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 -
If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck - it's not a fluffy pink unicorn squirting liquid rainbows, complete with pots of gold out of it's ass.

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 that song. Here's my favorite version:
I love her voice so completely.

....it's the Shrek song.......AND the song that 40(ish)% of people auditioning for a musical use for their audition piece. Because of those reasons, I have to admit that I have NEVER actually listened to the lyrics.
@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.
