I was driving back from the dump and wave of emotion passed over me. Like my heart had just been puree'd. I don't know why, I'm not in a relationship, haven't been for a while. Yet that feeling you get when you are first dumped just passed over me. Maybe it's empathy for friends. Maybe a mental fluke.

But right then, a beautiful cover of a wonderful Leonard Cohen song came on the air and so matched the feeling, yet drove it away:

Dance me to your beauty with a burning violin
Dance me through the panic 'til I'm gathered safely in
Lift me like an olive branch and be my homeward dove
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love

Oh let me see your beauty when the witnesses are gone
Let me feel you moving like they do in Babylon
Show me slowly what I only know the limits of
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love

Dance me to the wedding now, dance me on and on
Dance me very tenderly and dance me very long
We're both of us beneath our love, we're both of us above
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love

Dance me to the children who are asking to be born
Dance me through the curtains that our kisses have outworn
Raise a tent of shelter now, though every thread is torn
Dance me to the end of love

Dance me to your beauty with a burning violin
Dance me through the panic till I'm gathered safely in
Touch me with your naked hand or touch me with your glove
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love

Why is it Leonard Cohen always manages to rock my world in his understated way?
