Leonard Cohen – ‘You Know Who I Am’

You Know Who I Am 

(by Leonard Cohen)

I cannot follow you, my love,

you cannot follow me.

I am the distance you put between

all of the moments that we will be.


You know who I am,

you've stared at the sun,

well I am the one who loves

changing from nothing to one.


Sometimes I need you naked,

sometimes I need you wild,

I need you to carry my children in

and I need you to kill a child.


You know who I am...


If you should ever track me down

I will surrender there

and I will leave with you one broken man

whom I will teach you to repair.


You know who I am...


I cannot follow you, my love,

you cannot follow me.

I am the distance you put between

all of the moments that we will be.


You know who I am...

    • I liked him always, bur somehow, the more i listen, the more I find out how it fills in the words, in the right places. Great poet and composer indeed, and ultimate enthusiasm!
