Waiting for the Miracle
Leonard Cohen Lyrics


Baby, I've been waiting
I've been waiting night and day
I didn't see the time
I waited half my life away
There were lots of invitations
And I know you sent me some
But I was waiting
For the miracle, for the miracle to come
I know you really loved me
But, you see, my hands were tied
And I know it must have hurt you
It must have hurt your pride
To have to stand beneath my window
With your bugle and your drum
And me I'm up there waiting
For the miracle, for the miracle to come

Ah I don't believe you'd like it
You wouldn't like it here
There ain't no entertainment
And the judgments are severe
The Maestro says it's Mozart
But it sounds like bubble gum
When you're waiting
For the miracle, for the miracle to come

Waiting for the miracle
There's nothing left to do
I haven't been this happy
Since the end of World War II

Nothing left to do
When you know that you've been taken
Nothing left to do
When you're begging for a crumb
Nothing left to do
When you've got to go on waiting
Waiting for the miracle to come

I dreamed about you, baby
It was just the other night
Most of you was naked
Ah but some of you was light
The sands of time were falling
From your fingers and your thumb
And you were waiting
For the miracle, for the miracle to come

Ah baby, let's get married
We've been alone too long
Let's be alone together
Let's see if we're that strong
Yeah let's do something crazy,
Something absolutely wrong
While we're waiting
For the miracle, for the miracle to come

Nothing left to do
When you know that you've been taken
Nothing left to do
When you're begging for a crumb
Nothing left to do
When you've got to go on waiting
Waiting for the miracle to come

When you've fallen on the highway
And you're lying in the rain,
And they ask you how you're doing
Of course you'll say you can't complain
If you're squeezed for information,
That's when you've got to play it dumb
You just say you're out there waiting
For the miracle, for the miracle to come

Не буду писать о том, насколько велик Леонард Коэн, насколько притягательны его песни, насколько осиротел мир после его кончины...
Да, невозможно слушать его композиции и оставаться равнодушным...
Этой песне более тридцати лет, но она не потеряла своей актуальности и привлекательности. Впрочем, как и все его шедевры...
Спасибо Мастеру! Браво и вечная память!

Перевод Вячеслава Чистякова.

Я, крошка, постоянно ждал,
но пребывал в незнании -   
полжизни пролетело      
при этом ожидании.
Мне предлагали многое,
и ты мне предлагала,
а я, вот, жаждал чуда,
мечтал, чтобы настало.
Я знаю, – ты любила,
но нам недоставало   
возможности быть вместе,
а гордость пострадала:
под окнами моими 
ты в барабан стучала,
а я всё жаждал чуда,
мечтал, чтобы настало. 
Хорошего тут мало:
ни тени наслажденья,
когда тебя не слышат,
плюс злобность осужденья.
Маэстро скажет: Моцарт, -
мне всё равно покуда   
живу и ожидаю
когда случится чудо -
на чудо уповаешь,
то, значит, ничего
тебе не остаётся,
как только ждать его.
Такого счастья для себя 
не знал с конца войны.
Ничто тут не поможет…
Как попрошайка вы.
Ничто тут не поможет...
Что вы  должны желать,
Что чувствовать должны,
какие устремления,
когда вам надо ждать 
чудесное мгновение? 
Ты мне приснилась, крошка, -
прислала мне привет, -
была почти что голой,
но излучала свет;
песок часов струился
сквозь пальцы рук твоих,
ты ожидала чуда
для нас с тобой двоих.
Давай жить вместе, крошка, -
Пусть и излишний ход, -
Отдельно будем верить 
что чудо к нам придёт.
Ничто тут не поможет…
Без сил, вот, ляжешь вдруг,
свалившись на дорогу,
и спросят: Как ты, друг?
Ничто тут не поможет…
Прикинешься тупым:   
Уже который год,
я поджидаю чудо, 
надеясь, что придёт.



