  • leonard cohen'in popular problems albümünün sağlam şarkılarından:
    "the party's over / but ı've landed on my feet / ı'll be standing on the corner / where there used to be a street"
  • popular problems albümündeki tek leonard cohen/anjani thomas ortak çalışması.

    hazır itunes'dan albümün dijital bookleti de taze düşmüşken, sözlerini yazalım.

    ı used to be your favorite drunk
    good for one more laugh
    then we both ran out of luck
    luck was all we ever had
    you put on a uniform
    to fight the civil war
    you looked so good ı didn't care
    what side you're fighting for

    ıt wasn't all that easy
    when you up and walked away
    but ı'll save that little story
    for another rainy day
    ı know the burden's heavy
    as you wheel it through the night
    some people say it's empty
    but that don't mean it's light

    you left me with the dishes
    and a baby in the bath
    you're tight with the militias
    you wear their camouflage
    you always said we're equal
    so let me march with you
    just an extra in the sequel
    to the old red white and blue

    baby don't ignore me
    we were smokers we were friends
    forget that tired story
    of betrayal and revenge
    ı see the ghost of culture
    with numbers on his wrist
    salute some new conclusion
    which all of us have missed

    ı cried for you this morning
    and ı'll cry for you again
    but ı'm not in charge of sorrow
    so please don't ask me when
    there may be wine and roses
    and magnums of champagne
    but we'll never no we'll never
    ever be that drunk again

    the party's over
    but ı've landed on my feet
    ı'll be standing on this corner
    where there used to be a street
  • şarkının ilk 2 dakika 15 saniyesini tom waits yazmış. sonrasında armoni değişimiyle gelen nakarat için nick cave pj'den ricacı olmuş.

    şarkı ortaya çıkınca "kim okur, kim okur" demişler, leonard cohen'e söyletmişler.

    ben hayatımda bu kadar underrated bir şarkı daha görmedim. sağda solda yalan dolan hikaye sıkıp millet dinlesin diye yardırıyordum 2 sene önce, sonra vazgeçtim.
