Favourite Songs Day 1


3 Day Lyrical posts

Challenge accepted.

Day 1

My sincere thanks to Dr Sridhar for nominating me for a ‘3 day Lyric Challenge’
Please do check his wonderful blog at
Philosophy Through Photography

And dwell into the philosophical angle of his photos which is his area of deep interest as well.
Hence the apt title.

My choice for Day 1 of the Lyrical Challenge is byLeonard Cohen’s

Dance Me To The End Of Love”

As you click on his name above, you will see the link to my earlier dedication to this wonderful artist.

Have posted one of my favourite video of this song here . Do watch!

Here are the lyrics…

Dance me to your beauty with a burning violin
Dance me through the panic ’til 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 loveDance 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 loveDance 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 loveDance 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

    • Just saw your beautiful share . Although this challenge was about favourite lyrical songs … This song is testimony to the fact that sometimes words are not enough … The gamut of emotions that it conveyed was truly inspiring. Thank you for sharing this work of the amazing composer here.

        • Deep and silent sea, Close to you I feel protected

          You are so like me In your face I am reflected

          Tell me what to do For you know so well My soul is restless too Touching every shore

          You belong to no one ever Let the tempest roar You remain and dwell forever Secret are your ways

          Do you wonder that I’d love you All my days You can be unkind Where the children play And you drown their castles in the tide They don’t seem to mind For they run to you and

          Their arms are open wide Teach me to be free To be sure and strong and sea-like Deep and shining sea You are what I long to be like Let the world go by I will love you till The silent sea runs dry…
