Editor's comments:

Leonard Cohen has released yet another enchanting single, a song titled "The Darkness" which will be included on his forthcoming album, “Old Ideas” (set for release on January 30th, 2012).

The old-style instrumentals and the witty lyrics make this song a lovely track, one of the main attractions of the album.

Leonard Cohen – The Darkness Lyrics

I caught the darkness, it was drinking from your cup
I caught the darkness drinking from your cup
I said is this contagious?
You said just drink it up.

I said is this contagious
She said just drink it up
I got no future,
I know my days are few
The presence not the pleasant
Just a lot of things to do
I thought the past would last me
But the darkness got that too

I shoulda seen it coming
It was right behind your eyes
You were young ant it was summer
I just had to take a dive

When I knew was easy, the darkness was the price.
I don’t smoke no cigarette, I don’t drink no alcohol
I ain’t had much loving yet
But that’s always been your call
Hey I don’t miss it baby
I got no taste for anything at all

I used to love the rainbow
And I used to love the view
Another early morning, I’d pretend that it was you
But I caught the darkness baby
And I got it worse than you

I caught the darkness, it was drinking from your cup
I caught the darkness drinking from your cup
I said is this contagious?
You said just drink it up.
