Song For Leonard Cohen

I introduced her to you
And you just took her away
She said that now she knew you
Well she just couldn’t stay

Now with a shitty ditty
A writer just like me
Can try and speak to a man
Who knows such sorrow and beauty

A man who needs saving from
The solitude of a broken heart
Who knows more than just the surface of love
That we chart

So Leonard Cohen
Won’t you give me back my girl
She said she’s goin’
Half way round the world
To search for you in the Chelsea Hotel
To look on Mount Baldy as well
So Leonard Cohen send back my girl

She left me with a thin green candle
And a black eye
We both know that’s no way
To say goodbye

All I’m left with is
Silence and memories
Cos she stole my heart
And then she stole my CDs

And all the radio plays
Are those hollow little love songs
Where all they seem to say
Is nothing’s ever wrong

So send me back those albums of you
Cos it’s the least you could do
Cos I could live without a girl
But I just could not live without you

So Leonard Cohen
Won’t you give me back my girl
She said she’s goin’
Half way round the world
To search for you in the Chelsea Hotel
To look on Mount Baldy as well
So Leonard Cohen send back my girl
She said she’s goin’
Half way round the world
To search for you in the Chelsea Hotel
Might look for Bob Dylan as well
So Leonard Cohen send back my girl
Leonard Cohen send back my girl
