I Left a Woman Waiting

©Leonard Cohen, released on Death of a Ladies' Man (1977)

.

I left a woman waiting

I met her sometime later

She said, I see your eyes are dead

What happened to you, lover?

What happened to you, my lover?

What happened to you, lover?

What happened to you?

.

And since she spoke the truth to me

I tried to answer truthfully

Whatever happened to my eyes

Happened to your beauty

Happened to your beauty

What happened to your beauty

Happened to me

.

We took ourselves to someone's bed

And there we fell together

Quick as dogs and truly dead were we

And free as running water

Free as running water

Free as running water

Free as you and me

The way it's got to be

The way it's got to be, lover
