Leonard Cohen

And then leaning on your window sill
He'll say one day 
You caused his will to weaken 
With your love and warmth and shelter
And then taking from his wallet
An old schedule of trains, he'll say
"I told you when I came I was a stranger"

(I was having trouble deciding which verse from "The Stranger Song" to use when it suddenly occurred to me that I didn't have to choose -- nothing was stopping me from using both of them in consecutive posts.)
