Leonard Cohen
"The Hills" lyrics

The Hills

I can make the hills
The system is shot
I'm living on pills
For which I thank God

My animal howls
My angel's upset
But I'm not allowed
A trace of regret

For someone will use
The thing I could not be
My heart will be hurt
Impersonally

She'll step on the path
She'll see what I mean
My will cut in half
And freedom between

For less than a second
Our lives will collide
The endless suspended
The door open wide

And she will be born
To someone like you
What I left undone
She will certainly do

I know she is coming
And I know she will look
And that is the longing
And this is the hook

I can't make the hills
The system is shot
I'm living on pills
For which I thank God

My page was too white
My ink was too thin
The day wouldn't write
What the night penciled in

But I know she is coming
And I know she will look
That is the longing
This is the hook

I know she is coming
And I know she will look
That is the longing
And this is the hook

I can make the hills
The system is shot
I'm living on pills
For which I thank God

I sailed like a swan
I sank like a rock
But time is long gone
Past my laughing stock

And I can make the hills
The system is shot
I'm living on pills
For which I thank God
