The Goal

  • I can't leave my house
    Or answer the phone
    I'm going down again
    But I'm not alone

    Settling at last
    Accounts of the soul
    This for the trash
    That paid in full

    As for the fall, it
    Began long ago
    Can't stop the rain
    Can't stop the snow

    I sit in my chair
    I look at the street
    The neighbor returns
    My smile of defeat

    I move with the leaves
    I shine with the chrome
    I'm almost alive
    I'm almost at home

    No one to follow
    And nothing to teach
    Except that the goal
    Falls short of the reach Writer/s: Adam Cohen, Leonard Cohen
