    Leonard Cohen's lyrics are like bitter honey. You can truly tell he was a poet, he's got a way with words that is unsurpassed by anything I've ever heard before.

    Further to my Shout below, if you like great singer/songwriters with truly meaningful and well-constructed lyrics, click on my NoMoreSongs icon to the left and play my NoMoreSongs radio, containing Leonard Cohen, Joni Mitchell, Janis Ian, Harry Chapin, Julie Covington (singing Pete Atkin and Clive James songs) and so many more, especially Leonard Cohen, who I truly adore and emulate.

    I don't think even Dylan has ever reach this height of lyrical mastery. Probably the greatest song in terms of lyrics? Can't think of anything that matches it

    I love his cosy, inviting way of singing, his golden voice emerging from the flames of some mountain cabin, seducing you with his visions...

    If I had to listen to just one song for the rest of my life, the song would be this. Without a doubt.

    In a folk club somebody introduced their version of an LC song by saying "Here is a poem by Leonard Cohen, set to one of his three tunes."
