You know who I am
(Music and Lyrics by Leonard Cohen)
(Esther Ofarim, 1968)

Mein Weg zu mir

I cannot follow you, my love,
you cannot follow me.
I'm the distance you put between
all of the moments that we will be.

You know who I am,
you've stared at the sun,
well I am the one who loves
changing from nothing to one.

Sometimes you need me naked,
sometimes you need me wild,
You need me to carry our children in
and you need me to kill a child.

You know who I am...

If I should ever track you down
You will surrender there
and you'll leave with me one broken man
whom you will teach me to repair.

You know who I am...

I cannot follow you, my love,
you cannot follow me.
I'm  the distance you put between
all of the moments that we will be.

You know who I am...
