                SUZANNE
  Leonard Cohen

 D   
Suzanne takes you down 

to her place by the river
        Em
You can hear the boats go by
                
You can spend the night forever
        D
And you know that she's half crazy

But that's why you want to be there
        F#m
And she feeds you tea and oranges
          G
That come all the way from China
    D
And just when you mean to tell her

That you have no love to give her
         Em
Then she gets you on her wavelength

And lets the river answer
            D
That you've always been her lover

        F#m
And you want to travel with her
        G
And you want to travel blind
        D
And you think you maybe trust her
            Em                        
Cause she's touched your perfect body 
          D
with her mind.


And Jesus was a sailor
When he walked on the water
And he spent a long time watching
And when he knew for certain
Only drowning men could see him
He said "All men shall be sailors then
Until the sea shall free them"
But he himself was broken
Long before the sky would open
Forsaken, almost human
He sank beneath your wisdom like a stone

And you want to travel with him
And you want to travel blind
And you think you maybe trust him
For he's touched your perfect body 
with his mind.

And Suzanne takes you down 
to her place by the river
She is wearing rags and feathers 
And the sun pours down like honey
On our lady of the harbor
And she shows you where to look
Amid the garbage and the flowers
There are heroes in the seaweed
There are children in the morning
They are leaning out for love
And they will lean that way forever
While Suzanne holds the mirror

And you want to travel with her
And you want to travel blind
And you think maybe you'll trust her
For you've touched her perfect body with your mind.
