lyrics

Tonight Will Be Fine

Words & Music by Leonard Cohen
As performed by Allison Crowe

Sometimes I find I get to thinking of the past.
When we swore to each other that our love would last.
You kept right on loving, and I went on a fast
Now I am too thin and your love is too vast.
And I know from your eyes
yes, I know from your smile
that tonight will be fine,
will be fine, will be fine
for a while

Oh, I choose the room that I live in with care,
all the windows are empty and the walls almost bare,
there is only one room, there is only one prayer;
and I listen each night for your step on the stair

'cause I know from your eyes
yes, I know from your smile
that tonight will be fine,
will be fine, will be fine
for a while

And sometimes I see her undressing for me,
she's the soft naked lady love meant her to be
but to see her moving so brave and so free.
If I've got to remember that's a fine memory

'cause I know from your eyes
and I know from your smile
that tonight will be fine,
will be fine, will be fine
for a while

and I know from your eyes
yes, I know from your smile
that tonight will be fine,
will be fine, will be fine
for a while
