Chords and Lyrics Leonard Cohen - You Want It Darker


Artist : Leonard Cohen
Song : You Want It Darker

Verse :

Em
If you are the dealer, I'm out of the game
G Am
If you are the healer, it means I'm broken and lame
Em
If thine is the glory then mine must be the shame
G Am
You want it darker
Em G Am
We kill the flame

Pre Chorus :
Em
Magnified, sanctified, be thy holy name
G Am
Vilified, crucified, in the human frame
Em
A million candles burning for the help that never came
G Am
You want it darker

Chorus :
C G D
Hineni, hineni
Em G Am
I'm ready, my lord

Verse :
Em
There's a lover in the story
Em
But the story's still the same
Em
There's a lullaby for suffering
G Am
And a paradox to blame
Em
But it's written in the scriptures

And it's not some idle claim
G Am
You want it darker
Em G Am
We kill the flame

Verse :
Em
They're lining up the prisoners
Em
And the guards are taking aim
Em
I struggled with some demons
G Am
They were middle class and tame
Em
I didn't know I had permission to murder and to maim
G Am
You want it darker

Chorus :
C G D
Hineni, hineni
Em G Am
I'm ready, my lord

Post Chorus :
Em
Magnified, sanctified, be thy holy name
G Am
Vilified, crucified, in the human frame
Em
A million candles burning for the love that never came
G Am
You want it darker
Em G Am
We kill the flame

Verse :
Em
If you are the dealer, let me out of the game
G Am
If you are the healer, I'm broken and lame
Em
If thine is the glory then mine must be the shame
G Am
You want it darker

Chorus :
C G D
Hineni, hineni
C G D
Hineni, hineni
Em G Am
I'm ready, my lord
