Leonard Cohen: Be For Real

BE FOR REAL
/Leonard Cohen/
/by Frederick Knight/

Are you back in my life to stay
Or is it just for today
Oh, that you're gonna need me
If it's a thrill you're looking for
Honey, I'm flexible
Oh, yeah

Just be for real
Won't you, baby
Be for real, oh, baby
You see I
I don't want to be hurt by love
Again

So you see I'm not naive
I just would like to believe
Ah, what you tell me
So don't give me the world today
And tomorrow take it away
Don't do that to me, darling

Just be for real
Won't you, baby
Be for real
Won't you, baby
You see I
I don't want to be hurt by love
Again

Been hurt so many times
You see I
I don't want to be hurt by love
Again

(I don't give a damn about the truth, baby.
Except for the naked truth.
Oh, yeah.)

Just be for real
Won't you, baby
Be for real
Won't you, baby
You see I
I don't want to be hurt by love
Again

Oh, no, no, no
It's just that I
I don't want to be hurt by love
Again

Thanks for the song Mr. Knight.
