The Guests

Leonard Cohen / Leonard Cohen: Recent Songs (1979)

Em D C D
One by one, the guests arrive, the guests are coming through.
Em D C E
The open-hearted many, the broken-hearted few.
A D
And no one knows where the night is going
A D
And no one knows why the wine is flowing
C
Oh love I need you, I need you, I need you, I need you
E7 A
now - - I need you now.
 
And those who dance, begin to dance, those who weep begin 
And "welcome, welcome" cries a voice "let all my guests come in." 
And no one knows where the night is going 
And no one knows why the wine is flowing 
Oh love I need you, I need you, I need you, I need you 
now - - I need you now. 
 
And all go stumbling through that house, in lonely secrecy 
Saying "do reveal yourself", or "why has thou forsaken me? " 
And no one knows... 
 
All at once, the torches flare, the inner door flies open 
One by one, they enter there, in every style of passion 
And no one knows... 
 
And here they take their sweet repast, while house and grounds dissolve 
And one by one the guests are cast, beyond the garden wall 
And no one knows... 
 
And those who dance, begin to dance, those who weep begin 
Those who earnestly are lost, are lost and lost again 
And no one knows... 
 
One by one, the guests arrive, the guests are coming through 
The open-hearted many, the broken-hearted few 
And no one knows...
