so i was on my way to work a couple months ago and heard this song play. i had no idea who was singing until the announcer, well, announced it.
now, i am not a fan of leonard cohen's singing voice, but i have always been a fan of his poetry. in fact, one of my all time favourite collections is called 15 canadian poets x 2. i used to have a copy of it, from a school course, but somewhere along the way got rid of it, among other treasures, and will eventually buy another copy.
so it shouldn't really surprise me that this song, by leonard's son adam, captured my attention.
the lyrics are sublime
and, of course, i have already learned to play my own version of it on the guitar
