO THE END OF LOVE.


Dance me to the end of love, se dió a conocer en el disco de 1984 de Leonard Cohen, llamado Various Positions, y es una de las grandes canciones del poeta-cantante canadiense, reconocido por décadas como uno de los más importantes songwriters del siglo pasado.

Un inspirado Cohen (su estado natural) creó esta canción de amor llena de imágenes sugestivas y bellas, de entrada, un verso contundentemente bello "Llévame bailando hasta tu belleza, con un violín ardiente" y más adelante muchos versos conmovedores, ejemplo; "levántame como una rama de olivo y sé mi paloma que me guía a casa".



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
Dance me to the end of love
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
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
Dance me to the end of love
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
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
