Leonard CohenBlessed Is The Memory

I remember the promise That you made in the barn When the kittens were born And you could not keep warm So you moved away the mountain That the sun rose behind And you said yourself a prayer And laid down with the blind But you lost them in your freedom And you need him now, you're wild Blessed is the memory Of everybody's child And the vow of compassion That you swore through your teeth When the war began to end And the photographs weep Well, nobody blames you As the train pulls away With its cargo of snow For these German paper-weights But you lost them in your freedom And you need him now, you're wild Blessed is the memory Of everybody's child Well, its five in the morning There's no one home Except for your wife And your child on the phone Somebody's got to listen To a promise or two Oh, this room is far too small For a pilgrim like you But you lost them in your freedom And you need him now, you're wild Blessed is the memory Of everybody's child So, now that you've decided To follow the sun Like a shadow of birds Or a King on the run Oh, your chains are too dark For the seas you must swim You're smiling at the seaweed But your smile is too grim But you lost them in your freedom And you need him now, you're wild Blessed is the memory Of everybody's child Blessed is the memory Of everybody's child Blessed is the memory Of everybody's child
