Going Home

“I love to speak with Leonard.
He’s a sportsman and a shepherd.
He’s a lazy bastard, living in a suit.

But he does say what I tell him,
even though it isn’t welcome.
He just doesn’t have the freedom to refuse.

He will speak these words of wisdom,
like a sage, a man of vision.
Though he knows he’s really nothing,
but the brief elaboration of a tube.

Going home without my sorrow.
Going home sometime tomorrow.
Going home to where it’s better than before.

Going home without my burden.
Going home behind the curtain.
Going home without the costume that I wore”

– Leonard Cohen (Going Home) | Travel Quote of the Day
