"Heart With No Companion" as written by and Leonard Cohen....
And I greet you from the other side
Of sorrow and despair
With that love so vast and shattered
It will reach you everywhere

And I sing this for the captain
Whose ship has not been built
For the mother in confusion
Her cradle still unfilled
For the heart with no companion
For the soul without a king
For the prima ballerina
Who cannot dance to anything

Through the days of shame that are coming
Through the night of wild distress
Though your promise counts for nothing
You must keep it nonetheless

You must keep it for the captain
Whose ship has not been built
For the mother in confusion
Her cradle still unfilled
For the heart with no companion
For the soul without a king
For the prima ballerina
Who cannot dance to anything

And I greet you from the other side
Of sorrow and despair
With that love so vast and shattered
It will reach you everywhere
