So Long, Marianne

Leonard Cohen

SO LONG, MARIANNE LYRICS

[Verse 1]
Come over to the window, my little darling
I’d like to try to read your palm
I used to think I was some kind of Gypsy boy
Before I let you take me home

[Chorus]
Now so long, Marianne, it’s time that we began
To laugh and cry and cry and laugh about it all again

[Verse 2]
Well you know that I love to live with you
But you make me forget so very much

I forget to pray for the angels
And then the angels forget to pray for us

[Chorus]
Now so long, Marianne, it’s time that we began
To laugh and cry and cry and laugh about it all again

[Verse 3]
We met when we were almost young
Deep in the green lilac park
You held on to me like I was a crucifix
As we went kneeling through the dark

[Chorus]
Oh so long, Marianne, it’s time that we began
To laugh and cry and cry and laugh about it all again

[Verse 4]
Your letters they all say that you’re beside me now
Then why do I feel alone?
I’m standing on a ledge and your fine spider web
Is fastening my ankle to a stone

[Chorus]
Now so long, Marianne, it’s time that we began
To laugh and cry and cry and laugh about it all again

[Verse 5]
For now I need your hidden love
I’m cold as a new razor blade
You left when I told you I was curious
I never said that I was brave

[Chorus]
Oh so long, Marianne, it’s time that we began
To laugh and cry and cry and laugh about it all again

[Verse 6]
Oh, you are really such a pretty one
I see you’ve gone and changed your name again
And just when I climbed this whole mountainside
To wash my eyelids in the rain

[Chorus]
Oh so long, Marianne, it’s time that we began
To laugh and cry and cry and laugh about it all again
