Anthem


The birds they sang
at the break of day
Start again
I heard them say
Don't dwell on what
has passed away
or what is yet to be
 
Ah the wars they will
be fought again
The holy dove
she will be caught again
bought and sold
and bought again
The dove is never free
 
Ring the bells that still can ring
forget your perfect offering
there is a crack in everything
that's how the light gets in


~ Leonard Cohen
