King of misery returns from monastry with synthesizer.
Even his most optimistic fans could've been forgiven for thinking that they'd heard the last of Leonard Cohen, the most urbanely depressed of rock's elder statesmen. After all, he's just turned 67, hasn't released an album in nine years and, most pertinently, appeared to have found contentment of sorts living as a Buddhist monk in California.

I've been listening to all the dissension
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
I saw jesus on the cross on a hill called calvary
"do you hate mankind for what they done to you? "
He said, "talk of love not hate, things to do - it's getting late.
I've so little time and I'm only passing through."
Queen Victoria, my father and all his tobacco loved you
I love you too in all your forms
The slim and lovely virgin floating among German beer
The mean governess of the huge pink maps
It seems so long ago
Nancy was alone
Looking ate the Late Late show
Through a semi-precious stone
The door it opened slowly
My father he came in
I was nine years old
And he stood so tall above me
Sometimes I find I get to
Thinking of the past
We swore to each other then
Our love would surely last
I cannot follow you, my love
You cannot follow me
I am the distance you put between
All of the moments that we will be
