"LC" as written by and Mirah Yom Tov Zeitlyn....
We married him on fire
Like the nuns who married god
Then we jumped out of the airplane
& trusted we would fall
Then we traveled through the mountains
With our bodies weighted down
By the perfect lovely vision
In the absence of all sound

Though he was a faithful tailor
Our deeds we must confess
We loved so many others
Despite our wedding dress
So when the lace snagged on the fender
Of the car he left to drive
When we took it on a bender
When we took it for a ride

We wound up thirsty in this jail cell
But we've heard he said it here
To excavate this holy well
& pour it crystal clear
& we filled our cup with silence
& the words who keep in time
With the song that he will sing us
As forgiveness for our crime

Well, love, it's true you're golden throated
& your history is long
& you've had so many lovely creatures
Occupy your songs
So may we take you to the altar
We'll feed you bread & wine
& be swimming in the fountain with you
Till the end of time

    General CommentA lovely tribute to Leonard Cohen, using imagery fans of his will find very familiar.
