    One of the last songs of LEONARD COHEN before his death. May he always [R.I.P]. He's saying I'am here My Lord, but I'm out of the game if you are a Dealer wanting to make any deal concerning my soul. But if you are a Healer, meaning if God is. Then ''it means i'am broken and lame'' in front of you Lord. ''If Thine is the glory, then mine must be the shame''. Anotherwords throughout the song he is still willing to struggle,fight and argue with God for the life of his soul. All the while feeling it's not fair if God gets all the glory and he gets all the shame and guilt by all the sins committed in the past and throughout his life. I guess he want's God to take some responsibility? For wrongdoings in this song ''You Want It Darker'' that is also a song for the times in our time that ''flickered the flame'' of a warning little towards the dark side in reminder of PLSAMS 137 when Rabbi Hier inanugarl speech prayer touched all of us throughout the world on The Inauguration of our President Donald J. Trump of the U.S of America who is also backed up by prayers to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ to watch over all of us.

    I am thinking about it...
    Ultimately The Source God ... is of LIGHT LOVE and DIVINE POWER ... the Dark and the Light are all a part of CREATION ... What does Hieneni mean?

    More later...

    How could he know that he would perish, after a fall two weeks after he performed this song? Was he a biblical messenger? In the song you can hear Kol Nidre, the song for the dead in Hebrew. RIP
