LEONARD COHEN


Love Itself Lyrics

The light came through the window
Straight from the sun above
And so inside my little room
There plunged the rays of love

In streams of light I clearly saw
The dust you seldom see
Out of which the nameless makes
A name for one like me

I'll try to say a little more
Love went on and on
Until it reached an open door –
Then love itself
Love itself was gone

All busy in the sunlight
The flecks did float and dance
And I was tumbled up with them
In formless circumstance

I'll try to say a little more
Love went on and on
Until it reached an open door –
Then love itself
Love itself was gone

Then I came back from where I'd been
My room, it looked the same –
But there was nothing left between
The nameless and the name
(Nameless and the name)

All busy in the sunlight
The flecks did float and dance
And I was tumbled up with them
In formless circumstance

I'll try to say a little more
Love went on and on
Until it reached an open door –
Then love itself
Love itself was gone

Love itself
Love itself was gone
