Cohen Live is a live album by Leonard Cohen released in 1994.

The songs were recorded live in 1988 on the I'm Your Man Tour and in 1993 on The Future World Tour. Several of the songs have altered lyrics, which are printed in the liner notes as sung.[2] This was Cohen's first live release since Live Songs in 1973. Reviews were mixed, with Time writing, "This glum, melancholy collection should be dispensed only with large doses of Prozac."
