I Tried to Leave You

This song is by Leonard Cohen and appears on the album New Skin for the Old Ceremony (1974).

I tried to leave you, I don't deny
I closed the book on us, at least a hundred times
I'd wake up every morning by your side

The years go by, you lose your pride
The baby's crying, so you do not go outside
And all your work it's right before your eyes

Goodnight, my darling, I hope you're satisfied
The bed is kind of narrow, but my arms are open wide
And here's a man still working for your smile
