LEONARD COHEN lyrics : "Going Home"


[Speaking:]
I love to speak with Leonard

He's a sportsman and a shepherd
He's a lazy [email protected]$(
Living in a suit.

But he does say what I tell him
Even though it isn't welcome
He will never have the freedom

To refuse

He will speak these words of wisdom

Like a sage, a man of vision
Though he knows he's really nothing
But the brief elaboration of a tube


[Hook:]
Going home

Without my sorrow
Going home
Sometime tomorrow

To where it's better
Than before.
Going home

Without my burden
Going home
Behind the curtain

Going home
Without the costume
That I wore.


He wants to write a love song
An anthem of forgiving

A manual for living with defeat
A cry above the suffering
A sacrifice recovering

But that isn't what I need him to complete.

I want to make him certain

That he doesn't have a burden
That he doesn't need a vision.
That he only has permission

To do my instant bidding
That is to SAY what I've told him.
To repeat


Hook:
Going home

Without my sorrow
Going home
Sometime tomorrow

Going home
To where it's better
Than before.

Going home
Without my burden
Going home

Behind the curtain
Going home
Without the costume

That I wore.

[Hook - singing]


I love to speak with Leonard
He's a sportsman and a shepherd

He's a lazy [email protected]$(
Living in a suit.
