"Τα πάντα ρή-τος / This history of music and poetry :I’m your man" - No 26

Written by: Leonard Cohen

If you want a driver
Climb inside
Or if you want to take me for a ride
You know you can
I’m your man

Ah, the moons too bright
The chains too tight
The beast wont go to sleep
I’ve been running through these promises to you
That I made and I could not keep
Ah but a man never got a woman back
Not by begging on his knees
Or Id crawl to you baby
And Id fall at your feet
And Id howl at your beauty
Like a dog in heat
And Id claw at your heart
And Id tear at your sheet
Id say please, please
I’m your man

And if you’ve got to sleep
A moment on the road
I will steer for you
And if you want to work the street alone
Ill disappear for you
If you want a father for your child
Or only want to walk with me a while
Across the sand
I’m your man

If you want a lover
Ill do anything you ask me to
And if you want another kind of love
Ill wear a mask for you
