Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Lady Midnight  Leonard Cohen

[C]I c[G7]ame by myself to a ve[F]ry crowded p[C]lace
[G7]I was looking for someone who had l[F]ines in her f[C]ace
[C]I found her there but she was pa[F]st all concern
I a[C]sked her to hold me, said 'la[F]dy unfold me'
But she [C]scorned me and she [F]told me
I was [G7]dead, and I could never re[C]turn

I argued all night, like so many have before
Saying, whatever you give me, seem to need so much more
Then she pointed at me, where I leaned on her door
She said 'don't try to use me, or slyly refuse me
Just win me or lose me, it is this that the darkness is for'

I cried 'Oh Lady Midnight, I fear you grow old
Stars eat your body and the night makes you cold'
'If we cry now' she said 'It will just be ignored'
So I walked thru the morning, sweet early morning
I could hear my Lady calling,
You've won me, you've won me, my lord
Yes you've won me, you've won me, my lord
