You Know Who I Am  Leonard Cohen

Am (riff 2x)
I[Am] cannot follow y[Bm]ou my love
[Am]You cannot follow [Bm]me
[D]I am the distance you p[A]ut between
All of the mom[G]ents [G/F#]that we will [E]be
You k[D]now who I a[A]m
You've sta[D]red at the s[A]un
Well [D]I am the o[A]ne who loves
G G/# E Am (riff)
Changing from nothing to one
Sometimes I need you naked
Sometimes I need you wild
I need you to carry my children in
And I need you to kill a child ...CHORUS
If you should ever track me down
I will surrender there
And I will leave with you one broken man
Whom I will teach you to repair ...CHORUS
I cannot follow you, my love
You cannot follow me
I am the distance you put between
All of the moments that we will be ...CHORUS
