  • I loved your face, I loved your hair
    Your T-shirts and your evening wear
    As for the world, the job, the war
    I ditched them all to love you more

    And now you're gone, now you're gone
    As if there ever was a you
    Who broke the heart and made it new
    Who's moving on? Who's kidding who?

    I loved your moods, I loved the way
    They threatened every single day
    Your beauty ruled me, though I knew
    'Twas more hormonal than the view

    Now you're gone, now you're gone
    As if there ever was a you
    Queen of lilac, Queen of blue
    Who's moving on? Who's kidding who?

    I loved your face, I loved your hair
    Your T-shirts and your evening wear
    As for the world, the job, the war
    I ditched them all to love you more

    And now you're gone, now you're gone
    As if there ever was a you
    Who held me dying, pulled me through
    Who's moving on, who's kidding who

    Who's moving on? Who's kidding who? Writer/s: Leonard Cohen, Patrick Leonard
