Leonard Cohen – Need the speed

If you ever read this, this is one of my favourites and sums up nicely all I ever needed. Still all I need.

Need the speed
need the wine
need the pleasure
in my spine

need your hand
to pull me out
need your juices
on my snout

need to see
I never saw
your need for me
your longing raw

need to hear
I never heard
against my ear
your dirty word

need to have
you summon me
like moon above
the gathered sea

need to know
I never knew
the tidal towing
come from you

need to feel
I never felt
you magnet pulling
at my self

now it fades
now it’s gone
hormonal rage
unquiet song
