Leonard Cohen - Hey, That's No Way To Say Goodbye Lyrics




I loved you in the morning, our kisses deep and warm,
your hair upon the pillow like a sleepy golden storm,
yes, many loved before us, I know that we are not new,
in city and in forest they smiled like me and you,
but now it's come to distances and both of us must try,
your eyes are soft with sorrow,
Hey, that's no way to say goodbye.
I'm not looking for another as I wander in my time,
walk me to the corner, our steps will always rhyme
you know my love goes with you as your love stays with me,
it's just the way it changes, like the shoreline and the sea,
but let's not talk of love or chains and things we can't untie,
your eyes are soft with sorrow,
Hey, that's no way to say goodbye.

I loved you in the morning, our kisses deep and warm,
your hair upon the pillow like a sleepy golden storm,
yes many loved before us, I know that we are not new,
in city and in forest they smiled like me and you,
but let's not talk of love or chains and things we can't untie,
your eyes are soft with sorrow,
Hey, that's no way to say goodbye.

    This song should guide the young songwriters of recent times, that simplicity & devastating impact are not easy to achieve, you have to feel it. Then you have to turn the sadness n the madness of your young life and go with the music you want to play. Gently, with great respect to your instrument, just do it. 🌸

    He wrote love songs for adults. Not the naive, unrealistic, idealistic view of love. The complicated, confused view of love.

  88. Biplab Roy

    nice song!

  89. Sandra D

    when i was young i'd play this song and it made me so sad, like so uncomfortable. Like someone who i loved was saying that to me and was going to walk out. but i would just play it anyways, like some sort of feeling of being bound to the reality of it, and then just be in this heavy somber feeling afterwards. And then one day I could not play it anymore, and then for years I could not listen to it, remembering those feelings, not even a part of it, not even a second of it.
    And this is the first time i have played it since then. It is a nice song. I saved it. I may just play it again tomorrow.

    Matt Hirn

    Isn't it amazing that Cohen can paint with words something so strong that you felt emotional discomfort. His resignation that things change is unsettling knowing that they have not lost their love for one another, but there appears to be this hurt that has cost them their intimacy. It feels tragic that he is walking away. Thanks for sharing your feelings. I think that with this song Cohen has successfully resonated within others the sorrow of the end of we when one chooses goodbye.

    Hey, That's no Way to Say Goodbye
    Leonard Cohen
    I loved you in the morning, our kisses deep and warm
    Your hair upon the pillow like a sleepy golden storm
    Yes, many loved before us, I know that we are not new
    In city and in forest they smiled like me and you
    But now it's come to distances and both of us must try
    Your eyes are soft with sorrow
    Hey, that's no way to say goodbye
    I'm not looking for another as I wander in my time
    Walk me to the corner, our steps will always rhyme
    You know my love goes with you as your love stays with me
    It's just the way it changes, like the shoreline and the sea
    But let's not talk of love or chains and things we can't untie
    Your eyes are soft with sorrow
    Hey, that's no way to say goodbye
    I loved you in the morning, our kisses deep and warm
    Your hair upon the pillow like a sleepy golden storm
    Yes, many loved before us, I know that we are not new
    In city and in forest they smiled like me and you
    But let's not talk of love or chains and things we can't untie
    Your eyes are soft with sorrow
    Hey, that's no way to say goodbye
