Leonard Cohen – You Have Loved Enough lyrics
I said I'd be your lover
You laughed at what I said
I lost my job forever
I was counted with the dead

I swept the marble chambers
But you sent me down below
You kept me from believing
Until you let me know:

That I am not the one who loves -
It's love that seizes me
When hatred with his package comes
You forbid delivery

And when the hunger for your touch
Rises from the hunger
You whisper, "You have loved enough
Now let me be the Lover. "

And when the hunger for your touch
Rises from the hunger
You whisper, "You have loved enough
Now let me be the lover"

I swept the marble chambers
But you sent me down below
You kept me from believing
Until you let me know:

That I am not the one who loves -
It's love that chooses me
When hatred with his package comes
You forbid delivery

And when the hunger for your touch
Rises from the hunger
You whisper, "You have loved enough
Now let me be the lover"

And when the hunger for your touch
Rises from the hunger
You whisper, "You have loved enough
Now let me be the lover"

And when the hunger for your touch
Rises from the hunger
