Would you take someone serious and date them if they didn’t like Leonard Cohen and his music?
There is no God in Heaven and there is no Hell below So says the great professor of all there is to know But I've had the invitation that a sinner can't refuse And it's almost like salvation, it's almost like the blues
Almost like the blues
Will you marry me?
Democracy is coming to the USA
It's coming through a hole in the air From those nights in Tiananmen Square It's coming from the feel That this ain't exactly real Or it's real, but it ain't exactly there From the wars against disorder From the sirens night and day From the fires of the homeless From the ashes of the gay Democracy is coming to the USA
It's coming through a crack in the wall On a visionary flood of alcohol From the staggering account Of the Sermon on the Mount Which I don't pretend to understand at all It's coming from the silence On the dock of the bay, From the brave, the bold, the battered Heart of Chevrolet Democracy is coming to the USA
Whatever you think of Tom he was always attached to street people in a good way and never pompous. Whether you were a drunk or CEO he had a way to make individuals listen and forget problems as he had more. He'd talk to you and was pretty straight up.

My "friend" doesn't know who Tom Waits is, either... You will have to "waits" until she listens to the song to express her opinion...
Taralyn: NOT KNOW LEONARD COHEN??? Maybe you've heard Hallelujah or Closing Time?? He wasnt mainstream but that didn't matter; he was Leonard Cohen.
“I've heard people say Cohen's voice is lame, because he does not show off or belt or keep himself constrained to precise pitch. Music is about more than showmanship and superficiality, it is? about soul, and feeling, and love. His voice is so revealing, and has an intimate beauty to it that should never be ignored. He is a poet, his lyrics and his guitar send his message forward.”
