Leonard Cohen Crazy to Love You Lyrics

<b>Crazy To Love You</b> by <i>Leonard Cohen</i>
I had to go crazy to love you (
Had to go down to the pit (
Had to do time in the tower (
Beggin' my crazy to quit
(I had to go crazy to love you (
You who were never the one (
Whom I chased through the (souvenir heartache (
Her braids and her blouse all undone
(Sometimes I'd head for the highway
(I'm old and the mirrors don't lie (
But crazy has places to hide in (
That are deeper than any goodbye
(Had to go crazy to love you (
Had to let everything fall

(Had to be people I hated (
Had to be no one at all
I'm tired of choosing desire
(I've been saved by a blessed fatigue (
The gates of commitment unwired
(And nobody trying to leave
Sometimes I'd head for the highway
(I'm old and the mirrors don't lie (
But crazy has places to hide in
That are deeper than any goodbye
(I had to go crazy to love you (
You who were never the one (
Whom I chased through the (souvenir heartache (
Her braids and her blouse all undone
