about

Moonfall is a rare recording. Three years in the making, it was recorded in multiple 'environments' using a single track recording device to track each part. Then it was beautifully assembled by producer Jake Perrine. A feat of composing by Cohen and a magic trick by Jake - Moonfall is the most 'yin' record of Cohen's career - comprised of heart, twilight and subtle sounds. [ hint* best on headphones! ]

Track Name: Nothing at All
Nothing at All
music & lyrics by Cohen
newsuperheros music bmi

////////////////////////////////////////////////

still we stare & still we take
another day into my arms again

here we sleep & here we wake
you say you know the difference

definitions pouring over me
I can’t see anything at all

you say I’m inside myself
I say nothing at all

infinity leaps from every stream of passage
I stand by
still I try to stand

in through this door
I see something more
I feel myself falling

it’s not about the weight
not about anything at all

here we sleep & here we wake
you say you know the difference

/////////////////////////////////////////////////////

all that you say you’re going to be
when the light of the moon finally falls on you

now your time has come
& you’re just pretending you are the only one
in these days full of strangers
endless night .. endless night
it’s a way to take your storm
& just throw your strength & sight

now I find
there’s a new day about to come
now I find
there is a new way & I’m done

you can take it
take it or leave it
but you might not have anything when the day is done
it’s alright
you don’t need anything.. anyway
& I’m not your sun

mother, are you going to save me?
well you’re going to find that there is no-one here to save
I say father, are you going to rescue me?
when I’ve become the worlds only slave?

now I find
there’s a new day about to come
now I find
there a new way & I’m done


licorice tea & entropy
you’ve got your heart
a stone, and the sea
will you float?
when the rain comes down
& you have to pay for what is left of your dream?

the radio is half as loud
& the lights are always too bright
the soul flies to another
even torn ..it finds its flight

now I find
it’s a new day about to come
now I find
it’s a new day & I’m done

& you’re the one I choose now..

all that you say you’re going to be
when the light of the moon finally falls on you

Track Name: Lose Ourselves
Lose Ourselves
music & lyrics by Cohen
newsuperheros music bmi

////////////////////////////////////////////////////

Tell me your name but don’t say it twice
‘cause I want to hear what you are really trying to say

I see you there beneath my window
& I don’t know where we’re really going to go
but something tells me
everywhere is where you’ve been & what you know

if you’ve ever needed someone
in this half forgotten town
I have held your heart inside me
when the snow kept falling down
now the summer winds are coming
& the morning sky is bright
I will hold you if you find me
& we’ll lose ourselves, lose ourselves tonight

Its been a long time
since you radiate, shift the weight
& let it all go…

Maybe the time is now - maybe now’s the time
maybe not maybe .. maybe not maybe

if you ever needed someone
In this half forgotten town
I have held your heart inside me
When the snow kept falling down
Now the summer winds are coming
& the morning sky is bright
I will hold you if you find me
& we’ll lose ourselves, lose ourselves
tonight…

Track Name: Love Song
Love Song
music & lyrics by Cohen
newsuperheros music bmi

//////////////////////////////////////////

my river is wide
my soul is vast
you can float on my stream
your sail you can cast

for my heart is on fire
I drown while it burns
I give you my world
while it still turns

I was raised by the angels
in an age full of death
though the gods have all kissed me
only you give me breath

I’m warmed by your sun
and cooled by your light
you cut all the stars
out of the stormy night

so my river is wide
my soul is vast
you can float on my stream
your sail you can cast

Track Name: Eyes Like Wine
Eyes Like Wine
music & lyrics by Cohen
newsuperheros music bmi

///////////////////////////////////////

eyes like wine
keep me half awake
its where I’ll take the next breath slowly

eyes like
keep my half asleep
it’s where we’ll meet
& dance so wholely

eyes like wine
keep me half awake

eyes like
keep my half asleep

it’s where we’ll meet…

you are all you find beautiful.

Track Name: Swim
Swim
music & lyrics by Cohen
newsuperheros music bmi

////////////////////////////////////////////

I know you’re exactly like me
but I don’t know how I can swim in your sea

it seems there’s enough room here
if I throw away everything I fear

there is always a way to run
though you think that you’re valiant
shining like the sun

you’re hiding out in a once dark place
where you fall asleep
forget her face

I miss the way we used to be
one hundred hours of no use
& not care

it seemed we’d always have time
we’d be together, make new rhymes

now I don’t know how much I can hear
when you say without a sound:
love’s right here now

I fly like a bird looking out
falling down through a once blue cloud

sa la sa la sa la

I come from the center of a soul
that has been bore out
has a great big hole

I know I can hide it well
everything is alright
you are under my spell

but now I don’t know how much I can hear
when you say without a sound:
love’s right here

you know some days I’d be ok
if I could find you when I needed to
& not wait

sa la sa la sa la

I’ll hold a place in me
where no-one lives but you
& you’re free
