“It’s about you & me” Democracy Closes 2009 Leonard Cohen US Tour – San Jose

I’m sentimental, if you know what I mean
I love the country but I can’t stand the scene
And I’m neither left or right
I’m just staying home tonight
Getting lost in that hopeless little screen
But I’m stubborn as those garbage bags
That Time cannot decay
I’m junk but I’m still holding up
This little wild bouquet
Democracy is coming to the USA

Democracy Is Coming – 2009 Tour Finale

“Democracy,” an especially popular feature of concerts earlier in the Leonard Cohen World Tour, had been absent for some time but was resurrected as the final song of the final US concert. Albert Noonan’s well-shot video includes the introduction to the song, the performance itself, and Leonard Cohen’s closing words of the show.
