I'm Your Man

I'm Your Man - Leonard Cohen Cover by Hannah Jane

I'M YOUR MAN - gifted to the world 33 years ago from the man who recognised writing was his only solace, his truest purpose x

This is my favourite song from the album that transformed Leonard Cohen from the poet he was, into a best-selling artist that folk listened to and loved.

He may be gone, but his legacy reminds me over and over - never give up.

Lyrics -

If you want a lover I'll do anything you ask me to

And if you want another kind of love I'll wear a mask for you

If you want a partner, take my hand, or If you want to strike me down in anger

Here I stand I'm your man

If you want a boxer I will step into the ring for you

And if you want a doctor I'll examine every inch of you

If you want a driver, climb inside

Or if you want to take me for a ride

You know you can I'm your man

Ah, the moon's too bright

The chain's too tight

The beast won't go to sleep

I've been running through these promises to you

That I made and I could not keep

Ah, but a man never got a woman back

Not by begging on his knees

Or I'd crawl to you baby and I'd fall at your feet

And I'd howl at your beauty like a dog in heat

And I'd claw at your heart, and I'd tear at your sheet

I'd say please (please) I'm your man

And if you've got to sleep a moment on the road I will steer for you

And if you want to work the street alone I'll disappear for you

If you want a father for your child

Or only want to walk with me a while across the sand

I'm your man SHOW LESS
