Like a refugee

You can add up the parts
but you won’t have the sum
You can strike up the march
there is no drum
Every heart to love will come
but like a refugee.

Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack in everything
That’s how the light gets in.

— Leonard Cohen, ‘Anthem’
