Alexandra Leaving  Leonard Cohen

Chords:
Am7/E: 002010
Bb6: x13333
[F]Suddenly the night has grown c[Dm]older
[C]The god of love prep[Bb]aring t[C]o depar[F]t
[F]Alexandra hoisted on his sh[Dm]oulder
[Bb]They slip between the sentries [C]of the hear[F]t
Uph[Am7]eld by the simplicities of pl[Bb]easure
[Gm]They gain the light, they formlessly entw[C]ine
[F]And radiant beyond your widest m[Dm]easure
[Bb]They fall among the voices [C]and the win[F]e
It's not a tr[Bb]ick, your s[C]enses all dec[Dm]eiving
A fitful dr[Bb]eam, the morning will exh[C]aust
Say good[F]by[Am7/E]e to A[Dm]lex[C]andra l[Bb]eaving
Th[Bb6]en say goodbye to [C]Alexandra l[F]ost
[F]Even though she sleeps upon your s[Dm]atin
[C]Even though she w[Bb]akes you w[C]ith a kiss[F]
[F]Do not say the moment was im[Dm]agined
[C]Do not stoop to str[Bb]ateg[C]ies like th[F]is
[Am7]As someone long prepared for this to h[Bb]appen
[Gm]Go firmly to the window Drink it [C]in
Exquisite m[F]usic Alexandra l[Dm]aughing
[Bb]Your first commitments tangib[C]le aga[F]in
And you who h[Bb]ad the h[C]onor of her [Dm]evening
And by that h[Bb]onor had your own rest[C]ored
Say good[F]by[Am7/E]e to A[Dm]lex[C]andra l[Bb]eaving
[Bb6]Alexandra l[C]eaving with her l[F]ord
Even though she sl[Bb]eeps up[C]on your s[Dm]atin
Even though she w[Bb]akes you w[C]ith a k[Dm]iss
Do not say the m[Bb]oment w[C]as imag[Dm]ined
Do not stoop to str[Gm]ategies like th[C]is
[F]As someone long prepared for the occ[Dm]asion
[C]In full command of [Bb]every pl[C]an you wr[F]ecked
[F]Do not choose a coward's explan[Dm]ation
[C]That hides behind the c[Bb]ause and th[C]e effec[F]t
And you who w[Bb]ere bew[C]ildered by a m[Dm]eaning
Whose code was br[Bb]oken, crucifix uncr[C]ossed
Say good[F]by[Am7/E]e to A[Dm]lex[C]andra l[Bb]eaving
Th[Bb6]en say goodbye to [C]Alexandra l[F]ost
Say good[F]by[Am7/E]e to A[Dm]lex[C]andra l[Bb]eaving
Th[Bb6]en say goodbye to [C]Alexandra l[F]ost
