You Know Who I Am
Leonard Cohen Lyrics


I cannot follow you, my love,
You cannot follow me.
I am the distance you put between
All of the moments that we will be.

You know who I am,
You've stared at the sun,
Well I am the one who loves
Changing from nothing to one.
Sometimes I need you naked,
Sometimes I need you wild,
I need you to carry my children in
And I need you to kill a child.
You know who I am

If you should ever track me down
I will surrender there
And I will leave with you one broken man
Whom I will teach you to repair.
You know who I am

I cannot follow you, my love,
You cannot follow me.
I am the distance you put between
All of the moments that we will be.
You know who I am

I cannot follow you, my love
You cannot follow me
I am the distance you put between
All of the moments that we will be

You know who I am
You've stared at the sun
Well I am the one who loves
Changing from nothing to one

Sometimes I need you naked
Sometimes I need you wild
I need you to carry my children in
And I need you to kill a child

You know who I am
You've stared at the sun
Well I am the one who loves
Changing from nothing to one

If you should ever track me down
I will surrender there
And I will leave with you one broken man
Whom I will teach you to repair

You know who I am
You've stared at the sun
Well I am the one who loves
Changing from nothing to one

I cannot follow you, my love
You cannot follow me
I am the distance you put between
All of the moments that we will be

You know who I am
You've stared at the sun
Well I am the one who loves
Changing from nothing to one
