Note: There is a short visual interruption near the first when an audience member is seated in front of the camera but this resolves quickly and the remainder of the video is clear of such distractions. “Thank you, music lovers” is Mr Cohen’s acknowledgement for the applause following his keyboard solo. The end of the song features a sweetly extended “Do Dum Dum Dum, De Do Dum Dum” refrain sung by the backup singers while Leonard pleads “Don’t stop.”

Q: Will Leonard Cohen find any consolation in knowing that, long after he is gone, we will still hear him speaking to us “sweetly / from a window / in the Tower of Song?” Leonard Cohen: “None whatsoever.”

None whatsoever. It’s cold consolation to know that people may still be listening to my voice and songs long after I’m gone. ‘Cold’ – or no consolation at all!quotedown2

Now I bid you farewell, I don’t know when I’ll be back
