Leonard Cohen – The Guests

One by one the guests arrive
The guests are coming through
The open-hearted many
The broken-hearted few

And no one knows where the night is going
And no one knows where the wine is flowing
Oh love, I need you, I need you, I need you, I need you
I need you now

And those who dance, begin to dance
Those who weap, begin
And welcome, welcome cries of voice
Let all my guests come in

And no one knows where the night is going
And no one knows where the wine is flowing
Oh love, I need you, I need you, I need you, I need you
I need you now

And all goes stumbling through that house
In lonely secrecy
Saying do reveal yourself
or why has thou forsaken me

And no one knows where the night is going
And no one knows where the wine is flowing
Oh love, I need you, I need you, I need you, I need you
I need you now

All at once the tortures flare
The inner door flies open
One by one they enter there
in every style of passion

And no one knows where the night is going
And no one knows where the wine is flowing
Oh love, I need you, I need you, I need you, I need you
I need you now

And here they take their sweet repast
Wild house and grounds resolve
And one by one the guests are cast beyond the garden wall

And no one knows where the night is going
And no one knows where the wine is flowing
Oh love, I need you, I need you, I need you, I need you
I need you now

For those who dance, begin to dance
Those who weap, begin
Those who earnestly are lost
are lost, and lost begin

And no one knows where the night is going
And no one knows where the wine is flowing
Oh love, I need you, I need you, I need you, I need you
I need you now

One by one the guests arrive
The guests are coming through
The broken-hearted many
The open-hearted few

And no one knows where the night is going
And no one knows where the wine is flowing
Oh love, I need you, I need you, I need you, I need you
I need you now
