There was a time I would have played
Leonard Cohen till break of day.
Famous Blue Raincoat fifty times
to trouble more my troubled mind.
A voice so mournful it confides:
I have been with you to the dark side.
We are both prisoners on the dark side.
Furthermore, I hear him say,
tomorrow won’t be a better day.
It may not be a better day.
I pour the wine a little after late,
reach for Songs of Love and Hate.
