Leonard Cohen For Today

Always Lyrics

(Oh friends, .. don’t matter if you’re a man or a woman. If you’re in love
with somebody, these are the words that you got to learn to say. Now
listen carefully. Here it comes…)
I’ll be loving you always
with a love that’s true, always
When the thing you’ve planned
needs my helping hand,

I will understand, always, always
Days may not be fair, always
Yeah but that’s when I’ll be there, always
Not for just an hour,
Not for just a day,

Not for just a year, but always.
I said that I’ll be loving you, always
with a love that’s true, always.
When the thing you’ve planned
needs my helping hand,

I will, I will understand, always, always
(Oh that’s pretty … that’s pretty too … Oh darling)
The days may not be fair, always
Yeah but that’s when I’ll be there, always
Not for just a second, or a minute, or an hour,
Not for just a weekend and a shake down in the shower,
Not for just the summer and the winter going sour,
But always, always, always

(Ok if you don’t want to quit, let’s try it one more time)

I’ll be loving you, always
with a love that’s true, always.
When the thing you’ve planned
needs my helping hand,

I will understand, I will, I will understand, always, always
The days may not be fair, always
(Don’t worry, baby)
That’s when I’ll be there, always
Not for just an hour,
Not for just a day,
Not for just a year, but always.

Poetry is just the evidence of life. If your life is burning well, poetry is just the ash.
Leonard Cohen
