Dance Me to the End of Love

After Dance Me to the End of Love by Leonard Cohen

 

Dance me to Your beauty while the fire burns within

Dance me through the panic ’til I’m gathered safely in

Lift me on celestial sounds while I play the mourning dove

Dance me to the end of love

Dance me to the end of love

 

Oh let me see Your Real Form when the witnesses are gone

Let me feel You moving me till all the moving’s done

Show me finally what I only know the limits of

Dance me to the end of love

Dance me to the end of love

 

Dance me to the wedding now, dance me to Your song

Dance me oh so tenderly, dance me on and on

Till both of us are as one—no beneath, behind, above

Dance me to the end of love

Dance me to the end of love

 

Dance me for the drop souls who are waiting to be born

Dance me past the curtains that devotion has withdrawn

Spare me not the passion play or the crown of thorns

Dance me to the end of love

 

Dance me to Your beauty while the fire burns within

Dance me through the panic ’til I’m gathered safely in

Touch me oh so nakedly, take off the kid gloves

Dance me to the end of love

Dance me to the end of love

Dance me to the end of love
