Show Me the Place Where the Word Became A Man

Lots of Advent themes in this new Leonard Cohen song (LISTEN)

 

 

 

show me the place, where you want your slave to go
show me the place, i’ve forgotten i don’t know
show me the place where my head is bend and low
show me the place, where you want your slave to go

 

show me the place, help me roll away the stone
show me the place, i can’t move this thing alone
show me the place where the word became a man
show me the place where the suffering began

 

the troubles came i saved what i could save
a shred of light, a particle away
but there were chains so i hastened to the hay
there were chains, a lot of chains
like a spade

 

show me the place, where you want your slave to go
show me the place, i’ve forgotten i don’t know
show me the place, where you want your slave to go

 

the troubles came i saved what i could save
a shred of light, a particle away
but there were chains so i hastened to the hay
there were chains so i loved you like a slave

 

show me the place
show me the place
show me the place

 

show me the place, help me roll away the stone
show me the place, i can’t move this thing alone
show me the place where the word became a man
show me the place where the suffering began
