Tribute Song to Leonard Cohen

Postby G&T » Fri Mar 03, 2017 11:25 pm

My tribute song to Leonard Cohen can be found at YouTube: G&T - Renaissance Man.

My sincere thanks for the poetry and music he wrote,
the biblical landscape he walked,
the love, desire and faith he shared,
the inhuman generosity he was touched by and
his hand that reached out to mine through his music and poems.

Rest in peace.

The lyrics for the tribute song to Leonard Cohen:

THE RENAISSANCE MAN

If you were a soldier, I am a prisoner
If you were a prophet, I am a follower

Songs of LC from a Room of Love and Hate
With your unique poems you painted the fate
New Skin and a Ladies’ Man were not your Recent Songs
You said ”I am Your Man” and not some V Positions

From Eastern Europe to Westmount Montreal
From Saint Laurent Boulevard to Mount Royal
From messianic childhood to Hydra and Zen land
From Judy’s fundraiser to Vector Auckland

First We Take Manhattan and then we Take This Waltz
There’s a Bird on the Wire and Everybody Knows
In My Secret Life, I was a Partisan
Now I’m Travelling Light, Avalanche, Nevermind

Thank you for the Sparrows, I read it more than twice
As you compared mythologies, I’m now more wise

Dear Heather, your Future is not in Ten New Songs
So long Suzanne and Marianne, maybe you were the ones
For the renaissance man who straddles elusive border
Old Ideas and Popular Problems, You Want it Darker

From Isle of Wight to the mountains of Sinai
From LC Files to Columbia, memories are mine
From Jikan Eliezer to Irving Layton
From Aaron to Cassius, Viva and Lyon

First We Take Manhattan and then we Take This Waltz
There’s a Bird on the Wire and Everybody Knows
This Treaty (between us) will Dance Me to the End of Love
Born in Chains: Democracy, Faith is the Law (Window)

You walked here in a biblical landscape
Love, desire, faith and all the tunes on tape
You saw many nations rise and fall
Love’s the only engine for us all
Touched by inhuman generosity
These songs are my shield against the enemy
Just stretch your hand and I will reach you
but I’m not sure if I’m as ready as you (R.I.P./P.W.Y.)

First We Take Manhattan and then we Take This Waltz
There’s a Bird on the Wire and Everybody Knows
If it Be Your Will then Take This Longing
But Hallelujah, You Got Me Singing (Singing/Amen)

If you were a soldier, I am a prisoner
If you were a prophet, I am a follower

Lyrics: Jouni G
