Leonard Cohen – Bird on the Wire Lyrics

Bird on the Wire by MUSIC VIDEO

Bird on the Wire LYRCIS by Leonard Cohen:
[Verse 1]
Like a bird on the wire
Like a drunk in a midnight choir
I have tried in my way to be free
Like a worm on a hook
Like a knight from some old fashioned book
I have saved all my ribbons for thee

[Chorus]
If I, if I have been unkind
I hope that you can just let it go by
If I, if I have been untrue
I hope you know it was never to you
[Verse 2]
Oh like a baby, stillborn
Like a beast with his horn
I have torn everyone who reached out for me
But I swear by this song
And by all that I have done wrong
I will make it all up to thee

[Chorus]
I saw a beggar leaning on his wooden crutch
He said to me, “You must not ask for so much”
And a pretty woman leaning in her darkened door
She cried to me, “Hey, why not ask for more?”

[Outro]
Oh like a bird on the wire
Like a drunk in a midnight choir
I have tried in my way to be free
