Slow
Leonard Cohen Lyrics


I'm slowing down the tune
I never liked it fast
You want to get there soon
I want to get there last

It's not because I'm old
It's not the life I led
I always liked it slow
That's what my momma said

I'm lacing up my shoe
But I don't want to run
I'll get here when I do
Don't need no starting gun

It's not because I'm old
And it's not what dying does
I always liked it slow
Slow is in my blood

I always liked it slow:
I never liked it fast
With you it's got to go:
With me it's got to last

It's not because I'm old
It's not because I'm dead
I always liked it slow
That's what my momma said

All your moves are swift
All your turns are tight
Let me catch my breath
I thought we had all night

I like to take my time
I like to linger as it flies
A weekend on your lips
A lifetime in your eyes

I always liked it slow:
I never liked it fast
With you it's got to go:
With me it's got to last

It's not because I'm old
It's not the life I led
I always liked it slow
That's what my momma said

I'm slowing down the tune
I never liked it fast
You want to get there soon
I want to get there last

So baby let me go
You're wanted back in town
In case they want to know
I'm just trying to slow it down

SLOW BY Leonard Cohen

I'm slowing down the tune
I've never liked it fast
You wanna get there soon
I wanna get there last
It's not because I'm old
It's not the life I led
I always liked it slow
That's what my mamma said

I'm lacing up my shoes
But I don't want to run
I'll get there when i do
Don't need no starting gun
It's not because I'm old
And it's not what dying does
I've always liked it slow
Slow is in my blood

[Chorus]
I've always like it slow
I never liked it fast
With you it's got to go
With me it's got to last
It's not because I'm old
It's not because I'm dead
I've always liked it slow
That's what my mama said

All your moves are swift
All your turns are tight
Let me catch my breath
I thought we had all night
I like to take my time
I like to linger as it flies
A weekend on your lips
A lifetime in your eyes

[Chorus]
I've always like it slow
I never liked it fast
With you it's got to go
With me it's got to last
It's not because I'm old
It's not the life I led
I've always like it slow
That's what my mama said

[Chorus]
I'm slowing down the tune
I've never liked it fast
You wanna get there soon
I wanna get there last
So, baby let me go
You're wanted back in town
In case they want to know
I'm just trying to slow down

Leonard is living in our hearts forever

Easy come but she was hard to go 'cuz she took such a big hole outta' my heart & soul,
So I'm Rocking it hard & Rolling it slow 'cuz that should always be apropos,
And even though it's not my status quo-I still must travel for I have a long ways to go
As I tread ever so lightly upon this new-found neocon oligarch's tableau,  
I tell myself that it's just another neoconservative dog & pony show
If the no-information voters finally wake-up then we'll give 'em the old heave-ho
But in the meantime it's gonna' be a mighty damned hard row to hoe
So remind yourself that mighty oaks from acorns grow - but I'd still rather deliver a body-blow. ...

Slow is in my blood

I always liked it slow:

Thanks ..... it's better with the lyrics.

Leonard, you have been my favourite singer since the 60's. A poet with a deep philosophical perspective. A master of multiple meanings. A thinker. And your message is not drowned out by musical paraphernalia, but enhanced by it when needed.

Miroslava Sekulic

Covek koji je muziku kao umetnicki izraz, uzdigao na najvisi nivo I prblizio nas Bogu na svoj velicanstveni nacin, dyson, srcem I svim svojim kreativnim umecem.

Ken Smeaton

The greatest modern poet, always a revelation and a real pleasure to listen and contemplate. Thank you Leonard.

Thanks for the video content! Excuse me for the intrusion, I am interested in your thoughts. Have you thought about - Rozardner Stopping Sounds Reality (Have a quick look on google cant remember the place now)? It is a good exclusive product for how to instantly slow down music by software minus the hard work. Ive heard some decent things about it and my best friend Jordan got astronomical results with it.

Leonard Cohen will be thoroughly missed. The best Canadian poet of his time, and a musician whose music will never die.
