Testo LOVE CORINTHIANS IIand5813 – Joni Mitchell

Testo della canzone LOVE CORINTHIANS IIand5813 di Joni Mitchell
Album: Wild Things Run Fast
Although I speak in tongues
Of men and angels
I’m just sounding brass
And tinkling cymbals without love–

Love suffers long–
Love is kind!–
Enduring all things–
Love has no evil in mind

If I had the gift of prophecy–
And all the knowledge–
And the faith to move the mountains
Even if I understood all of the mysteries–
If I didn’t have love
I’d be nothing

Love–never looks for love–
Love’s not puffed up–
Or envious–
Or touchy–
Because it rejoices in the truth
Not in iniquity
Love sees like a child sees

As a child I spoke as a child–
I thought and I understood as a child–
But when I became a woman–
I put away childish things
And began to see through a glass darkly

Where, as a child, I saw it face to face
Now, I only know it in part
Fractions in me
Of faith and hope and love
And of these great three
Love’s the greatest beauty
