words Leonard Cohen, music Lewis Furey
(Michael) It's late, it's very late
How did it get so late?
(Judy) What was it we were thinking of?
(Michael & Judy) We didn't want this,
(Judy) There must be some mistake
(Michael) What was it I forgot to tell you?
(Judy) What was it I forgot?
There was a promise here
A child who knew me
A bitter bedtime story
(Michael & Judy) Another house of some forgotten family
It's very late
There must be some mistake
And now this place
(Michael) There was a woman here
A woman who knew me
A table set before me
(Michael & Judy) It is the walls
it is the victory of the walls
It is the room
it is the distance of the room
(Michael) Without her...
(Judy) Without you.
