Leonard Cohen • Moving On • 2020


In celebration of the album, NOWNESS has been collaborating with several filmmakers for their series Thanks for the Dance: Artistic Responses to Leonard Cohen, a collection of video responses to each of the album’s tracks. Friday, they shared the video for “Moving On” by Laure Prouvost and collaborator Ciarán Wood. The video is considered a tribute to one of Cohen’s favorite retreats, the Greek island of Hydra.


I loved your face, I loved your hair
Your T-shirts and your eveningwear
As for the world, the job, the war
I ditched them all to love you more

And now you’re gone, now you’re gone
As if there ever was a you
Who broke the heart and made it new
Who’s moving on, who’s kidding who

I loved your moods, I love the way
They threaten every single day
Your beauty ruled me, though I knew
Twas more hormonal than the view

And now you’re gone, now you’re gone
As if there ever was a you
Queen of lilac, queen of blue
Who’s moving on, who’s kidding who

I loved your face, I loved your hair
Your T-shirts and your eveningwear
As for the world, the job, the war
I ditched them all to love you more

And now you’re gone, now you’re gone
As if there ever was a you
Who held me dying, pulled me through
Who’s moving on, who’s kidding who

  1. Su voz, su palabra, su poesía, su música, su legado. Leonard Cohen, arte en estado puro
