Anyhow

Album: Old Ideas (2012)
  • I know it really is a pity
    The way you treat me now
    I know you can’t forgive me
    But forgive me anyhow
    The ending got so ugly
    I even heard you say
    You never ever loved me
    But could you love me anyway

    I dreamed about you baby
    You were wearing half your dress
    I know you have to hate me
    But could you hate me less?
    I used up all my chances
    And you’ll never take me back
    But there ain’t no harm in asking
    Could you cut me one more slack?

    I’m naked and I’m filthy
    And there’s sweat upon my brow
    And both of us are guilty
    Anyhow
    Have mercy on me baby
    After all I did confess
    Even though you have to hate me
    Could you hate me less?

    It’s a shame and it’s a pity
    I know you can’t forgive me
    The ending got so ugly
    You never ever loved me
    Dreamed about you baby
    I know you have to hate me
    I’m naked and I’m filthy
    And both of us are guilty
    Anyhow
    Have mercy on me baby Writer/s: LEONARD COHEN, PATRICK LEONARD
