Leonard Cohen

"Bird on a Wire (Live in Paris)"

Comme l'oiseau sur la branche
Comme l'ivrogne dans le choeur de la nuit
J'ai cherche ma liberte

Like a bird on the wire
Like a drunk in some midnight choir
I have tried in my way to be free

Like a worm on a hook
Like a knight bent down on some old fashioned book
It was the shape, the shape of our love, twisted me

If I, if I have been unkind
I hope you can, I hope you can, just let it go by, just let it go by
And if I, if I have been untrue
I just that I thought a lover had to be some kind of liar too

Like a baby, stillborn
Like a beast with his horn
I have torn everyone who reached out for me

But I swear by this song
And by all that I have done wrong
I will make it all up to thee

I saw a beggar leaning on his wooden crutch
He says to me, "Come on now, you must not ask for so much", yeah
And another pretty woman, she was leaning on her darkened door
She cried to me, "Come on now, why don't you ask, why don't ask for just a little more? Just a little more"

Oh like a bird on the wire
Like a drunk in some old midnight choir
I have tried in my way to be free
