Winter Lady

©Leonard Cohen, released on Songs of Leonard Cohen (1967)

.

Trav'ling lady, stay awhile

until the night is over.

I'm just a station on your way,

I know I'm not your lover.

.

Well I lived with a child of snow

when I was a soldier,

and I fought every man for her

until the nights grew colder.

.

She used to wear her hair like you

except when she was sleeping,

and then she'd weave it on a loom

of smoke and gold and breathing.

.

And why are you so quiet now

standing there in the doorway?

You chose your journey long before

you came upon this highway.

.

Trav'ling lady stay awhile

until the night is over.

I'm just a station on your way,

I know I'm not your lover.
