So Long, Marianne Lyrics

Won't you come over to the window, my little darling?

I'd like to try to read your palm

You know I used to think I was some kind of gypsy boy

Before I let you take me home

So long, Marianne, it's time that we began

To laugh and cry and cry

And laugh about it all again

Well, you know that I love to live with you

But you make me forget so very much

I forget to pray for the angels

And then the angels forget to pray for us

So long, Marianne, it's time that we began

To laugh and cry and cry

And laugh about it all again

Now we met when was it? We were almost young

We stand by the green lilac park

You held on to me like I was a crucifix

As we went kneeling through the dark

So long, Marianne, it's time that we began

To laugh and cry and cry

And laugh about it all again

Oh so long, Marianne, it's time that we began

To laugh and cry and cry

And laugh about it all again

For now, I need your hidden love

I'm cold as a new razor blade

You left when I told you I was curious

Did I ever say that I was brave?

So long, Marianne, it's time that we began

To laugh and cry, cry

And laugh about it all again

Oh, you are really such a pretty woman

I see you've gone and changed your names again

And just when I climbed this whole mountainside

To wash my eyelids in the rain

So long, Marianne, it's time that we began

To laugh and cry and cry

And laugh about it all again

So long, Marianne, it's time that we began

To laugh and cry, cry

Laugh about it all again

So Long, Marianne Lyrics From The Musical Leonard Cohen - Live in London
