This song, treaty, is the second track in Leonard Cohen’s You want it darker album which was released in 2016. I have not listened to all the track because I stumbled on it in a friend’s tweet on Wednesday. As is my fond routine, I delved into searching for the song.
To me it didn’t sound like a song when the song played, it’s gentle and soothing instrumentals oozing out of the bare speaker in my android device, for about 50 seconds I immediately concluded that it was not a song but maybe spoken word poetry. I waited and it gradually turned out to be a song. It’s quite an unusual kind of song I you ask me.
But, I will not dismiss, for anything, it’s true and unadulterated nature. You have to listen to Treaty by Leonard Cohen. In the song, he presents a case: your love and my love should have a treaty. That way, you don’t run away with mine. Well, the former is my opinion.
Do you think it is necessary to get a treaty in a relationship today? That’s what we get to talk about today. I’m Abuh Monday Eneojo. I will be your host for Daily Wisdom Words Music Prompt.
