Seems so long ago, Nancy. Leonard Cohen.

It seems so long ago
Nancy was alone
Looking at The Late Late Show
through a semi-precious stone.
In the House of Honesty
her father was on trial
In the House of Mistery
there was no one at all
there was no one at all.

It seems so long ago
none of us were strong
Nancy wore green stockings
and she slept with everyone.
She never said she'd wait for us
although she was alone.
I think she fell in love for us
in nineteen sixty-one
in nineteen sixty-one.

It seems so long ago
Nancy was alone

A forty-five beside her head
an open telephone.
We told her she was beautiful
we told her she was free
But none of us would meet her in
the House of Mistery
the House of Mistery.

And now you look around you
see her everywhere
Many use her body
many comb her hair.
And in the hollow of the night
when you are cold and numb
You hear her talking freely then
she's happy that you've come
she's happy that you've come.

c) Leonard Cohen. Songs from a room.
