Dance Me To The End Of Love

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Leonard Cohen wrote this song in 1984. These lyrics came to him when he learned of a practice during the holocaust where inmates had to play classical music while their fellow prisoners were being killed and burnt. It made me reflect on the state of the human mind. The words chosen to make this song have so many shades of emotions, so many meanings.

Here are the lines that move me the most:

Dance me to your beauty
With a burning violin
Dance me through the panic
Till I’m gathered safely in
Touch me with your naked hand
Or touch me with your glove
Dance me to the end of love

It made me think about the meaning of resilience.
