Nina Simone - Suzanne (Rome 1969)

"Jesus was a sailor when he walked across the water.
And he spent a long time watching from his lonely wooden tower.
And when he knew for certain only drowning men could see him,
he said 'all men shall be sailors then, until the sea shall free them.'
But he himself was broken long before the sky would open,
forsaken, almost human,
he sank beneath your wisdom like a stone."
(Leonard Cohen through Nina Simone)
