Dance Me to the End of Love Printable Lyrics – PDF

by Leonard Cohen

“Dance Me to the End of Love” is a song by Leonard Cohen from his 1984 album Various Positions. The rhythm is that of Greek “Hasapiko” dance probably inspired by Cohen’s known affiliation to the greek culture. Although it appears to be a love song, it’s a denouncement of the monstrosities of the Holocaust; in between other brutalities, the Nazis forced a string quartet to play beside the crematoriums in the death camps while waiting to follow their partners to death.

Why listen to this song apart from being seduced by the haunting melody and the profound poetry? It’s not only a chance to talk about the holocaust with your kids when they are old enough to understand; It’s an inspiration about the power of love that persists even in midst of the deepest darkness.

Lyrics

Dance me to your beauty with a burning violin
Dance me through the panic till I’m gathered safely in
Lift me like an olive branch and be my homeward dove
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love.

Oh, let me see your beauty when the witnesses are gone
Let me feel you moving like they do in Babylon
Show me slowly 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 on and on
Dance me very tenderly and dance me very long
We’re both of us beneath our love, we’re both of us above
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love.

Dance me to the children who are asking to be born
Dance me through the curtains that our kisses have outworn
Raise a tent of shelter now, though every thread is torn
Dance me to the end of love.

Dance me to your beauty with a burning violin
Dance me through the panic till I’m gathered safely in
Touch me with your naked hand or touch me with your glove
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love
