Leonard Cohen – You Want It Darker Chords and Lyrics

Artist : Leonard Cohen
Song : You Want It Darker

[Verse] :
Em                                       
If you are the dealer, I'm out of the game
                                 G            Am
If you are the healer, it means I'm broken and lame
Em
If thine is the glory then mine must be the shame
                   G    Am
You want it darker
  Em              G   Am
We kill the flame

[Pre Chorus] :
Em
Magnified, sanctified, be thy holy name
                        G             Am
Vilified, crucified, in the human frame
Em
A million candles burning for the help that never came
                   G   Am
You want it darker

[Chorus] :
C   G    D
Hineni, hineni
                  Em  G   Am
I'm ready, my lord

[Verse] :
Em
There's a lover in the story
Em        
But the story's still the same
Em
There's a lullaby for suffering
       G               Am
And a paradox to blame
Em
But it's written in the scriptures

And it's not some idle claim
                  G   Am
You want it darker
Em                G   Am
We kill the flame

[Verse] :
Em
They're lining up the prisoners
Em
And the guards are taking aim
Em
I struggled with some demons
           G              Am
They were middle class and tame
Em
I didn't know I had permission to murder and to maim
                    G   Am
You want it darker

[Chorus] : 
C   G    D
Hineni, hineni
                Em  G   Am
I'm ready, my lord

[Post Chorus] :
Em
Magnified, sanctified, be thy holy name
                        G             Am
Vilified, crucified, in the human frame
Em
A million candles burning for the love that never came
                   G    Am
You want it darker
Em                 G    Am
We kill the flame

[Verse] :
Em                                       
If you are the dealer, let me out of the game
                                 G          Am
If you are the healer, I'm broken and lame
Em
If thine is the glory then mine must be the shame
                    G   Am
You want it darker

[Chorus] :
C   G    D
Hineni, hineni
C   G    D
Hineni, hineni
               Em   G   Am
I'm ready, my lord
