Mister, here's a story.
Bartender, please!
Set me up another,
'Cause I'm here to bleed.
Been down in the dungeons.
Been high on the plains.
Been everywhere but home-
I'll not return again.

How can you lose what was never there?
I know, I know - I don't care.
You said the words were more than you could bear.
I know, I know - I just don't care.

Someone play that sad song!
Cohen knows my name.
The two of us - and you, Bartender.
Play that song again!

Mr. Cohen and me, and you, Bartender.
Tender bartender.

    General CommentSounds like the story of a guy drowning his sorrows. It kind of shows how sometimes we don't want advice, but just want someone to listen to us.

    General CommentDoes *Lenard Cohen know his name? Or maybe Mr. Cohen is a guy he is playing D&D with, and they are in a tavern where he is talking about an amulet that he failed to retrieve because it wasn't in the locations he was looking.

    Been down in the dungeons.
    Been high on the plains.
    Been everywhere but home-
    How can you lose what was never there?

    That is it! The amulet is at his house!
