I've heard this song before but never really say and listened to it. It takes a bit ok old testament knowledge to figure out but man - when I did -

Leonard Cohen is truly one of a very very few -
who can write a song that's beautiful no matter who sings it.
It sings itself sister.
This is almost perfect:

He's also given us this:

He sank beneath your wisdom like a stone...

I love her voice so completely.

@NG -- is it just me or does kd look like a young Wayne Newton in that video?
Watch this version. Harmonies Rock.

Leonard Cohen was in the audience for this kd performance and he was really impressed by it:

Affair song? Can you explain this a little more? I have always liked the song. But never got affair from it. I've been reading what other people get from the song but not once was affair mentioned.

I love when a song can be taken so many different ways.
