Re: Where did Leonard take you - your story

For me - My intro to Leonard was as a little girl listening to Suzanne (covers).... As an adult rediscovered him twice...at age 19, a boyfriend who was into him...but then in my 30s, after hearing Buckley's Hallelujah, giving me the inspiration to look further into Cohen. An oh my goodness - his wor...

Re: The Darker Album and the Songs

Just listened to this twice through....of course I just love it and am extremely moved....however I get a "sense" of a man moving away from faith...from the idea of truth ...the song where hes "traveling light", the song where he speaks of thinking it sounded like the truth but its not the truth any...

Re: Title song 'You Want It Darker' now on YouTube and Spotify etc

Yep - as I said, I know I could be totally wrong - and I know that Leonard Cohen has always been involved with and inspired by his Jewish heritage/faith...(love how he incorporates the Old Testament as well into his songs!) And also that he is into Zen Buddhism...but still, I'm just saying "if" it h...

coming back to you

Hi everyone!

Does anyone else see this as a song about turning back to God? Especially the stanza about all the others who put aside their pride and therefore get chosen...

Thanks!

Re: Ballad of the Absent Mare

I see this is an old thread! But I just discovered this song....listening to it, I thought of the bible story of the lost sheep....and God searching for his lost one.....and never giving up....and pulling her back with love not a whip....what an amazing song.....

Re: Theology of Leonard Cohen

quoting from another poster - "Many people have been lately wishing that Cohen has converted more to this or that direction, and it is easy to make various interpretations. I can see both Jewish and Christian influences, not to mention those obvious Zen paradoxes and Muslim spices. But what about it...

Re: nevermind?

and to follow on from that - the line about them writing their memories/the stories (the gospels), and the stanza where he says he couldn't kill, he couldn't hate - its like in all the wretchedness there is some goodness lurking in this world. makes me think of the movie "calvary" actually - anyone ...

Re: nevermind?

I kinda see christian themes - this idea that goodness and God are still "lurking" - even though we all tried to kill him (Jesus on the cross), even though evil is everywhere - he still is among us.
