"Like a bird on the wire
Like a drunk in a midnight choir
I have tried, in my way, to be free."

No other artist's music felt or sounded like Leonard Cohen's. Yet his work resonated across generations. Canada and the world will miss him.

Rest in piece Mr. Cohen. You can hear the boats go by. You can spend the night forever.
