On That Day

©Leonard Cohen and Anjani Thomas, released on Dear Heather (2004)

.

Some people say

It's what we deserve

For sins against g-d

For crimes in the world

I wouldn't know

I'm just holding the fort

Since that day

They wounded New York

Some people say

They hate us of old

Our women unveiled

Our slaves and our gold

I wouldn't know

I'm just holding the fort

But answer me this

I won't take you to court

Did you go crazy

Or did you report

On that day

On that day

They wounded New York
