Mix – Leonard Cohen

Lyrics: Dance me to your beauty with a burning violin Dance me through the panic ’til I’m gathered safely in Lift me like an olive branch and be my homeward dove Dance me to the end of love Dance me to the end of love Oh let me see your beauty when the witnesses are gone Let me feel you moving like they do in Babylon Show me slowly what I only know the limits of Oh dance me to the end of love Dance me to the end of love Dance me to the wedding now, oh dance me on and on Dance me very tenderly and dance me very long We’re both of us beneath our love, we’re both of us above Dance me to the end of love Dance me to the end of love Dance me to the children who are asking to be born Dance me through the curtains that our kisses have outworn Raise a tent of shelter now, though every thread is torn Dance me to the end of love Dance me to your beauty with a burning violin Dance me through the panic ’til I’m gathered safely in Touch me with your naked hand, touch me with your glove Dance me to the end of love Dance me to the end of love Dance me to the end of love.

Leonard Cohen – Bird On The Wire (Live in London)

Lyrics: Like a bird on a wire Like a drunk in a midnight choir I have tried in my way to be free Like a worm on the hook Like a knight from some old-fashioned book I have saved all my ribbons for thee And if I have been unkind I hope that you will just let it go by And if I have been untrue I hope you know it was never to you Like a babe stillborn Like a beast with his horn I have torn everyone who reached out for me But I swear by this song And by all that I have done wrong I will make it all up to thee I saw a beggar leaning on his wooden crutch He said to me: “You must not ask for so much” And the pretty woman leaning in her darkened door She cried to me: “Hey, why not ask for more?” Like a bird on the wire Like a drunk in a midnight choir I have tried in my way to be free.
