“[My life] doesn’t have many events, so the song has to come out of some other place. It’s not an event and it’s not a message, it’s another kind of colour.” Leonard Cohen

My life seems empty. I’m not saying this in any sense of despair. I mean the quality is empty. It doesn’t have many events, so the song has to come out of some other place. It’s not an event and it’s not a message, it’s another kind of colour.quotedown2
