Leonard Cohen - Because Of Lyrics




Because of a few songs
Wherein I spoke of their mystery,
Women have been
Exceptionally kind
to my old age.
They make a secret place
In their busy lives
And they take me there.
They become naked
In their different ways
and they say,
"Look at me, Leonard
Look at me one last time."
Then they bend over the bed
And cover me up
Like a baby that is shivering.

Leonard Cohen Because Of Comments
  1. Harry Versteege

    Wie heeft de melancholische liefde beter kunnen beschrijven dan Leonard Cohen. Niemand toch?

  2. My name is not Jerome

    The man ages but the libido doesn't. What a horrific truth.

  3. Marius Moldovan

    Leonard really loved women...like me..

  4. Kay Foster

    Great words. Love your music and poetry. This will live on for ever. ♥️♥️♥️♥️

  5. amakatov

    Настоящие музыканты не умирают.... Они просто перестают давать концерты...

  6. Lajosné Papp

    Leg kedvesebb ėnekesem imádom a hangját,2🤗

  7. Михаил Сергопольцев

    Из-за нескольких песен,
    Где я говорил об их тайне,
    Женщины бывают
    Чрезвычайно добры
    К моему почтенному возрасту.
    Они создают тайное местечко
    В своей интенсивной жизни
    И забирают меня туда.
    Они обнажаются
    Разными способами
    И говорят:
    «Посмотри на меня, Леонард.
    Посмотри на меня последний раз»
    Затем они наклоняются к кровати
    И накрывают меня,
    Словно дрожащее дитя.

    2570 « WOMEN HAVE BEEN EXCEPTIONALLY KIND »… (1)

    La chaleur de la chair est remède à l’oubli
    Qui déjà nous attend la froideur hivernale
    Saura nous recouvrir d’une terre banale
    Que demain nous réserve en perpétuel lit…

    La douceur de la peau se révèle câline
    Le rêve bien vivant paré de féminin
    Sait suspendre l’effet du temps de son venin
    D’une onde impénétrable étrange sibylline…

    La couleur de l’amour chasse efface le gris
    D’un feu sans artifice (instants multicolores)
    Le ciel des amoureux chante ses météores
    Son regard éclatant troublé les voit surpris…

    Le penseur est ému lui qui si souvent doute
    Il constate qu’ici tout est clair évident
    Le sens dans sa recherche est là réconfortant
    En plus dans sa beauté paisible il nous envoute…

    La valeur du présent c’est aussi ce clin d’œil
    Que nous offre la vie aimable souriante
    La forêt du bonheur belle luxuriante
    Gentille nous ménage un remarquable accueil…

    Les danseurs sur la piste avec le cœur agile
    Loin d’hier de demain s’enivrent gentiment
    Vont les yeux dans les yeux s’étonnent tendrement
    Sur la mer des tourments leur amour est une île…


    (1) Les femmes sont étonnamment gentilles

    "they become naked". What a thing to say

  76. SleepTightShipOfDrea

    To paraphrase the Nine Nine: he pulls. He puuuuuulllllllllsss.

    SleepTightShipOfDrea

    well I guess he pullllllllllllllled

  77. Heidi Bujak

    The video is wrong beyond mind and folly! He was deeper then flesh could hold.. He said because of a few songs. He saw a womans mystery where most men miss. Being naked to a man is not sex. Being naked is exposure to a man that dared to reach and see where the husband did not. It is past flesh. When they are exceptionally kind of secret places is becoming naked to him and expose the bending over the bed. He melts in their passions as he is covered up like a nursing child. Like a baby. This fish tank video of naked woman jumping on the bed is about the most pathetic interpretation of him and this song I have yet to see on youtube.

  78. MsAdesio

    the look of pure bliss on her face at 2:18 , that luckiest of all women
