Something Wonderful: Dance Me to the End of Love

Dance me to the children who are asking to be born
Dance me through the curtains that our kisses have outworn
Raise a tent of shelter now, though every thread is torn
Dance me to the end of love

Dance me to your beauty with a burning violin
Dance me through the panic till I'm gathered safely in
Touch me with your naked hand or touch me with your glove
Dance me to the end of love

A great poet with a voice that was in harmony with the lyrics. I shall miss the old misanthrope, his raw analyis of the human condition was brutal, but beneath it all a message of love. RIP and thank God for the tecnology that will ensure his eternal life.

I like this video of it much better.

The Scent of a Woman. That was as good as movies get, which was pretty damn good.

Actually I prefer the version Cohen released as it speaks to the lyrics: enduring love.
