Leonard Cohen

"I Didn’t Know"

I knew that I was weak
I knew that you were strong
I did not dare to kneel
Where I did not belong

And if I meant to touch
Your beauty with my hand
Then come the boils and blood
Which I would understand

You tore your knees apart
The loneliness revealed
That drew this unborn heart
From chains that would not yield

But weakened by your exercise
You fell against my soul
The stricken soul the mind denies
Until you make it whole

So I can love your beauty now
Though seeming from afar
Until my neutral world allow
How intimate you are

Sometimes it gets so lonely
I don't know what to do
I'd trade my stash of boredom
For a little hit of you

I didn't know
I didn't know
I didn't know
How much you needed me
