A Street (by Leonard Cohen)

I used to be your favorite drunk
Good for one more laugh
Then we both ran out of luck
And luck was all we had

 

You put on a uniform
To fight the Civil War
I tried to join but no one liked
The side I’m fighting for

 

So let’s drink to when it’s over
And let’s drink to when we meet
I’ll be standing on this corner
Where there used to be a street

 

You left me with the dishes
And a baby in the bath
And you’re tight with the militias
You wear their camouflage

 

I guess that makes us equal
But I want to march with you
An extra in the sequel
To the old red-white-and-blue

 

So let’s drink to when it’s over
And let’s drink to when we meet
I’ll be standing on this corner
Where there used to be a street

 

I cried for you this morning
And I’ll cry for you again
But I’m not in charge of sorrow
So please don’t ask me when

 

I know the burden’s heavy
As you bear it through the night
Some people say it’s empty
But that doesn’t mean it’s light

 

So let’s drink to when it’s over
And let’s drink to when we meet
I’ll be standing on this corner
Where there used to be a street

 

It’s going to be September now
For many years to come
Every heart adjusting
To that strict September drum

 

I see the Ghost of Culture
With numbers on his wrist
Salute some new conclusion
Which all of us have missed

 

So let’s drink to when it’s over
And let’s drink to when we meet
I’ll be standing on this corner
Where there used to be a street
