20040823_140439_0022"It’s four in the morning, the end of december
I’m writing you now just to see if you’re better
New york is cold, but I like where I’m living
There’s music on clinton street all through the evening."

"lyrics so I don't eat my foot"? what a catagory!

Have you run in to much discussion of the fameous blue raincoat lyrics? I feel like I've only heard half a conversation when I listen to it, and I like what I've heard, but I can't quite figure it all out.

i've read a number of cohen biographies but i forget everything i read.

so i'm no help.

i do recall cohen saying the song was meant to have many interpretations..

I can sure see that. Although one could say that about a whole lot of his songs. :-)

Forgetting what you read can help keep a low book buying budget. You just recirculate the books you have.
