Watch “Thousand Kisses Deep – Leonard Cohen, London 2009 לאונרד כהן לונדון” on YouTube

  1. 2 of 5
    The ponies run, the girls are young
    The odds are there to beat
    You win a while and then it’s done
    Your little winning streak
    And summoned now to deal
    With your invincible defeat
    You live your life as if it’s real
    A thousand kisses deep

    I’m turning tricks, I’m getting fixed
    I’m back on boogie street
    You lose your grip and then you slip
    Into the masterpiece
    And maybe I had miles to drive
    And promises to keep
    You ditch it all to stay alive
    A thousand kisses deep

    And sometimes when the night is slow
    The wretched and the meek
    We gather up our hearts and go
    A thousand kisses deep

    Confined to sex we pressed against
    The limits of the sea
    I saw there were no oceans left
    For scavengers like me
    I made it to the forward deck
    I blessed our remnant fleet
    And then consented to be wrecked
    A thousand kisses deep

    I’m turning tricks I’m getting fixed
    I’m back on boogie street
    I guess they won’t exchange the gifts
    That you were meant to keep
    And quiet is the thought of you
    The file on you complete
    Except what we forgot to do
    A thousand kisses deep

    And sometimes when the night is slow
    The wretched and the meek
    We gather up our hearts and go
    A thousand kisses deep

    The ponies run, the girls are young
    The odds are there to beat
    You win a while and then it’s done
    Your little winning streak
    And summoned now to deal
    With your invincible defeat
    You live your life as if it’s real
    A thousand kisses deep

    Songwriters: Leonard Cohen / Sharon Robinson
