Leonard Cohen – Seems So Long Ago, Nancy

Come over to the window, my little darling, I’d like to try to read your palm. I used to think I was some kind of Gypsy boy before I let you take me home. Now so long, Marianne, it’s time that we began to laugh and cry and cry and laugh about it all again. Well you know that I love to live with you, but you make me forget so very much. I forget to pray for the angels and then the angels forget to pray for us. Now so long, Marianne, it’s time that we began … We met when we were almost young deep in the green lilac park. You held on to me like I was a crucifix, as we went kneeling through the dark. Oh so long, Marianne, it’s time that we began … Your letters they all say that you’re beside me now. Then why do I feel alone? I’m standing on a ledge and your fine spider web is fastening my ankle to a stone. Now so long, Marianne, it’s time that we began … For now I need your hidden love. I’m cold as a new razor blade. You left when I told you I was curious, I never said that I was brave. Oh so long, Marianne, it’s time that we began … Oh, you are really such a pretty...

Leonard Cohen – Take This Longing

Leonard Cohen – Always

(By Irving Berlin) (Oh friends, … don’t matter if you’re a man or a woman. If you’re in love with somebody, these are the words that you got to learn to say. Now listen carefully. Here it comes…) I’ll be loving you always with a love that’s true, always When the thing you’ve planned needs my helping hand, I will understand, always, always Days may not be fair, always Yeah but that’s when I’ll be there, always Not for just an hour, Not for just a day, Not for just a year, but always. I said that I’ll be loving you, always with a love that’s true, always. When the thing you’ve planned needs my helping hand, I will, I will understand, always, always (Oh that’s pretty … that’s pretty too … Oh darling) The days may not be fair, always Yeah but that’s when I’ll be there, always Not for just a second, or a minute, or an hour, Not for just a weekend and a shake down in the shower, Not for just the summer and the winter going sour, But always, always, always (Ok if you don’t want to quit, let’s try it one more time) I’ll be loving you, always with a love that’s true, always. When the thing you’ve planned needs my helping hand, I will understand, I will, I will understand, always, always...

Leonard Cohen – Famous Blue Raincoat

It’s four in the morning, the end of December I’m writing you now just to see if you’re better New York is cold, but I like where I’m living There’s music on Clinton Street all through the evening. I hear that you’re building your little house deep in the desert You’re living for nothing now, I hope you’re keeping some kind of record. Yes, and Jane came by with a lock of your hair She said that you gave it to her That night that you planned to go clear Did you ever go clear? Ah, the last time we saw you you looked so much older Your famous blue raincoat was torn at the shoulder You’d been to the station to meet every train And you came home without Lili Marlene And you treated my woman to a flake of your life And when she came back she was nobody’s wife. Well I see you there with the rose in your teeth One more thin gypsy thief Well I see Jane’s awake — She sends her regards. And what can I tell you my brother, my killer What can I possibly say? I guess that I miss you, I guess I forgive you I’m glad you stood in my way. If you ever come by here, for Jane or for me Your enemy is sleeping, and his woman...

Leonard Cohen – Everybody Knows

Everybody knows that the dice are loaded Everybody rolls with their fingers crossed Everybody knows that the war is over Everybody knows the good guys lost Everybody knows the fight was fixed The poor stay poor, the rich get rich That’s how it goes Everybody knows Everybody knows that the boat is leaking Everybody knows that the captain lied Everybody got this broken feeling Like their father or their dog just died Everybody talking to their pockets Everybody wants a box of chocolates And a long stem rose Everybody knows Everybody knows that you love me baby Everybody knows that you really do Everybody knows that you’ve been faithful Ah give or take a night or two Everybody knows you’ve been discreet But there were so many people you just had to meet Without your clothes And everybody knows Everybody knows, everybody knows That’s how it goes Everybody knows Everybody knows, everybody knows That’s how it goes Everybody knows And everybody knows that it’s now or never Everybody knows that it’s me or you And everybody knows that you live forever Ah when you’ve done a line or two Everybody knows the deal is rotten Old Black Joe’s still pickin’ cotton For your ribbons and bows And everybody knows And everybody knows that the Plague is coming Everybody knows that it’s moving fast Everybody knows that the naked man...
