LEONARD COHEN


Humbled In Love Lyrics

Do you remember all of those pledges
That we pledged in the passionate night
Ah, they're soiled now, they're torn at the edges
Like moths on a still yellow light

No penance serves to renew them
No massive transfusions of trust
Why not even revenge can undo them
So twisted these vows and so crushed

And you say you've been humbled in love

Cut down in your love
Forced to kneel in the mud next to me
Ah, but why so bitterly turn from the one
Who kneels there as deeply as thee

Children have takes these pledges
They have ferried them out of the past
Oh, beyond all the graves and the hedges
Where love must go hiding at last

And here where there is no description
Oh, here in the moment at hand
No sinner need rise up forgiven
No victim need limp to the stand

And you say you've been humbled in love

And look dear heart, look at the virgin
Look how she welcomes him into her gown
Yes, and mark how the stranger's cold Armour
Dissolves like a star falling down

Why trade this vision for desire
When you may have them both
You will never see a man this naked
I will never hold a woman this close

And you say you've been humbled in love
