and she feeds you tea and oranges

françoise hardy.

"Now Suzanne takes your hand
And she leads you to the river
She is wearing rags and feathers
From Salvation Army counters

And the sun pours down like honey

On our lady of the harbour

And she shows you where to look

Among the garbage and the flowers

There are heroes in the seaweed

There are children in the morning
They are leaning out for love
And they will lean that way forever

While Suzanne holds the mirror

And you want to travel with her

And you want to travel blind

And you know that you can trust her

For she's touched your perfect body
with her mind."

- Suzanne, Leonard Cohen, 1967.

Arranged by John Cameron.

Thanks to a major Vitamin-C boost, this cold may finally be receding.

Ah, look out, 'cuz I'm...
