I’m Your Man – My Day With Leonard Cohen

I usually don’t write to music, but yesterday I didn’t feel like the usual.

Leonard Cohen streamed on my laptop all afternoon, his mellow baritone creating the perfect mood for writing all kinds of sexy, wicked things. And although I was able to keep Mr. Cohen in the background of my mind for most of the day, when I’m Your Man came on, I couldn’t help but take a break and let it get all up in me.

I mean all up in me. Because it’s just so good like that.

The lyrics are perfection.

This song is the fucking sexiest.

Sexiest.

And it’s Dutch + Juma – my latest characters who take up all my time and energy – all day.

Listen to it.

Read it.

“I’m Your Man”

If you want a lover
I’ll do anything you ask me to
And if you want another kind of love
I’ll wear a mask for you
If you want a partner
Take my hand
Or if you want to strike me down in anger
Here I stand
I’m your man
If you want a boxer
I will step into the ring for you
And if you want a doctor
I’ll examine every inch of you
If you want a driver
Climb inside
Or if you want to take me for a ride
You know you can
I’m your man
Ah, the moon’s too bright
The chain’s too tight
The beast won’t go to sleep
I’ve been running through these promises to you
That I made and I could not keep
Ah but a man never got a woman back
Not by begging on his knees
Or I’d crawl to you baby
And I’d fall at your feet
And I’d howl at your beauty
Like a dog in heat
And I’d claw at your heart
And I’d tear at your sheet
I’d say please, please
I’m your man
And if you’ve got to sleep
A moment on the road
I will steer for you
And if you want to work the street alone
I’ll disappear for you
If you want a father for your child
Or only want to walk with me a while
Across the sand
I’m your man
