The Monk From The Mountain of Sorrow lyric video

Lyric videos seem to be a thing nowadays, presumably so that something shows when you’re looking at them on Facebook during a meeting with the sound off, pretending it’s an important email.

This song was on All The Time In Heaven. I’d written it years earlier of course, and at first I was a little coy about saying it was ‘about’ Leonard Cohen – after all it’s very indirect. But all the imagery really was drawn from what I know of him from the Greek island of Hydra to the Zen monastery on Mt Baldy, so I’m happy to say it now. I feel like I’ve said a lot about him since he passed away so this will be the last.

As always, if you like it, please share with someone else who might.
