Bird On A Wire
Leonard Cohen


Like a bird on the wire
Like a drunk in some old midnight choir
I have tried in my way to be free

Like a worm on a hook
Like a monk bending over the book
It was a shape, the shape of our love twisted me

If I, if I have been unkind
I hope you can just let it all go right on by
If I, if I have been untrue
It's just that I thought a lover had to be some kind of liar too

(break als couplet)

If I, if I have been unkind
I hope you can just, ah, let it all go right on by
If I, if I have been untrue
I hope that you know by now, my love, it was never to you

Like a little baby, stillborn
Like a beast with his horn
I have torn everyone who reached out for me

But I swear, I swear by this song
I swear by all that I have done wrong
I will make it all up to thee

saw a beggar who was standing there on his wooden crutch
He sais to me, "You must not ask for so much."
A pretty woman leaning in her darkened door
She cries out to me "hey why not ask for just a little bit more"

Like a bird on the wire
Like a drunk in some old midnight choir
I have tried in my way to be free-ee
