Album : Songs of Leonard Cohen (1967)
Paroles et musique : Cohen Leonard
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.
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.
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.
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, you are really such a pretty one.
I see you've gone and changed your name again.
And just when I climbed this whole mountainside,
to wash my eyelids in the rain !
