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 Ёc
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 Ёc
Then love itself
Love itself was gone.

Then I came back from where I'd been.
My room, it looked the same Ёc
But there was nothing left between
The 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 Ёc
Then love itself,
Love itself was gone.
Love itself was gone.
