Video: Leonard Cohen Performs Amen – Ghent 2012

Tell me again
When I’ve been to the river
And I’ve taken the edge off my thirst
Tell me again
We’re alone & I’m listening
I’m listening so hard that it hurts
Tell me again
When I’m clean and I’m sober
Tell me again
When I’ve seen through the horror
Tell me again
Tell me over and over
Tell me you want me then
Amen

Amen is a track from Cohen’s new album, Old Ideas.  The 2012 Leonard Cohen Old Ideas World Tour is what is conventionally called “a tour in support of the new album.” Given the shift in the economic model of music industry, a more accurate phrasing might well be “an album issued in support of the forthcoming tour.” Regardless, I am surprised to find myself much more appreciative of this song after watching a recording of a live performance than when I simply heard it on my iPhone.
