THE GREAT EVENT... By Leonard Cohen...

El Maestro Leonard Cohen...

The Great Event

It’s going to happen very soon
The great event,
which will end the horror
Which will end the sorrow
Next Tuesday when the sun goes down
I will play the Moonlight Sonata backwards
This will reverse the effects
of the world’s mad plunge
Into suffering,
for the last 200 million years

What a lovely night that would be
What a sigh of relief,
as the senile robins
Become bright red again,
and the retired nightingales
Pick up their dusty tails,
and assert the Majesty of Creation...
