THE SISTERS OF MERCY Leonard Cohen O 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 gave me their comfort, and later they gave me their song Oh I hope you run into them, you who've been traveling so long Yes you who must lose everything that you cannot control It begins with your family, but soon it comes round 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 They lay 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 light, you can read their address by the moon And it won't make me jealous if I learn that they've sweetened your night We weren't lovers like that, and besides it would still be alright We weren't lovers like that, and besides it would still be alright
