„The world stands out on either side
No wider than the heart is wide“
"Renascence" (1912), st. 20, Renascence and Other Poems (1917)
Kontext: The world stands out on either side
No wider than the heart is wide;
Above the world is stretched the sky, —
No higher than the soul is high.
The heart can push the sea and land
Farther away on either hand;
The soul can split the sky in two,
And let the face of God shine through.
But East and West will pinch the heart
That can not keep them pushed apart;
And he whose soul is flat — the sky
Will cave in on him by and by.
— Leonard Cohen Canadian poet and singer-songwriter 1934 - 2016

I'm Your Man (1988)
Kontext: p>I see you standing on the other side.
I don't know how the river got so wide.
I loved you, baby, way back when.
And all the bridges are burning that
We might have crossed and I feel so close to everything that we've lost.
We'll never, we'll never have to lose it again.Now I bid You farewell, I don't when I'll be back.
They're moving us tomorrow to that tower down the track.
But you'll be hearing from me, baby, long after I'm gone.
I'll speaking to you sweetly
From a window in the Tower Of Song</p

Kontext: Stirrup to stirrup and side by side
We crossed the mountains and the valleys wide.
We came to Big Muddy and we forded the flood
On the Tennessee mare and the Tennessee stud.

„(The lockout) makes no sense unless you put it in the context of a wider strategy, which is to somehow weaken Canadians' commitment to Canada Post so that ultimately, when the government gets out there to privatize it, they think they can get the public on their side“
