Leonard Cohen - Lover Lover Lover

I asked my father
I said, "father change my name"
The one I'm using now, it's covered up
With fear and filth and cowardice and shame

Yes and lover, lover, lover, lover, lover, lover, lover
Come back to me
Yes and lover, lover, lover, lover, lover, lover, lover
Come back to me

He said, "I locked you in this body
I meant it as a kind of trial
You can use it for a weapon
Or to make some woman smile, yeah"

Yes and lover, lover, lover, lover, lover, lover, lover
Come back to me
Yes and lover, lover, lover, lover, lover, lover, lover
Come back to me

"Then let me start again," I cried
"Please let me start again
I want a face that's fair this time
I want a spirit that is calm"

Yes and lover, lover, lover, lover, lover, lover, lover
Come back to me
Yes and lover, lover, lover, lover, lover, lover, lover
Come back to me

"I never never turned aside," he said
"I never walked away
It was you who built the temple
It was you who covered up my face"

Yes and lover, lover, lover, lover, lover, lover, lover
Come back to me
Yes and lover, lover, lover, lover, lover, lover, lover
Come back to me

And may the spirit of this song
May it rise up pure and free
May it be a shield for you
A shield against the enemy

Yes and lover, lover, lover, lover, lover, lover, lover
Come back to me
Yes and lover, lover, lover, lover, lover, lover, lover
Come back to me

Yes and lover, lover, lover, lover, lover, lover, lover
Come back to me
Yes and lover, lover, lover, lover, lover, lover, lover
Come back to me
