I’ve been listening
to all the dissention.
I’ve been listening
to all the pain.

And I feel that no matter
what I do for you,
it’s going to come back again.
But I think that I can heal it,
but I think that I can heal it,
I’m a fool, but I think I can heal it
with this song.

"Minute Prologue," a song by Leonard Cohen from his album Live Songs.

How sweet time feels
when it’s too late

and you don’t have to follow
her swinging hips

all the way into
your dying imagination

"Sweet Time," a poem by Leonard Cohen from his book Book of Longing.

Had to go crazy to love you
Had to go down to the pit
Had to do time in the tower
Begging my crazy to quit


Had to go crazy to love you
You who were never the one
Whom I chased through the souvenir heartache
Her braids and her blouse all undone…

From “Crazy To Love You,” a song by Leonard Cohen with music by Anjani Thomas from Cohen’s album Old Ideas.
