I Tried to Leave You

©Leonard Cohen, released on New Skin for the Old Ceremony (1974)

.

I tried to leave you, I don't deny

I closed the book on us, at least a hundred times.

I'd wake up every morning by your side.

.

The years go by, you lose your pride.

The baby's crying, so you do not go outside,

and all your work it's right before your eyes.

.

Goodnight, my darling, I hope you're satisfied,

the bed is kind of narrow, but my arms are open wide.

And here's a man still working for your smile.
