Sisters Of Mercy (vom Album Songs Of Leonard Cohen)

Oh the sisters of mercy,

they are not departed or gone.

They were waiting for me

when I thought that I just can't go on.

And they brought me their comfort

and later they brought me this song.

Oh I hope you run into them,

you who've been travelling so long.

Yes you who must leave

everything that you cannot control.

It begins with your family,

but soon it comes around to your soul.

Well I've been where you're hanging,

I think I can see how you're pinned:

When you're not feeling holy,

your loneliness says that you've sinned.

Well they layed down beside me,

I made my confession to them.

They touched both my eyes

and 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.
