I used to be your favorite drunk
Good for one more laugh
Then we both ran out of luck
Luck was all we ever had
You put on a uniform
To fight the Civil War
You looked so good I didn’t care
What side you’re fighting for

It wasn’t all that easy
When you up and walked away
But I’ll save that little story
For another rainy day
I know the burden’s heavy
As you wheel it through the night
Some people say it’s empty
But that don’t mean it’s light

You left me with the dishes
And a baby in the bath
You’re tight with the militias
You wear their camouflage
You always said we’re equal
So let me march with you
Just an extra in the sequel
To the old red white and blue

Baby don’t ignore me
We were smokers we were friends
Forget that tired story
Of betrayal and revenge
I see the Ghost of Culture
With numbers on his wrist
Salute some new conclusion
Which all of us have missed

I cried for you this morning
And I’ll cry for you again
But I’m not in charge of sorrow
So please don’t ask me when
There may be wine and roses
And magnums of champagne
But we’ll never no we’ll never
Ever be that drunk again

The party’s over
But I’ve landed on my feet
I’ll be standing on this corner
Where there used to be a street

Album_Leonard Cohen - Popular Problems

Prevod pesme

Jedna ulica

Nekad sam bio tvoj omiljeni pijanac
Dobar za još jednu zabavu
A onda nam je oboma sreće ponestalo
Sreća je bila jedino što ikad imali smo
Ti si uniformu obukla
Da bi se u Građanskom ratu borila
Tako si dobro izgledala da me nije bilo briga
Na čijoj strani si se borila

Nije baš bilo lako
Kad si se pokupila i otišla
Ali tu pričicu ću ostaviti
za neki drugi crni dan
Znam da je veliko to breme
koje kotrljaš kroz noć
Neki kažu da je prazno
Ali to ne znači da je lako

Ostavila si me sa sudima
I bebom u kadici
Znam da si bliska sa narodnom armijom
Nosiš njihovu maskirnu uniformu
Uvek si govorila da smo jednaki
Dakle, pusti me da marširam s tobom
Samo dodatak u nizu
poznatog crveno belo plavog

Dušo, nemoj me ignorisati
Bili smo pušači, bili smo prijatelji
Zaboravi na tu dosadnu priču
o izdaji i osveti
Ja vidim Duha kulture
sa brojevima na ručnom zglobu
Pozdravlja neki novi zaključak
Koji je svima nama promakao

Jutros sam za tobom plakao
I plakaću za tobom ponovo
Ali ja tugom ne vladam
zato te molim da ne pitaš me kada
će ruže cvetati
i šampanjac teći
Ali mi nikada, ne, mi nikada
više nećemo biti tako pijani

Žurka je gotova
A ja sam se dočekao na noge
Stojaću na ovom uglu
Gde je nekad bila jedna ulica
