"Dance Me to the End of Love" is a 1984 song by Leonard Cohen.
It was first performed by Cohen, on his 1984 album Various Positions.
It has since been recorded by various artists, and has been described as "trembling on the brink of becoming a standard".

In 1996, Welcome Books released a book called Dance Me to the End of Love, as part of its "Art & Poetry" series; the book featured the lyrics of the song alongside paintings by Henri Matisse.
