you know who i am lyrics – leonard cohen

i cannot follow you, my love
you cannot follow me
i am 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 i need you naked
sometimes i need you wild
i need you to carry my children in
and i need you to kill a child

you know who i am
you’ve stared at the sun
well i am the one who loves
changing from nothing to one

if you should ever track me down
i will surrender there
and i will leave with you one broken man
whom i will teach you to repair

you know who i am
you’ve stared at the sun
well i am the one who loves
changing from nothing to one

i cannot follow you, my love
you cannot follow me
i am 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
