TAKE THIS LONGING		LEONARD COHEN

   D
 
C			G     C			   G
Many men have loved the bells, you fastened to the rein
    Em		  Am         Em                   D     Em    D
And everyone who wanted you found what they will always want again
 F#m                 Bm               F#m                Bm
Your beauty lost to you yourself just as it was lost to them
    G                         D
Oh take this longing from my tongue
    G                                    D
Whatever useless things these hands have done
 G                             D
Let me see your beauty broken down
F#m              G               D
  Like you would do for one you loved


Your body like a searchlight my poverty revealed
I would like to try your charity until u cry now you must try my greed
And everything depends upon how near you sleep to me
Just take this longing from my tongue
And all the lonely things my hands have done
Let me see your beauty broken down
Like you would do for one you love

You're hungry as an archway, thru which the troops have passed
I stand in ruins behind you, with your winter clothes
      and your broken sandal straps
I love to see you naked over there, 'specially from the back
Ah take this longing from my tongue
And all the lonely things my hands have done
Untie for me your hired blue gown
Like you would do for one you love

You're faithful to the better man, I'm afraid that he left
So let me judge your love affair in this very room
       where I have sentenced mine to death
I'll even wear these old laurel leaves, that he's shaken from his head
Just take this longing from my tongue
Whatever useless things these hands have done
Untie for me your satin brassiere
Like you would do for one you love
Like you would do for one you love
