“It was you that this longing was made for” Leonard Cohen Performs Bird On A Wire, Featuring Bob Metzger On Guitar & Dino Soldo On Sax – Florence 2010

Ah, don’t cry, don’t cry, don’t cry anymore
It’s all over now, it’s done, it has been paid for
I say don’t cry, don’t cry, you are always the one
It was you that this longing was made for

 
This verse, an addition to the studio version of Bird On A Wire, renders the song more personal and more moving.
