So Long, Marianne - Leonard Cohen

    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

    Repeat Chorus

    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

    Repeat Chorus

    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

    Repeat Chorus

    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

    Repeat Chorus

    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!

    Repeat Chorus
