Leonard Cohen - Darkness


... it was drinking from your cup,
I got the darkness
from your little ruby cup
I said ‘is this contagious?'
You said ‘just drink it up'

I've got no future baby
I know my days are few
I've got no future though
As I say I know my days are few
Is the present not that pleasant
Just a lot of things to do

I don't like your sticky little bud
I don't like alcohol
I don't need your loving touch
That's always been your call
Cause there's nothing but the darkness
Makes any sense to me at all

I should have seen the darkness
It was right behind your eyes
All those pools so deep and heartless
I just had to take a dive
Ah yea but winning you was easy
Ah but the darkness was the price

Got no future (x3)

Yea I know the days are few
The present is not that pleasant
Just a lot of things to do
