For The Duchess On Our Tenth Wedding Anniversary: Leonard Cohen’s Brilliant Performance Of “Coming Back To You”


I looked for you in everyone
And they called me on that too
I lived alone but I was only
Coming back to you

The Duchess and I both adore Leonard Cohen, but our preferences vary. She has long enamored of Dance Me To The End Of Love as her personal favorite while favor the more obscure Do I Have To Dance All Night. So, I was puzzled about how to reconcile these differences — until I ran across this lovely performance of  Coming Back To You by Leonard Cohen.1

And, indeed, Penny, I’m still coming back to you
