leonard cohen – different sides lyrics

different sides

we find ourselves on different sides
of a line n*body drew
though it all may be one in the higher eye
down here where we live it is two

i to my side call the meek and the mild
you to your side call the word
by virtue of suffering i claim to have won
you claim to have never been heard

both of us say there are laws to obey
but frankly i don’t like your tone
you want to change the way i make love
i want to leave it alone

the pull of the moon, the thrust of the sun
and thus the ocean is crossed
the waters are blessed while a shadowy guest
kindles a light for the lost

both of us say there are laws to obey
but frankly i don’t like your tone
you want to change the way i make love
i want to leave it alone

down in the valley the famine goes on
the famine up on the hill
i say that you shouldn’t, you couldn’t, you can’t
you say that you must and you will

both of us say there are laws to obey
but frankly i don’t like your tone
you want to change the way i make love
i want to leave it alone

you want to live where the suffering is
i want to get out of town
c’mon baby give me a kiss
stop writing everything down

both of us say there are laws to obey
yeah, but frankly i don’t like your tone
you want to change the way i make love
i want to leave it alone

both of us say there are laws to obey
but frankly i don’t like your tone
you want to change the way i make love
i want to leave it alone
