Hallelujah by Leonard Cohen

When he was about 60 Leonard Cohen (LC) decided to withdraw from public life and spend a long time in a Zen monastery in California. Meanwhile, somewhere else, his accountant was stealthily removing his earthly possessions, perhaps trying to help & foster LC’s spiritual quest. Who knows, but coming back from deep meditative bliss LC has had the courtesy of giving his fans a few more years of his presence, his voice, his hat…and the delicious Webb Sisters. He is now back on tour

“I did my best, it wasn’t much
I couldn’t feel, so I tried to touch
I’ve told the truth, I didn’t come to fool you
And even though it all went wrong
I’ll stand before the Lord of Song
With nothing on my tongue but Hallelujah”
