Passing through | Leonard Cohen

I saw jesus on the cross on a hill called calvary
“do you hate mankind for what they done to you? ”
He said, “talk of love not hate, things to do – it’s getting late.
I’ve so little time and I’m only passing through.”

Passing through, passing through.
Sometimes happy, sometimes blue,
Glad that I ran into you.
Tell the people that you saw me passing through.

I saw adam leave the garden with an apple in his hand,
I said “now you’re out, what are you going to do? ”
“plant some crops and pray for rain, maybe raise a little cane.
I’m an orphan now, and I’m only passing through.”

Passing through, passing through …

I was with washington at valley ford, shivering in the snow.
I said, “how come the men here suffer like they do? ”
“men will suffer, men will fight, even die for what is right
Even though they know they’re only passing through”

Passing through, passing through …

I was with franklin roosevelt’s side on the night before he died.
He said, “one world must come out of world war two” (ah, the fool)
“yankee, russian, white or tan, ” he said, “a man is still a man.
We’re all on one road, and we’re only passing through.”

Passing through, passing through …

Passing through, passing through …
