Song written in memory of Leonard Cohen


And I heard your gave
Your flowers away
To the ones who are still mourning

And I heard your voice
Speaking soft and tender
But it also shared a warning

And I need some crying
Maybe trial
May your memory be a blessing
After a while
And I don't blame you
For your absent cry
I know I'll forgive you
By and by

Cause you taught me to be holy
That the only mortal sin
Is believing those of others
Are within

And I wait all night
For your step by the door
But on comes the morning
Still once more

And I played your songs
I sound thin
When I would sing
My voice sounded wrong
So I wait for you now
Like I did then
To hear you sing
Once Again
