  • "thanks for the trouble you took from her eyes, I thought it was there for good, so I never tried" - amazing song!
  • It's like his voice is the extension of his soul. Can't get any better.
  • Love it.....
  • "... с приветствием, Вас помнящий всегда знакомый Ваш, Сергей Есенин."
  • u ruined my night :(
  • so deep and sad.Leonard always a genius <3
