Leonard Cohen so beautifully recites "A Thousand Kisses Deep" at the Tower Theatre in Philadelphia, PA on 10-22-09. Regrettably I missed the first verse/the first four lines - but -

A Thousand Kisses Deep

You came to me this morning
And you handled me like meat
You'd have to be a man to know
How good that feels, how sweet...

My mirrored twin, my next of kin
I'd know you in my sleep
And who but you would take me in
A thousand kisses deep...

I loved you when you opened
Like a lily to the heat
You see, I'm just another snowman
Standing in the rain and sleet
Who loved you with his frozen love
His second hand physique
With all he is and all he was
A thousand kisses deep...

I know you had to lie to me
I know you had to cheat
To pose all hot and high behind
The veils of sheer deceit...
Our perfect Porn Aristocrat
So elegant and cheap
I'm old - but I'm still into that
A thousand kisses deep...

I'm good at love, I'm good at hate
It's in between I freeze
I've been working out, but it's too late
It's been too late for years...

But you look good, you really do
They loved you on the street
If I could move I'd for kneel you
A thousand kisses deep...

I'm still working with the wine
Still dancing cheek to cheek
The band is playing "Auld Lang Syne"
But the heart will not retreat...

I ran with Diz, I sang with Ray
I never had their sweep
But once or twice, they let me play
A thousand kisses deep.

I loved you when you opened
Like a lily to the heat
You see, I'm just another snowman
Standing in the rain and sleet
Who loved you with his frozen love
His second hand physique
With all he is and all he was
A thousand kisses deep...

But you don't need to hear me now
And every word I speak
It counts against me anyhow
A thousand kisses deep...
