Boogie Street Lyrics

O Crown of Light, O Darkened One

I never thought we'd meet

You kiss my lips and then it's done

I'm back on Boogie Street

A sip of wine, a cigarette and then it's time to go

I tidied up the kitchenette, I tuned the old banjo

I'm wanted at the traffic-jam, they're saving me a seat

I'm what I am, and what I am is back on Boogie Street

And O my love, I still recall the pleasures that we knew

The rivers and the waterfall, wherein I bathed with you

Bewildered by your beauty there, I'd kneel to dry your feet

By such instructions you prepare a man for Boogie Street

O Crown of Light, O Darkened One

I never thought we'd meet

You kiss my lips and then it's done

And I'm back, back on Boogie Street

So come, my friends, be not afraid, we are so lightly here

It is in love that we are made, in love we disappear

Though all the maps of blood and flesh are posted on the door

There's no one who has told us yet what Boogie Street is for

O Crown of Light, O Darkened One

I never thought we'd meet

You kiss my lips, and then it's done

And I'm back, back on Boogie Street

A sip of wine, a cigarette and then it's time to go

I tidied up the kitchenette, I tuned the old banjo

I'm wanted at the traffic-jam, they're saving me a seat

I'm what I am, and what I am is back on Boogie Street

Boogie Street Lyrics From The Musical Leonard Cohen - Live in London
