Take this waltz-Cohen


Now in Vienna there's ten pretty women

There's a shoulder where death comes to cry

There's a lobby with nine hundred windows

There's a tree where the doves go to die

There's a piece that was torn from the morning

And it hangs in theGallery of Frost


Aey, aey, aey, aey

Take this waltz, take this waltz

Take this waltz with the clamp on its jaws


Oh I want you, I want you, I want you

On a chair with a dead magazine

In the cave at the tip of the lily

In some hallway where love's never been

On a bed where the moon has been sweating

In a cry filled with footsteps and sand

There's a concert hall in Vienna

Where your mouth had a thousand reviews

There's a bar where the boys have stopped talking

They've been sentenced to death by the blues

But who is it climbs to your picture

With a garland of freshly cut tears?

And I'll yield to the flood of your beauty

My cheap violin and my cross

And you'll carry me down on your dancing

To the pools that you lift on your wrist

Oh my love, oh my love

Take this waltz, take this waltz

It's yours now, it's all that there is


or listen
