Leaving Green Sleeves Lyrics

Artist:leonard cohen

Songs Title:leaving green sleeves

Alas my love you did me wrong

To cast me out discourteously

For I have loved you so long

Delighting in your very company

Now if you intend to show me disdain

Dont you know it all the more enraptures me

For even so I still remain your lover in captivity

Green sleeves youre all alone

The leaves have fallen the men have gone

Green sleeves theres no one home

Not even the lady green sleeves

I sang my songs I told my lies

To lie between your matchless thighs

And aint it fine aint it wild

To finally end our exercise

Then I saw you naked in the early dawn

Oh I hoped you would be someone new

I reached for you but you were gone

So lady Im going too

Green sleeves youre all alone

Green sleeves youre all alone

The leaves have fallen the men have all gone home

 

Green sleeves its so easily done

 

Leaving the lady green sleeves