Dmytro Bryushkov

В ожидании чуда
Крошка, ждал я это-
Ожидал я день и ночь.
Время не заметил-
И пол- жизни ушло прочь.
Было много приглашений-
Твой вопрос ответ найдёт-
Как я ждал без сожалений
Чуда- чуда, что придёт!
Знаю, ты меня любила-
Но связали руки мне.
Боль тебе ведь причинил я-
Гордость уязвил вполне.
Под окном тебя ждать должен-
Барабан и горн твой ждёт-
Чтобы ждать, я создан-
Чуда- чуда, что придёт.
Ты права- нет восхищений-
Преждевремены они-
Больше не до развлечений-
Наши судьи так строги!
Говорит Маэстро- «Моцарт»-
Но лишь фальш он издаёт-
Когда каждый ожидает-
Чуда- чуда, что придёт.
В ожидании чуда-
Что же можем ещё мы-
Счастье это не забуду-
Я с конца былой войны.
Ничего не сделать,
Когда ты уже отмечен,
Ничего не сделать,
Хлеба корка не спасёт-
Ничего не сделать,
Когда ты всё ожидаешь
Чуда- чуда, что придёт.
О тебе мечтал я, крошка-
Ночью мысли те пришли-
Опоздали вы немножко,
Были вы обнажены.
Но пески тех лет упали-
Пальцы рук открыв и вот-
Ну а вы так ожидали-
Чуда- чуда, что придёт.
Нам с тобою б пожениться -
Одиноки были мы-
Одиноки будем вместе-
Будем вместе мы сильны.
Делать всё с тобою будем-
Глупо всё, наоборот-
Когда ждём мы чуда-
Чуда-чуда, что придёт.
Ничего не сделать,
Когда ты уже отмечен,
Ничего не сделать,
Хлеба корка не спасёт-
Ничего не сделать,
Когда ты всё ожидаешь
Чуда- чуда, что придёт.
И когда упал на трассе,
И лежишь ты под дождём,
Тебя спросят: «Всё прекрасно?»
Ты ответишь: « Всё путём».
Коль ответ дать вынуждают-
Ты играй, как идиот-
Ты скажи, здесь ожидают
Чуда- чуда, что придёт.

(Intro}

[Verse 1]
Baby, I've been waiting
I've been waiting night and day
I didn't see the time
Yeah I waited half my life away
There were lots of invitations
And I know you sent me some
But I was waiting
For the miracle, for the miracle to come

[Verse 2]
I know you really loved me
But, you see, my hands were tied
I know it must have hurt you
It must have hurt your pride
To have to stand beneath my window
With your bugle and your drum
And me I'm up there waiting
For the miracle, for the miracle to come

[Verse 3]
Yeah, I don't believe you'd like it
You wouldn't like it here
There ain't no entertainment
And the judgements are severe
The Maestro says it's Mozart
But it sounds like bubble gum
When you're waiting
For the miracle, for the miracle to come

[Interlude]
Waiting for the miracle
There's nothing left to do
I haven't been this happy
Since the end of World War II

[Chorus]
Nothing left to do
When you know that you've been taken
Nothing left to do
When you're begging for a crumb
Nothing left to do
When you've got to go on waiting
Waiting for the miracle to come

[Verse 4]
Yeah I dreamed about you, baby
It was just the other night
Most of you was naked
Ah but some of you was light
The sands of time were falling
From your fingers and your thumb
And you were waiting
For the miracle, for the miracle to come

[Verse 5]
Ah baby, let's get married
We've been alone too long
Let's be alone together
Let's see if we're that strong
Yeah let's do something crazy
Something absolutely wrong
While we're waiting
For the miracle, for the miracle to come

[Chorus]
Nothing left to do
When you know you've been taken
Nothing left to do
When you're begging for a crumb
Nothing left to do
When you've got to go on waiting
Waiting for the miracle to come

[Verse 7]
When you've fallen on the highway
And you're lying in the rain
And they ask you how you're doing
Of course you'll say you can't complain --
If you're squeezed for information
That's when you've got to play it dumb:
You just say you're out there waiting
For the miracle, for the miracle to come

{Outro}

Baby, I've been waiting
I've been waiting night and day
I didn't see the time
I waited half my life away
There were lots of invitations
And I know you sent me some
But I was waiting
For the miracle, for the miracle to come


I know you really loved me
But, you see, my hands were tied
And I know it must have hurt you
It must have hurt your pride
To have to stand beneath my window
With your bugle and your drum
And me I'm up there waiting
For the miracle, for the miracle to come


