You Know Who I Am

©Leonard Cohen, released on Songs from a Room (1969)

.

I cannot follow you, my love,

you cannot follow me.

I am the distance you put between

all of the moments that we will be.

.

You know who I am,

you've stared at the sun,

well I am the one who loves

changing from nothing to one.

.

Sometimes I need you naked,

sometimes I need you wild,

I need you to carry my children in

and I need you to kill a child.

.

You know who I am ...

.

If you should ever track me down

I will surrender there

and I will leave with you one broken man

whom I will teach you to repair.

.

You know who I am ...

.

I cannot follow you, my love,

you cannot follow me.

I am the distance you put between

all of the moments that we will be.

.

You know who I am ...
