Leonard CohenLover Lover Lover

I asked my father I said, "Father change my name" The one I'm using now it's covered up With fear and filth and cowardice and shame [Chorus: x2] Yes and lover, lover, lover Lover, lover, lover, lover Come back to me He said, "I locked you in this body I meant it as a kind of trial You can use it for a weapon Or to make some woman smile" [Chorus: x2] "Then let me start again," I cried "Please let me start again I want a face that's fair this time I want a spirit that is calm" [Chorus: x2] "I never, never turned aside," he said "I never walked away It was you who built the temple it was you who covered up my face" [Chorus: x2] And may the spirit of this song May it rise up pure and free May it be a shield for you A shield against the enemy [Chorus: x2]
