"Amen" as written by and Leonard Cohen....
Tell me again
When I’ve been to the river
And I’ve taken the edge off my thirst
Tell me again
We’re alone and I’m listening
I’m listening so hard that it hurts
Tell me again
When I’m clean and I’m sober
Tell me again
When I’ve seen through the horror
Tell me again
Tell me over and over
Tell me that you want me then

Amen
Amen
Amen
Amen

Tell me again
When the victims are singing
And the laws of remorse are restored
Tell me again
That you know what I’m thinking
But vengeance belongs to the Lord
Tell me again
When I’m clean and I’m sober
Tell me again
When I’ve seen through the horror
Tell me again
Tell me over and over
Tell me that you love me then

Amen
Amen
Amen
Amen

Tell me again
When the day has been ransomed
And the night has no right to begin
Try me again
When the angels are panting
And scratching at the door to come in
Tell me again
When I’m clean and I’m sober
Tell me again
When I’ve seen through the horror
Tell me again
Tell me over and over
Tell me that you need me then

Amen
Amen
Amen
Amen

Tell me again
When the filth of the butcher
Is washed in the blood of the lamb
Tell me again
When the rest of the culture
Has passed through the eye of the camp
Tell me again
When I’m clean and I’m sober
Tell me again
When I’ve seen through the horror
Tell me again
Tell me over and over
Tell me that you love me then

Amen
Amen
Amen
Amen

    General CommentTell me again when I've been to the river
    And I've taken the edge off my thirst
    Tell me again when we're alone and I'm listening Listening so hard that it hurts
    Tell me again when I'm clean and sober
    Tell me again when I've seen through the horror
    Tell me again, tell me over and over
    Tell me that you want me then
    Amen, Amen, Amen, Amen Amen

    Tell me again when the victims are singing
    And the laws of remorse are restored
    Tell me again that you know what I'm thinking But vengeance belongs to the Lord.
    Tell me again when I'm clean and I'm sober
    Tell me again when I've seen through the horror
    Tell me again, tell me over and over,
    Tell me that you love me then
    Amen, Amen, Amen, Amen Amen

    Tell me again when the day has been ransomed And the night has no right to begin
    Try me again when the angels are panting
    And scratching at the door to come in.
    Tell me again when I'm clean and I'm sober
    Tell me again when I've seen through the horror
    Tell me again, tell me over and over
    Tell me again that you need me then
    Amen, Amen, Amen, Amen Amen

    Tell me again when the filth of the butcher
    Is washed in the blood of the lamb
    Tell me again when the rest of the culture
    Has passed through the eye of the cam
    Tell me again when I'm clean and I'm sober
    Tell me again when I've seen through the horror
    Tell me again, tell me over and over
    Tell me that you love me then
    Amen, Amen, Amen, Amen Amen
