The goal (Lyrics) (AZLyrics.com)

"The Goal" lyrics
Leonard Cohen

I can't leave my house
Or answer the phone
I'm going down again
But I'm not alone

Settling at last
Accounts of the soul
This for the trash
That paid in full

As for the fall, it
Began long ago
Can't stop the rain
Can't stop the snow

I sit in my chair
I look at the street
The neighbor returns
My smile of defeat

I move with the leaves
I shine with the chrome
I'm almost alive
I'm almost at home

No one to follow
And nothing to teach
Except that the goal
Falls short of the reach

AZLyrics L Leonard Cohen Lyrics
album: "Thanks For The Dance" (2019)

Exciting to see! But I wish Book Of Longing was on there as I loved the version we heard over the montage video at the tribute concert. Will that ever be released?

Perhaps, The Hills, is a new title for the song, because I would also love to hear it!

Oh my goodness...now I am really excited, as I got the following press release from Sony Music Switzerland (for those who speak German...).
Damien Rice and Feist contributed to the album, Jennifer Warnes sang background vocals, Javier Mas played Leonards own guitar, Daniel Lanois contributed to the sessions, etc. etc....


Leonard Cohen war ein meisterhafter Songwriter, ein unnachahmlicher Musiker und Poet. In seiner über sechs Dekaden andauernden Karriere berührte sein Schaffen das Leben von Millionen – und tut dies bis heute. Mit über 23 Millionen Alben weltweit hatte Cohen einen immensen Einfluss auf die musikalische Nachwelt, der nun posthum nachhallt. Am 20. September wird mit dem Track „The Goal“ Cohens musikalischer Nachlass angekündigt – es ist die erste Vorabmusik aus dem brandneuen Album „Thanks For The Dance“, das am 22. November erscheint.

Der Longplayer enthält Aufnahmen, die aus der Zeit vor Leonard Cohens Tod im November 2016 stammen und nun zur Veröffentlichung kommen. Sieben Monate nach dem Tod seines Vaters zog sich Adam Cohen in eine umgebaute Garage in seinem Hinterhof in der Nähe von Leonards Haus zurück, um wieder mit seinem Vater zusammenzuarbeiten und in Gesellschaft seiner Stimme zu sein. Von ihrer vorherigen Zusammenarbeit bei „You Want It Darker“ blieben einige musikalische Skizzen übrig, oftmals nur Gesang. Leonard hatte seinen Sohn gebeten, diese Arbeiten zum Abschluss zu bringen.

Das bemerkenswerte neue Album entstand an einer Vielzahl von Orten. Javier Mas, der große spanische Laudist, der Leonard während seiner achtjährigen Tournee auf der Bühne begleitet hatte, flog von Barcelona nach Los Angeles, um den Geist des Künstlers auf Leonards eigener Gitarre einzufangen. In Berlin lud Adam bei der Musikveranstaltung „People Festival“ einige Freunde und Mitstreiter ein, an dem Album mitzuwirken. Damien Rice und Leslie Feist sangen. Richard Reed Parry von Arcade Fire spielte Bass. Bryce Dessner von The National spielte Gitarre, Komponist Dustin O’Halloran ist am Klavier zu hören. Der Berliner Chor Cantus Domus sang und das S t a r g a z e Orchester spielte. In Montreal schaute der berühmte Produzent Daniel Lanois bei den Sessions vorbei und steuerte auf wunderbare Weise seine spärlichen Arrangements bei. Der Shaar Hashomayim-Chor, der einen so wichtigen Teil der Entstehung des Sounds des letzten Albums spielte, trug zu einem Song bei, und Patrick Watson brachte sein unnachahmliches Talent als Koproduzent in einen Song ein. Zurück in Los Angeles sang Jennifer Warnes, eine der Hüterinnen von Leonards kreativer Flamme, Background Vocals, Beck spielte Gitarre und Maultrommel. Michael Chaves, der das Album „You Want It Darker“ so elegant aufgenommen und abgemischt hatte, übernahm das Engineering und Abmischen.

„The Goal“ lässt einen dabei erstmalig eintauchen in das angekündigte Album, bei dem es sich also wahrhaft um eine Verlängerung des Schaffens eines großen, unvergessenen Leonard Cohen handelt."

This is all very moving. Love the album title and adore The Goal.

So delighted Happens to the Heart is on the album. That poem blew me away.
