Tribute to LEONARD COHEN

Another great human being has left this world.   LEONARD COHEN, one of the greatest artists of our time and yet so humble.  His words and his music touched my soul.

From his latest CD “YOU WANT IT DARKER”:

  • It seemed the better way
  • When first I heard him speak
  • now its much too late
  • to turn the other cheek.
  •  Sounded like the truth
  • seemed the better way
  • Sounded like the truth
  • but it’s not the truth today.
  • I wonder what it was
  • I wonder what it meant
  • First he touched on love
  • Then he touched on death.
  • Sounded like the truth
  • seemed the better way
  • Sounded like the truth
  • but it’s not the truth today.

  1. I also like this song. His last CD “You Want it Darker” is very moving and very sad,
    especially the song “It Seemed the Better Way”. It was his last CD and came out
    just 3 weeks before he died. He was a great artist.
