I saw you this morning.
You were moving so fast.
Can’t seem to loosen my grip
On the past.
And I miss you so much.
There’s no one in sight.
And we’re still making love
In My Secret Life.

I smile when I’m angry.
I cheat and I lie.
I do what I have to do
To get by.
But I know what is wrong.
And I know what is right.
And I’d die for the truth
In My Secret Life…

From “In My Secret Life,” a song by Leonard Cohen written with Sharon Robinson from the album Ten New Songs.

The Paris sky
is blue and bright
I want to fly
with all my might

Her legs are long
her heart is high
The chains are strong
but so am I

"The Paris Sky," a poem by Leonard Cohen from his book Book of Longing.

Lower your eyelids
Over the water
Join the night
Like the trees you lie under

How many crickets
How many waves
Easy after easy
On the one way shore

There are stars
From another view
And a moon to draw
The seaweed through

No one calls the crickets vain
In their time, in their time
No one will call you idle
For dying with the sun
"Song to Make Me Still," a poem by Leonard Cohen from his book The Spice-Box of Earth.  The poem is also a song from Anjani’s album I Came To Love available from CDBaby.

I sit in my chair
I look at the street
The neighbor returns
My smile of defeat
Can’t leave the house
Or answer the phone
I’m going down
But I’m not alone

Settling at last
Accounts of the soul
This for the trash
That paid in full
No one to follow
And nothing to teach
Except that the goal
Falls short of the reach

If something won’t open
Don’t mean there’s a key
Don’t mean there’s a secret
They’re keeping from me
Move with the leaves
Shine with the chrome
You’re almost alive
Almost at home

Can’t leave my house
Or answer the phone
I’m going down
But I’m not alone
I sit in my chair
I look at the street
The neighbor returns
My smile of defeat

"The Goal," a song by Anjani with words by Leonard Cohen from Anjani’s album I Came To Love.

I Came To Love is available at CDBaby.
