NIGHTINGALE
Dedicated to Carl Anderson (1945-2004)
Music by Leonard Cohen and Anjani Thomas, lyrics by Leonard Cohen

I built my house beside the wood
So I could hear you singing,
And it was sweet and it was good
And love was all beginning.

Fare thee well, my nightingale.
'Twas long ago I found you,
Now all your songs of beauty fail,
The forest closes 'round you.

The sun goes down behind a veil,
'Tis now that you would call me,
So rest in peace, my nightingale,
Beneath your branch of holly.

Fare thee well, my nightingale.
I lived but to be near you.
Tho' you are singing somewhere still
I can no longer hear you.

An excellent cover version of this song was recorded by Shearwater (Vancouver Island) Tammy Fassaert on vocals
