Some of the best lyrics ever written

Sorry Buckley fans but Cohen really is the man

Jeff Buckley was better at singing it though

Cohen outshines Buckley by a mile on this

My number one pick

Definitely my favorite Cohen song. The lyrics are a bit cryptic, but it takes you on a journey.

Should be in the top ten!

So hard to choose- but Teachers, Who By Fire, Famous Blue Rain Coat and Wating for a mirical come close.

Poetic masterpiece.
"You strike my side by accident
as you go down for your gold.
The cripple here that you clothe and feed
is neither starved nor cold;

not at the centre, the centre of the world."

My favorite Cohen song.
