When you listen to the lyrics Cohen wrote, you realise how alive his language is — and how much he was seeking the light. Eighty-two seems too soon an age to take a man like Leonard Cohen. But this would be to miss entirely the warmth of his words. I wrote several years ago about the song Hallelujah — more famous now in the hands of talent-show contestants, or the voice of Jeff Buckley, Bob Dylan or John Cale. Eighty drafted verses — and later there would be more, because Cohen chose to change the song for live performance. But I love its sentiment, his exploration of the tension that exists between our inner and outer lives, of how the pleasure of privacy meets the cold of isolation and longing for connection. It is a song, to me, about closeness. And I have thought of it often in the years since, in a world that seems increasingly preoccupied with surfaces, with appearance and aesthetic, and I wonder about all the secret lives beneath. Strange, then, that the most-feted Cohen lyric — the one that has appeared over and over on social media since the announcement of his death, should be about light. When I think of Cohen it is not as that famed Godfather of Gloom, it is as a man always looking for the light.
