Tower Of Song

Well my friends are gone and my hair is grey
I ache in the places where I used to play
And I'm crazy for love but I'm not coming on
I'm just paying my rent every day
Oh in the Tower of Song

by Leonard Cohen

The master songwriter with a voice so sensual and sometimes so dark. I see his name and I flock to see what he has to say- yes flock although I am just one person I am actually many! ! !
This is only the first stanza of a many stanzaed song/poem by Cohen...you may read TOS in its entirety by googling for the lyrics...and you can hear Cohen sing the song in various recordings on you tube dot com
Poem is in concise but theme is great. Beautiful poem.
