Sisters Of Mercy Lyrics

Oh, the Sisters of Mercy, they are not departed or gone

They were waiting for me when I thought, I just cannot go on

And they brought me their comfort and later they brought me this song

Yes I hope you run into them, you who've been traveling so long

Yeah, you who must leave everything that you cannot control

It begins with your family, but soon it comes 'round to your soul

Well I've been where you're hanging and I think I can see how you're pinned

Yeah, when you're not feeling holy, your loneliness tells that you've sinned

They lay down beside me, I made my confession to them

They touched both my eyes, I touched the dew on their hem

If your life is a leaf that the seasons tear off and condemn

They will bind you with love that is graceful and green as a stem

When I left they were sleeping, I hope you run into them soon

Don't turn on the lights, you can read their address by the moon

And you won't make me jealous if I hear that they sweetened your night

We weren't lovers like that and besides it would still be all right

Sisters Of Mercy Lyrics From The Musical Leonard Cohen - Live in London
