A THOUSAND KISSES DEEP Leonard Cohen The ponies run, the girls are young, The odds are there to beat. You win a while, and then itís done Ė Your little winning streak. And summoned now to deal With your invincible defeat, You live your life as if itís real, A Thousand Kisses Deep. Iím turning tricks, Iím getting fixed, Iím back on Boogie Street. You lose your grip, and then you slip Into the Masterpiece. And maybe I had miles to drive, And promises to keep: You ditch it all to stay alive, A Thousand Kisses Deep. And sometimes when the night is slow, The wretched and the meek, We gather up our hearts and go, A Thousand Kisses Deep. Confined to sex, we pressed against The limits of the sea: I saw there were no oceans left For scavengers like me. I made it to the forward deck I blessed our remnant fleet Ė And then consented to be wrecked, A Thousand Kisses Deep. Iím turning tricks, Iím getting fixed, Iím back on Boogie Street. I guess they wonít exchange the gifts That you were meant to keep. And quiet is the thought of you The file on you complete, Except what we forgot to do, A Thousand Kisses Deep. And sometimes when the night is slow, The wretched and the meek, We gather up our hearts and go, A Thousand Kisses Deep. The ponies run, the girls are young, The odds are there to beatÖ
