Jöjjön most egy zenés feladat Leonard Cohen egyik számával! 

I’ve had choices

Since the day that I was born

There were voices

That told me right from wrong

If I had listened

I wouldn’t be here today

Living and dying

With the choices I made

I was tempted

At an early age I found

That I liked drinking

Oh, and I never turned it down

There were loved ones

But I chased them all away

Now I’m living and dying

With the choices I made

I’ve had choices

Since the day that I was born

I heard voices

That told me right from wrong

If I had listened

Now, I wouldn’t be here today

Living and dying

With the choices I made

I’m still paying

For the things that I have done

If I could turn back

Oh, Lord I would run

But I’m still losing

This game of life I play

Now I’m living and dying

With the choices I made

I’ve had choices

Since the day that I was born

There were voices

That told me right from wrong

If I had listened

I wouldn’t be here today

Living and dying

With the choices I made

Living and dying

With the choices I made…
