I could say no to the song. She would ask me why. I would say that I thought the lyrics were inappropriate. She would ask why, then I would either have to explain the metaphor, or choose NOT to explain, which would then just make her feel confused, and perhaps even ashamed.

Lyricists, often a forgotten footnote, breathe life and meaning into a melody. It is the lyrics that tie the emotion of both the music and the singer entrusted to it, to deliver a message that can touch our hearts, something few can rarely accomplish.

It is now 2012, and Leonard Cohen is yet again going out on tour. I have not again seen him since that last day, in 1988, in Athens, but I know he remains very much the same man I met, and hung out with, for three days so very long ago, when we were both so very much younger.

Music, in general, might be missing its lyrical heroes. Who are our real poets in 2011? With Occupy Wall Street and the recession and the slipping middle class, it seems like the right time for a new icon to emerge. One that speaks more directly to us, without hiding.
