(Leonard Cohen)

Maybe I'm still hurting
I can't turn the other cheek
But you know that I still love you ;
It's just that I can't speak.
I looked for you in everyone
And they called me on that too ;
I lived alone but I was only
Coming bak to you

They're shutting down the factory now
Just when all the bills are due ;
And the fields they're under lock and key
Through the rain and the sun come through.
And springtime starts but then it stops
In the name of something new ;
And all my senses rise against this
Coming back to you

They're handing down my sentence now ,
And I know what I must do
Another mile of silence while I'm
Coming back to you

There are many in your life
And many still to be.
Since you are a shining light
There's many that you'll see.
But I have to deal with envy
When you choose the precious few
Who've left their pride on the other side of
Coming back to you.

Even in your arms I know
I'll never get it right ;
Even when you bend
To give me comfort in the night.
I've got to have your word on this
Or none of it is true ,
And all I've said was just instead of
Coming back to you
