Leonard Cohen Live In London 2009 - Tower of Song

thank you so much friends
i was having a drink with my old teacher he is 102 now
it was about 97 at the time
pouring a drink
he clicked my glass and said
"excuse me for not dying"
I kinda feel the same way
i want to thank you not just for this evening
but for the many years you kept my songs alive
I appreciate

I don't want anyone to get alarm now
probably you've never seen one of this before
it goes by itself

Well my friends are gone and my hair is grey
I ache in the places where I used to play
And I'm crazy for love but I'm not coming on
I'm just paying my rent every day
Oh in the Tower of Song

I said to Hank Williams: how lonely does it get?
Hank Williams hasn't answered yet
But I hear him coughing all night long
A hundred floors above me
In the Tower of Song

I was born like this, I had no choice
I was born with the gift of a golden voice
And twenty-seven angels from the Great Beyond
They tied me to this table right here
In the Tower of Song

So you can stick your little pins in that voodoo doll
I'm very sorry, baby, doesn't look like me at all
I'm standing by the window where the light is strong
Ah they don't let a woman kill you
Not in the Tower of Song

Now you can say that I've grown bitter but of this you may be sure
The rich have got their channels in the bedrooms of the poor
And there's a mighty judgement coming, but I may be wrong
You see, you hear these funny voices
In the Tower of Song

I see you standing on the other side
I don't know how the river got so wide
I loved you baby, way back when
And all the bridges are burning that we might have crossed
But I feel so damn close to everything that we lost
We'll never have to lose it again

So I bid you farewell, I don't know when I'll be back
There moving us tomorrow to that tower down the track
But you'll be hearing from me darling, long after I'm gone
I'll be speaking to you sweetly
From a window in the Tower of Song

Yeah my friends are gone and my hair is grey
I ache in the places where I used to play
And I'm crazy for love but I'm not coming on
I'm just paying my rent every day
in the Tower of Song

Dont stop
Dont leave me here alone
dont ever stop
sing me to bed
and sing me through the morning
because i am so grateful to you becasue
tonight its become clear to me
tonight the great mysteries have unravel
i penetrated to the very core of things
and i have stumbled on the answer

Are you truly hungry for the answer
then you are just the people i want to tell it to
because is a rare thing partners
ill let you know it now
