  1. I was always working steady
    But I never called it art
    I got my shit together
    Meeting Christ and reading Marx
    It failed my little fire
    But it's bright the dying spark
    Go tell the young messiah
    What happens to the heart

    There's a mist of summer kisses
    Where I tried to double-park
    The rivalry was vicious
    The women were in charge
    It was nothing, it was business
    But it left an ugly mark
    I've come here to revisit
    What happens to the heart

    I was selling holy trinkets
    I was dressing kind of sharp
    Had a pussy in the kitchen
    And a panther in the yard

    In the prison of the gifted
    I was friendly with the guards
    So I never had to witness
    What happens to the heart

    I should have seen it coming
    After all I knew the chart
    Just to look at her was trouble
    It was trouble from the start
    Sure we played a stunning couple
    But I never liked the part
    It ain't pretty, it ain't subtle
    What happens to the heart

    Now the angel's got a fiddle
    The devil's got a harp
    Every soul is like a minnow
    Every mind is like a shark
    I've broken every window
    But the house, the house is dark
    I care but very little
    What happens to the heart

    Then I studied with this beggar
    He was filthy, he was scarred
    By the claws of many women
    He had failed to disregard
    No fable here no lesson
    No singing meadowlark
    Just a filthy beggar guessing
    What happens to the heart

    I was always working steady
    But I never called it art
    It was just some old convention
    Like the horse before the cart
    I had no trouble betting
    On the flood, against the ark
    You see, I knew about the ending
    What happens to the heart

    I was handy with a rifle
    My father's .303
    I fought for something final
    Not the right to disagree

  2. Light, this is well beyond beautiful… yet so sad… those hearts, the discouraged ones, who… “Fought for something final, not the right to disagree”! Sometimes it’s me… 💔

  3. i had no idea about this song and now i can't stop crying, this is too pure too beautiful, i feel like i don't deserve to listen to this

  4. Haven't heard his music for some time and now listening to his song, now I remembered how he's like a story teller, a brilliant one. The voice.

  5. Me Encantó.
    💙
    Ahora Tengo Que AnaLizar La LetrA..
    Pareciera Tratar Sobre El ExistenciaLism🤔..
    En Fín, el IngLés de Repente Parece Pan Comido y al Tragarte el BoLo Se te AtorA.. .

  6. HalleluYAH. Numbers 6:24-26 יְהֹוָה bless thee, and keep thee:
    יְהֹוָה make His face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee: יְהֹוָה lift up His countenance upon thee, and give thee peace. Offenbarung 22:21 Die Gnade unsers HERRN Jesu Christi sei mit euch allen! Amen.

  7. You can go through this world blinded by your own doings and thoughts always being the righteous one. This man, this beautiful artist had worked it out. RIP Mr Cohen, your work is inspirational, and I personally am grateful to receive your message. Knowing it will help, through my life struggles. The young lady in this film clip is very beautiful and courageous.

  8. I was always working steady
    But I never called it art
    I got my shit together
    Meeting Christ and reading Marx
    It failed my little fire
    But it's bright the dying spark
    Go tell the young messiah
    What happens to the heart

    There's a mist of summer kisses
    Where I tried to double-park
    The rivalry was vicious
    The women were in charge
    It was nothing, it was business
    But it left an ugly mark
    I've come here to revisit
    What happens to the heart

    I was selling holy trinkets
    I was dressing kind of sharp
    Had a pussy in the kitchen
    And a panther in the yard

    In the prison of the gifted
    I was friendly with the guards
    So I never had to witness
    What happens to the heart

    I should have seen it coming
    After all I knew the chart
    Just to look at her was trouble
    It was trouble from the start
    Sure we played a stunning couple
    But I never liked the part
    It ain't pretty, it ain't subtle
    What happens to the heart

    Now the angel's got a fiddle
    The devil's got a harp
    Every soul is like a minnow
    Every mind is like a shark
    I've broken every window
    But the house, the house is dark
    I care but very little
    What happens to the heart

    Then I studied with this beggar
    He was filthy, he was scarred
    By the claws of many women
    He had failed to disregard
    No fable here no lesson
    No singing meadowlark
    Just a filthy beggar guessing
    What happens to the heart

    I was always working steady
    But I never called it art
    It was just some old convention
    Like the horse before the cart
    I had no trouble betting
    On the flood, against the ark
    You see, I knew about the ending
    What happens to the heart

    I was handy with a rifle
    My father's .303
    I fought for something final
    Not the right to disagree

  9. Не знаю о чём песня…Но, судя по видео – а мне вот никто в жизни не встретился и не указал правильный путь тогда, когда это было жизненно необходимо… Просветление пришло поздно…

  10. 🦁Mufasa on his early morning strolls, telling 🐅Simba how he grew up hard, preparing him to fight for something final, he shouldn't call art..

  11. Since it was released I have listen and listen and try to find how could it be written …!!!
