LEONARD COHEN


Dance Me To The End Of Love Lyrics

Dance me to your beauty with a burning violin
Dance me through the panic 'til I'm gathered safely in
Lift me like an olive branch and be my homeward dove
Dance me to the end of love, dance me to the end of love

Oh let me see your beauty when the witnesses are gone
Let me feel you moving like they do in Babylon
Show me slowly what I only know the limits of
Oh dance me to the end of love, dance me to the end of love

Dance me to the wedding now, dance me on and on
Dance me very tenderly and dance me very long
We're both of us beneath our love, we're both of us above
Dance me to the end of love, dance me to the end of love

Dance me to the children who are asking to be born
Dance me through the curtains that our kisses have outworn
Raise a tent of shelter now, though every thread is torn
Dance me to the end of love

Dance me to your beauty with a burning violin
Dance me through the panic till I'm gathered safely in
Touch me with your naked hand or touch me with your glove
Dance me to the end of love, dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love

I have been following Leonard's work for almost 50 years-people thought I was crazy-but I knew what a special Poet he was and is-this is his crowning jewel-mazeltov Kohanim, baruch ha'Meschiach Yeshua

i first listened to Leonard Cohen when i was 16 yrs old. His music, lyrics blew me away completely.41 yrs later this Great Man is still doing it. Dance Me To The End Of Love is probably his best song

My love and I dance to this song by candlelight - tears of joy pour forth - it is the perfect love song.

When a friend played for me a Leonard Cohen's song, I knew that I've found a perfect poet . That was a shut rigth in the middle of my heart. He is just amazing.

Leornard, Bob Dylan, and Neil Young saved my life. If it weren't for them, life would be a mistake : )
