talking so brave and so sweet

How old were you when you first met Cohen? I was sixteen. He wasn’t my first love, but he has been one of the most enduring. Words that bruise you and a voice the bleeds like razor blades. I still like to listen to him when the rain is falling, when the world is weeping and everything is being washed clean.

It’s no surprise Cohen’s songs are fodder for all artists. He has been covered so many times, and while some of the covers are wonderful, to me the essence of the man is often missing. I think Del Rey captures him completely. She exists in the same melancholy beauty….a voice that talks so bravely and sweet
