You Know Who I Am

This song is by Leonard Cohen and appears on the album Songs from a Room (1969) and on the live album Live Songs (1973).

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.

You know who I am,
You've stared at the sun,
Well, I am the one who loves
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.

You know who I am,
You've stared at the sun,
Well, I am the one who loves
Changing from nothing to one.

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.

You know who I am,
You've stared at the sun,
Well, I am the one who loves
Changing from nothing to one.

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.

You know who I am,
You've stared at the sun,
Well, I am the one who loves
Changing from nothing to one.
