Of all the things that are wrong with the world right now, Leonard Cohen’s heartening and soulful voice was everything that made it seem alright. And now that we’ve lost this legend, we have nothing but his beautiful music and lyrics to remember him by and get through the days hoping, against hope that music and feelings like these prevail.



Hey, Leonard, that’s no way to say goodbye. But, rest in peace, wherever you are.



1. Hallelujah


Favourite Lyrics: “You say I took the name in vain. I don't even know the name. But if I did, well really, what's it to you?”



2. Suzanne


Best Lyrics: “That you've always been her lover and you want to travel with her. And you want to travel blind. And you know that she will trust you for you've touched her perfect body with your mind.”



3. Dance Me To The End Of Love


Best Lyrics: “Dance me to the wedding now, dance me on and on. Dance me very tenderly and dance me very long. We're both of us beneath our love, we're both of us above.”



4. So Long, Marianne


Best Lyrics: “For now I need your hidden love. I'm cold as a new razor blade. You left when I told you I was curious, I never said that I was brave.”



5. Hey, That’s No Way To Say Goodbye


Best Lyrics: “I'm not looking for another as I wander in my time, walk me to the corner, our steps will always rhyme. You know my love goes with you as your love stays with me, it's just the way it changes, like the shoreline and the sea. but let's not talk of love or chains and things we can't untie…”



6. Joan of Arc


Best Lyrics: “I saw her wince, I saw her cry, I saw the glory in her eye. Myself I long for love and light. But must it come so cruel, and oh so bright?”



7. Famous Blue Raincoat


Best Lyrics: “If you ever come by here, for Jane or for me, your enemy is sleeping, and his woman is free. Yes, and thanks, for the trouble you took from her eyes. I thought it was there for good so I never tried.”



8. Take This Waltz


Best Lyrics: “And I'll dance with you in Vienna. I'll be wearing a river's disguise. The hyacinth wild on my shoulder, my mouth on the dew of your thighs.”



9. If It Be Your Will


Best Lyrics: “If it be your will that I speak no more and my voice be still, as it was before…”



10. Avalanche


Best Lyrics: “When I am on a pedestal, you did not raise me there. Your laws do not compel me to kneel grotesque and bare.”



11. Coming Back To You


Best Lyrics: “I looked for you in everyone and they called me on that too. I lived alone but I was only coming back to you.”



12. Lover, Lover, Lover


Best Lyrics: “"I locked you in this body. I meant it as a kind of trial. You can use it for a weapon, or to make some woman smile.”


13. Ain’t No Cure For Love


Best Lyrics: “I need to see you naked in your body and your thought. I've got you like a habit and I'll never get enough.”



14. Winter Lady


Best Lyrics: “Trav'ling lady, stay awhile until the night is over. I'm just a station on your way, I know I'm not your lover.”



15. Love Calls You By Your Name


Best Lyrics: “You thought that it could never happen to all the people that you became, your body lost in legend, the beast so very tame.”
