Lyrics: Almost Like The Blues by Leonard Cohen

Update: The official lyrics follow:

I saw some people starving
There was murder, there was rape
Their villages were burning
They were trying to escape
I couldn’t meet their glances
I was staring at my shoes
It was acid, it was tragic
It was almost like the blues

I have to die a little
Between each murderous thought
And when I’m finished thinking
I have to die a lot
There’s torture and there’s killing
And there’s all my bad reviews
The war, the children missing
Lord, it’s almost like the blues

So I let my heart get frozen
To keep away the rot
My father said I’m chosen
My mother said I’m not
I listened to their story
Of the Gypsies and the Jews
It was good, it wasn’t boring
It was almost like the blues

There is no G-d in Heaven
And there is no Hell below
So says the great professor
Of all there is to know
But I’ve had the invitation
That a sinner can’t refuse
And it’s almost like salvation
It’s almost like the blues

  1. Note: I wrote some material for and assisted with some of the art in Leonard Cohen: Everybody Knows. Nonetheless, I can in good faith assure readers that the enthusiasm I express for this book is not simply a function of me sucking up to the author, the publisher, and, indirectly, Leonard Cohen – it’s also a matter of self-aggrandizement. Happily, that enthusiasm is absolutely justified. []
