I had a good cry over this one. Somehow I never got around to missing him until I saw this. As a teen I obnoxiously memorized his poems and when drunk or high enough, would recite them. The day I got married I snuck into the bathroom and said, “good-bye Leonard, I’ll never be with you now…” (dramatic huh?) And my very good friend who died last year told me, “He’s gone. He was only ten years older than me. Do I only have ten more years?” and we agreed we’d take ten more if we could be Lenard Cohen.
“Happens To The Heart” is the first official single from the folk legend’s last original and unreleased album, Thanks For The Dance, which has been reimagined for film by award-winning director Daniel Askill.
