Tower Of Song Lyrics

Tower of Song (《莱奥纳德·科恩:我是你的男人》纪录片插曲) - Martha Wainwright

My friends are gone

And my hair is grey

I ache in the places

Where I used to play

And I'm crazy for love

But I'm not coming on

 

I'm just paying my rent every day

In the Tower of Song

 

I said to Hank Williams

How lonely does it get

Hank Williams hasn't answered me yet

But I hear him coughing

 

All night long

 

A hundred floors above me

 

In the Tower of Song

 

And I was born like this

I had no choice

I was born with the gift

Of a golden voice

And twenty-seven angels

From the Great Beyond

 

All they tied me to

This table right here

In the Tower of Song

 

So you can stick your little pins

In that voodoo doll

 

I'm very sorry baby

Doesn't look like me at all

I'm standing by the window

Where the light is strong

 

Ah they don't let a woman kill you

Not in the Tower of Song

 

Now you can say

That I've grown bitter

But of this you may be sure

The rich have got their channels

In the bedrooms of the poor

And there's a mighty

Judgement coming

But I may be wrong

 

You see you hear

These funny voices

 

In the Tower of Song

 

I can see you

Standing on the other side

I don't know

How the river got so wide

I loved you baby

Way back when

 

And all the bridges are burning

That we might have crossed

But I feel so close to everything

That we lost

We'll never never have to

Lose it again

 

Now I bid you farewell

I don't know

When I'll be back

There moving us tomorrow

To that tower down the track

But you'll be hearing

From me baby

Long after I'm gone

 

I'll be speaking to you sweetly

From a window in the Tower of Song

 

Yeah my friends are gone

And my hair is grey

I ache in the places

Where I used to play

And I'm crazy for love

But I'm not coming on

 

I'm just paying my rent every day

In the Tower of Song

 

I'm just paying my rent every day

In the Tower of Song

 

I'm just paying my rent every day

In the Tower of Song
