Leonard Cohen

Light as the Breeze

She stands before you naked You can see it, you can taste it And she comes to you light as the breeze Now you can drink it or you can nurse it It don't matter how you worship As long as you're Down on your knees So I knelt there at the delta At the alpha and the omega At the cradle of the river and the seas And like a blessing come from heaven For something like a second I was healed and my heart Was at ease Ah baby I waited So long for your kiss For something to happen Oh something like this And you're weak and you're harmless And you're sleeping in your harness And the wind going wild In the trees And it ain't exactly prison But you'll never be forgiven For whatever you've done With the keys Ah baby I waited So long for your kiss For something to happen Oh something like this It's dark now and it's snowing O my love I must be going The river has started to freeze And I'm sick of pretending I'm broken from bending I've lived too long on my knees Then she dances so graceful And your heart's hard and hateful And she's naked But that's just a tease And you turn in disgust From your hatred and from your love And she comes to you Light as the breeze Ah baby I waited So long for your kiss For something to happen Oh something like this Something like this There's blood on every bracelet You can see it, you can taste it And it's "Please, baby Please baby please" And she says, "Drink deeply, pilgrim But don't forget there's still a woman Beneath this Resplendent chemise" So I knelt there at the delta At the alpha and the omega I knelt there like one who believes And the blessings come from heaven And for something like a second I'm cured and my heart Is at ease
