Leonard Cohen – We Told You So lyrics

(Written By Cohen, Performed In "Night Magic")

(Angels) We told you so
We told you dear
You didn't have
To come here

The human life
Is full of quirks
We can't work it out
Nothing works

It's a lemon
This mechanic
Live, love, suffer
Die and panic

It lives, it loves
Suffers and dies
It eats cow's meat
And apple pies

Dumb, dumb, dumb
And full of fear
Anxiety and strife..
This is the human life!

... We have many duties still
Much gold and silver light to spill
On anxious boys and frightened girls like you...
