      Trying to make sense of lyrics is very difficult. Often the writer isn't sure where the song came from. Blame "the Muse".

      I recall reading an interview once with a musician. The interviewer was asking a very deep question about some lyrics, how they seemed to invoke Jungian archetypes or something like that ..

      The musician said: Well, you guys come up with that stuff, I just write songs.

      Knowing Cohen and the way he agonizes over lyrics, I'm not sure if his lyrics can be decoded.

      Like a drunk in a midnight choir.
