Sisters of Mercy (Leonard Cohen)
All the sisters of mercy they are not departed or gone,
They were waiting for me when I thought that I just can't go on,
And they brought me their comfort and later they brought me their song,
Oh, I hope you run into them, you, who've been traveling so long.
Yes, you, who must leave everything that you cannot control,
It begins with your family, but soon it comes round to your soul,
Well, I've been where you're hanging and I think I can see how you've pinned,
When you're not feeling holy, you're loneliness says that you've sinned.
They laid down beside me, I made my confession to them,
They touched both my eyes and I touched they dew on their hem,
Well, your life is a leaf that the seasons tear off and condem,
They will bind you with love that is graceful and green as a stem.
When I left they were sleeping, I hope you run into them soon,
Don't turn on the light, you can read their adress by the moon,
And you won't make me jealous, if I hear that they sweetened your night,
We weren't lovers like that and beside, it would still be allright,
We weren't lovers like that and beside, it would still be allright.
