Love Itself Lyrics - Leonard Cohen



Review The Song (1)


The light came through the window,
Straight from the sun above,
And so inside my little room
There plunged the rays of Love.

In streams of light I clearly saw
The dust you seldom see,
Out of which the Nameless makes
A Name for one like me.

I'll try to say a little more:
Love went on and on
Until it reached an open door –
Then Love Itself
Love Itself was gone.

All busy in the sunlight
The flecks did float and dance,
And I was tumbled up with them
In formless circumstance.

I'll try to say a little more:
Love went on and on
Until it reached an open door –
Then Love Itself
Love Itself was gone.

Then I came back from where I'd been.
My room, it looked the same –
But there was nothing left between
The Nameless and the Name.

All busy in the sunlight
The flecks did float and dance,
And I was tumbled up with them
In formless circumstance.

I'll try to say a little more:
Love went on and on
Until it reached an open door –
Then Love itself,
Love Itself was gone.
Love Itself was gone.

I'm a late convert to Leonard Cohen - I always had a cynical view that his music was "slit your wrist " music- until I saw him live at the O2 in Dublin in July. What a superb performance! I became a total convert and have been playing his music ever since. He has so many wonderful songs - a poet who sings really- but Love Itself brings tears to my eyes- what a song- if you have a soul this song will open it- fantastic!
