"Store Room" as written by and Leonard Cohen....
its not the wind that keeps you up
its not the snow, its not the moon
coming like a headlight through your window.
its not the thumbnail of a scream
that scrapes away your dream

its just this man
taking what he needs
from the store room

its not the news of burning towns
that ruins your mind
like a spool you turn, and you turn
but it won't unwind
no these wars you did not start
they don't tear your sleep apart


its just a man
taking what he needs
from the store room


and now this woman
by your side well...she's asleep
and theres nothing you can give her
and theres nothing you wanna keep
you don't even try to prove
that the noise is neighbors making love


its just a man
taking what he needs
from the store room


well go to sleep
and change the locks
when you wake up
share your toast maybe spill some coffee from your cup
oh theres nothing left to choose
and there is so much more to lose


theres this man
taking what he needs
from the store room

its not the wind that keeps you up
its not the snow, its not the moon
coming like a headlight through your window
its not the thumbnail of a scream
that scrapes away your dream


its just a man
taking what he needs
from the store room


its not the news of burning towns
that ruins your mind
like a spool you turn and turn
but it won't unwind
no these wars you did not start
they don't tear your sleep apart


its just a man
taking what he needs
from the store room

and now the woman by your side
well shes awake
but theres nothing you can give her
and theres nothing you wanna take
you don't even try to prove
that the noise is neighbors making love

its just a man
taking what he needs
from the store room


aww go to sleep
and change the locks
when you wake up
share your toast maybe spill some coffee from your cup
hes got nothing left to choose
and you've got so much more to lose


theres just a man
taking what he needs
from the store room

its not the wind...
