The Law Lyrics – Leonard Cohen

Lyrics of The Law By Leonard Cohen

The Law Lyrics

How many times did you call me
And I knew it was late
I left everybody
But I never went straight
I don’t claim to be guilty
But I do understand
There’s a law there’s an arm there’s a hand
There’s a law there’s an arm there’s a hand

Now my heart’s like a blister
From doing what I do
If the moon has a sister
It’s got to be you
I’m going to miss you forever
Tho’ it’s not what I planned
There’s a law there’s an arm there’s a hand
There’s a law there’s an arm there’s a hand

Now the deal has been dirty
Since dirty began
I’m not asking for mercy
Not from the man
You just don’t ask for mercy
While you’re still on the stand
There’s a law there’s an arm there’s a hand
There’s a law there’s an arm there’s a hand

I don’t claim to be guilty
Guilty’s too grand
There’s a law there’s an arm there’s a hand
There’s a law there’s an arm there’s a hand
That’s all I can say baby
That’s all I can say
It wasn’t for nothing
That they put me away
I fell with my angel
Down the chain of command

There’s a law there’s an arm there’s a hand
There’s a law there’s an arm there’s a hand
There’s a law there’s an arm there’s a hand
