A Thousand Kisses Deep Lyrics

A Thousand Kisses Deep

 

Leonard Cohen

 

Lyric By : Mike0532

 

The ponies run' the girls are young'

The odds are there to beat.

You win a while' and then it's done –

Your little winning streak.

And summoned now to deal

With your invincible defeat'

You live your life as if it's real'

A Thousand Kisses Deep.

 

I'm turning tricks' I'm getting fixed'

I'm back on Boogie Street.

You lose your grip' and then you slip

Into the Masterpiece.

And maybe I had miles to drive'

And promises to keep:

You ditch it all to stay alive'

A Thousand Kisses Deep.

Music

 

And sometimes when the night is slow'

The wretched and the meek'

We gather up our hearts and go'

A Thousand Kisses Deep.

 

Confined to sex' we pressed against

The limits of the sea:

I saw there were no oceans left

For scavengers like me.

I made it to the forward deck.

I blessed our remnant fleet –

And then consented to be wrecked'

A Thousand Kisses Deep.

 

I'm turning tricks' I'm getting fixed'

I'm back on Boogie Street.

I guess they won't exchange the gifts

That you were meant to keep.

And quiet is the thought of you'

The file on you complete'

Except what we forgot to do'

A Thousand Kisses Deep.

 

Music

 

And sometimes when the night is slow'

The wretched and the meek'

We gather up our hearts and go'

A Thousand Kisses Deep.

 

The ponies run' the girls are young'

The odds are there to beat...

 

You win a while' and then it's done –

Your little winning streak.

And summoned now to deal

With your invincible defeat'

You live your life as if it's real'

A Thousand Kisses Deep.