Ah I don't believe you'd like it
You wouldn't like it here
There ain't no entertainment
And the judgments are severe
The Maestro says it's Mozart
But it sounds like bubble gum
When you're waiting
For the miracle, for the miracle to come


Waiting for the miracle
There's nothing left to do
I haven't been this happy
Since the end of World War II
Nothing left to do
When you know that you've been taken
Nothing left to do
When you're begging for a crumb
Nothing left to do
When you've got to go on waiting
Waiting for the miracle to come


I dreamed about you, baby
It was just the other night
Most of you was naked
Ah but some of you was light
The sands of time were falling
From your fingers and your thumb
And you were waiting
For the miracle, for the miracle to come


Ah baby, let's get married
We've been alone too long
Let's be alone together
Let's see if we're that strong
Yeah let's do something crazy,
Something absolutely wrong
While we're waiting
For the miracle, for the miracle to come


Nothing left to do
When you know that you've been taken
Nothing left to do
When you're begging for a crumb
Nothing left to do
When you've got to go on waiting
Waiting for the miracle to come
When you've fallen on the highway
And you're lying in the rain,
And they ask you how you're doing
Of course you'll say you can't complain
If you're squeezed for information,
That's when you've got to play it dumb
You just say you're out there waiting
For the miracle, for the miracle to come



Mir Muz

В ожидании чуда* (перевод Зотов Олег)

Я ждал долго, детка,
Ночи и дни напролет.
Время незаметно
В ожидании идет.
Было много приглашений,
Часть их - Вашею рукой,
Но я весь в ожидании чуда, что...
Что идет своею тропой.

Знаю, меня Вы любили,
Но мне рук не развязать.
Вам, должно быть, было больно
Свою гордость усмирять.
Встать бы Вам у моих окон
С барабаном и трубой,
Пока я здесь в ожидании чуда, что...
Что идет своею тропой.

Я уверен, Вам несносно,
Вам несносно было б тут
Жить без всяких развлечений
И при этом строгий суд.
Мастер говорит – вот Моцарт,
Но звук вязкий и пустой.
Когда Вы в ожидании чуда, что...
Что идет своею тропой.

Я весь в ожидании чуда,
Ничего не поделать со мной.
Последнее счастье ко мне приходило
В конце Второй мировой.

И ничего не поделать,
Когда попал в оборот крутой.
И ничего не поделать,
Когда молишь о крошке малой.
И ничего не поделать,
Нужно просто ждать чуда, что...
Что идет своею тропой.

Пригрезил себе я, детка,
Как-то ночью одной
Вас почти обнаженной,
Светлой и легкой такой.
Песок времени тихо струился,
Направляемый Вашей рукой,
И Вы были вся в ожидании чуда, что...
Что идет своею тропой.

Эх, лучше бы нам пожениться,
Слишком долго мы были одни,
И, став одинокими вместе,
Проверим, как чувства крепки.
Добавим крупицу безумия,
Глупости каплю дурной.
Пока мы в ожидании чуда, что...
Что идет своею тропой.

И ничего не поделать,
Когда попал в оборот крутой.
И ничего не поделать,
Когда молишь о крошке малой.
И ничего не поделать,
Нужно просто ждать чуда, что...
Что идет своею тропой.

Когда упадешь на дороге
И в луже будешь лежать,
Спросят тебя – все в порядке?
А что им в ответ сказать?
Не жаловаться ж в самом деле?
И сделав вид тупой,
Ответишь: Я просто жду чуда здесь,
Что идет своею тропой.

@BOCA BEC I hope they know that is happening no matter what power they think they wield withholding joy from people being as empty of dignity as they are, holding indefinitely when they've already collected on the bond.

BOCA BEC

I have a GF who has been in prison for 21 years now. I love her and she loves me. I am 74 and she is 44. The miracle being she was put in my path for a reason. It's time for her to be paroled. God has always been good to me. I have faith that He is not going to stop now. She keeps my spirit alive and gives me hope. I will protect her and keep her safe. She will never offend again. Our life will be the intertwining of the root to the tree, which needles will shimmer and shine in the sun.
