Leonard Cohen

Undertow

I set out one night
When the tide was low
There were signs in the sky
But I did not know
Id be caught in the grip
Of the undertow
Ditched on a beach
Where the sea hates to go
With a child in my arms
And a chill in my soul
And my heart the shape
Of a begging bowl

Fingerprints

I touched you once too often
Now I don't know who I am
My fingerprints were missing
When I wiped away the jam.

Yes I called my fingerprints all night
But they don't seem to care
The last time that I saw them
They were leafing through your hair.

Minute Prologue

Ive been listening
To all the dissention.
Ive been listening
To all the pain.
And I feel that no matter
What I do for you,
Its going to come back again.
But I think that I can heal it,
But I think that I can heal it,
Im a fool, but I think I can heal it
With this song.

Always

Ill be loving you always
With a love thats true, always
When the things youve planned
Need a helping hand
I will understand, always, always
Days may not be fair, always
Thats when Ill be there, always
Not for just an hour
Not for just a day
Not for just a year, but always

Jazz Police

Can you tell me why the bells are ringing?
Nothing's happened in a million years
I've been sitting here since Wednesday morning
Wednesday morning can't believe my ears.

Jazz police are looking through my folders
Jazz police are talking to my niece
Jazz police have got their final orders
Jazzer

Because Of

Because of a few songs
Wherein I spoke of their mystery,
Women have been
Exceptionally kind
to my old age.
They make a secret place
In their busy lives
And they take me there.
They become naked
In their different ways
and they say,
"Look at me, Leonard
Look at me one last time."
Then they bend over the bed
And cover me up
Like a baby that is shivering.

Hunter's Lullaby

Your father's gone a-hunting
He's deep in the forest so wild
And he cannot take his wife with him
He cannot take his child.

Your father's gone a-hunting
In the quicksand and the clay
And a woman cannot follow him
Although she knows the way.

Your father's gone a-hunting
Through the silver and the glass
Where only greed can enter
But spirit

Go No More A-Roving

So well go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart be still as loving,
And the moon be still as bright.
For the sword outwears its sheath,
And the soul outwears the breast,
And the heart must pause to breathe,
And love itself have rest.
Though the night was made for loving,
And the day returns too soon,
Yet well go no more a-roving
By the light of the moon.

In My Secret Life

I saw you this morning
You were moving so fast
Can't seem to loosen my grip
On the past
And I miss you so much
There's no one inside
And we're still making love
In my secret life.

I smile when I'm angry
I cheat and I lie
I'll do what I have to do
To get back
But I know what is wrong
And I know what is right
And I die for the truth
In my secret life.

Hold on

I Tried To Leave You

I tried to leave you, I dont deny
I closed the book on us, at least a hundred times.
Id wake up every morning by your side.
The years go by, you lose your pride.
The babys crying, so you do not go outside,
And all your work its right before your eyes.
Goodnight, my darling, I hope youre satisfied,
The bed is kind of narrow, but my arms are open wide.
And heres a man still working for your smile.
