LEONARD COHEN


Store Room Lyrics

Store Room

It’s not the wind that keeps you up,
It’s not the snow
It’s not the moon
coming like a headlight
through your window
It’s not the thumbnail of a screen
That scrapes away your dream

It's just this man,
Taking what he needs,
From the store room,

It’s not the news of burning towns
That ruins your mind
like a spoon you turn and you turn
But it won’t unwind
Though these wars you did not start
They don’t tear your sleep apart

It's just a man,
Taking what he needs,
From the store room.

And now this woman by your side
Well, she’s is asleep
And there's nothing you can give her,
and there's nothing you want to keep
You don't even try to prove that the noise is
neighbours making love.

It's just a man,
Taking what he needs,
From the store room.

Well, go to sleep and change the locks
When you wake up
Share your toast maybe
spill some coffee from your cup
Oh there’s nothing left to choose
And there is so much more to lose.

There’s this man,
Taking what he needs,
From the store room.

It’s not the wind that keeps you up,
It’s not the snow
It’s not the moon
coming like a headlight
through your window
It’s not the thumbnail of a screen
That scrapes away your dream

It's just a man,
Taking what he needs,
From the store room.

It’s not the news of burning towns
That ruins your mind
like a spoon you turn and you turn
But won’t unwind
No these wars you did not start
They don’t tear your sleep apart

It's just a man,
Taking what he needs,
From the store room.

And now the woman by your side
Well, she’s awake
But there's nothing you can give her,
and there's nothing you want to take
You don't even try to prove that the noise is
neighbours making love.

It's just a man,
Taking what he needs,
From the store room.

Oh go to sleep and change the locks
When you wake up
Share your toast maybe
spill a little coffee from your cup
He’s got nothing left to choose
And you’ve got so much more to lose.

It's just a man,
Taking what he needs,
From the store room.
