Leonard Cohen – A Thousand Kisses Deep (spoken word) Lyrics




You came to me this morning
And you handled me like meat
You’d have to be a man to know
How good that feels, how sweet
My mirrored twin, my next of kin
I’d know you in my sleep
And who but you would take me in
A thousand kisses deep

I loved you when you opened like a
Lily to the heat
You see I’m just another snowman
Standing in the rain and sleet
Who loved you with his frozen love
His second hand physique
With all he is, and all he was
A thousand kisses deep

I know you had to lie to me
I know you had to cheat
To pose all hot and hide behind
The veils of sheer deceit
Our perfect porn aristocrat
So elegant and cheap
I’m old but I’m still into that
A thousand kisses deep

I’m good at love, I’m good at hate
It’s in between I freeze
Been working out, but its too late
It’s been too late for years
But you look good, you really do
The pride of Boogie Street
Somebody must have died for you
A thousand kisses deep

The autumn moved across your skin
Got something in my eye
A light that doesn’t need to live
And doesn’t need to die
A riddle in the book of love
Obscure and obsolete
Until witnessed here in time and blood
A thousand kisses deep

And I’m still working with the wine
Still dancing cheek to cheek
The band is playing Auld Lang Syne
But the heart will not retreat
I ran with Diz and Dante
I never had their sweep
But once or twice they let me play
A thousand kisses deep

I loved you when you opened
Like a lily to the heat
You see I’m just another snowman
Standing in the rain and sleet
But you don’t need to hear me now
And every word I speak
It counts against me anyhow
A thousand kisses deep




Bon Jovi – New Year’s Day




The midnight bells are ringing
A ship is setting sail
A newborn baby’s crying
As lovers say farewell

I’m singing hallelujah
Amen, the angels say
Let’s hope tomorrow finds us
It’s New Year’s Day

Let’s toast to new beginnings okay
Raise up a glass and say
For all of our tomorrows
And what was yesterday come on

I’m singing carpe diem
I’m saying seize the day
Come on, let’s live forever
It’s New Year’s Day

Where does the time go
Just watch the wind blow
Sha la la la
It’s New Year’s Day
Green does the grass grow
Outside my window
Sha la la la
It’s New Year’s Day

This message in a bottle
The wisdom of the wine
It’s just a rainy Monday
This isn’t Auld Lang Syne

I’m singing hallelujah
Amen, the angels say
Let’s hope tomorrow finds us
It’s New Year’s Day


Bon Jovi – New Year’s Day (Live From The London Palladium/2016) (This House Is Not For Sale Album)


The midnight bells are ringing
A ship is setting sail
A newborn baby’s crying
As lovers say farewell

I’m singing hallelujah
Amen, the angels say
Let’s hope tomorrow finds us
It’s New Year’s Day

Let’s toast to new beginnings okay
Raise up a glass and say
For all of our tomorrows
And what was yesterday come on

I’m singing carpe diem
I’m saying seize the day
Come on, let’s live forever
It’s New Year’s Day

Where does the time go
Just watch the wind blow
Sha la la la
It’s New Year’s Day
Green does the grass grow
Outside my window
Sha la la la
It’s New Year’s Day

This message in a bottle
The wisdom of the wine
It’s just a rainy Monday
This isn’t Auld Lang Syne

I’m singing hallelujah
Amen, the angels say
Let’s hope tomorrow finds us
It’s New Year’s Day


Beach Boys – Surf’s Up lyrics


A diamond necklace played the pawn
Hand in hand some drummed along, oh
To a handsome man and baton
(Bygone, bygone)
A blind class aristocracy
Back through the opera glass you see
The pit and the pendulum drawn
(Bygone, bygone)
Columnated ruins domino

Canvass the town and brush the backdrop
Are you sleeping?

Hung velvet overtaken me
Dim chandelier awaken me
To a song dissolved in the dawn
(Bygone, bygone)
The music hall a costly bow
The music all is lost for now
To a muted trumpeter swan
(Bygone, bygone)
Columnated ruins domino

Canvass the town and brush the backdrop
Are you sleeping, Brother John?

Dove nested towers the hour was
Strike the street quicksilver moon
Carriage across the fog
Two-Step to lamp lights cellar tune
The laughs come hard in Auld Lang Syne

The glass was raised, the fired rose
The fullness of the wine, the dim last toasting
While at port, adieu or die

A choke of grief heart hardened, I
Beyond belief, a broken man too tough to cry

Surf’s up, mm-mm, mm-mm, mm-mm
Aboard a tidal wave
Come about hard and join
The young and often spring you gave
I heard the word
Wonderful thing
A children’s song

(Child, child, child, child, child)
A child is the father of the man
(Child, child, child, child, child)
A child is the father of the man
A children’s song
Have you listened as they played?
Their song is love
And the children know the way
That’s why the child is the father to the man
(Child, child, child, child, child)
(Child, child, child, child, child)
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na
(Child, child, child, child, child)
That’s why the child is the father to the man
(Child, child, child, child, child)
