Here It Is

©Leonard Cohen and Sharon Robinson, released on Ten New Songs (2001)

.

Here is your crown

And your seal and rings;

And here is your love

For all things.

.

Here is your cart,

And your cardboard and piss;

And here is your love

For all of this.

.

May everyone live,

And may everyone die.

Hello, my love,

And my love, Goodbye.

.

Here is your wine,

And your drunken fall;

And here is your love.

Your love for it all.

.

Here is your sickness.

Your bed and your pan;

And here is your love

For the woman, the man.

.

May everyone live,

And may everyone die.

Hello, my love,

And my love, Goodbye.

.

And here is the night,

The night has begun;

And here is your death

In the heart of your son.

.

And here is the dawn,

(Until death do us part);

And here is your death,

In your daughter's heart.

.

May everyone live,

And may everyone die.

Hello, my love,

And my love, Goodbye.

.

And here you are hurried,

And here you are gone;

And here is the love,

That it's all built upon.

.

Here is your cross,

Your nails and your hill;

And here is your love,

That lists where it will.

.

May everyone live,

And may everyone die.

Hello, my love,

And my love, Goodbye.
