Song Description

How sexual attraction can distract us and sometimes rule our lives. We humans being only human battle with this throughout our lives. It can be a constant inner dialogue that doesn't want to go away - as in the case of Leonard Cohen.

Story Behind the Song

I read an interview with Leonard Cohen where he stated that he fell in love at least 100 times a day and wanted to cure himself of this. He went to therapy and also joined a Buddhist retreat in the California mountains to change himself through meditation and through following their spiritual precepts. This was the inspiration for this song - although this is probably a universal "problem" that most of us face throughout our lives and have to learn to deal with. I think most people will identify with this and find it humorous at least.

Lyrics

I fall like Leonard Cohen did
A hundred times a day
I really should get therapy
To make it go away
But life's too short I can't let go
Another train derailed today
But just like Leonard Cohen said
Another's on the way

And I don't know what to do
Guess I'll just fall in love with you

I fall in love
A hundred times
A hundred times
Well I fall like Leonard Cohen did
A hundred times a day
And I'm in denial
This inner child
Just has to have its way at least
A hundred times
A hundred times a day

It's just like picking flowers
I love the way they sway
And the fields just seem so endless
And each one's a brand new day

And I don't know what to say

I fall at least
A hundred times
A hundred times
I fall like Leonard Cohen did
A hundred times
A hundred times

And you're the one I'll miss I promise this
Though we never even shared a kiss
But after all the pain and blame I know
I'll live to love again

So if some day you see me
And if you catch my eye
You'll never know this inner show
Will be playing on my mind
I'll fall in love you'll walk on by
The only heart that breaks is mine
And you'll never know what I went through
At least a hundred times

And it's all because of you

It breaks at least
A hundred times
A hundred times
Well I fall like Leonard Cohen did
A hundred times a day
And I'm in denial
This inner child
Just has to have its way at least
A hundred times
A thousand times
And we're all like Leonard Cohen
In our minds
