Tower Of Song Poem by Leonard Cohen

Tower Of Song

Rating: 3.6


Well my friends are gone and my hair is grey
I ache in the places where I used to play
And I'm crazy for love but I'm not coming on
I'm just paying my rent every day
Oh in the Tower of Song

The master songwriter with a voice so sensual and sometimes so dark. I see his name and I flock to see what he has to say- yes flock although I am just one person I am actually many! ! !

This is only the first stanza of a many stanzaed song/poem by Cohen...you may read TOS in its entirety by googling for the lyrics...and you can hear Cohen sing the song in various recordings on you tube dot com
