Come Healing

by

Leonard Cohen



Songfacts®:  You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

This plea for reparation is one of four tracks on Old Ideas that Cohen co-wrote with Patrick Leonard. The American songwriter-producer is best known for co-penning many of Madonna's late '80s hits including "Live to Tell"and "Like A Prayer."
The song finds Cohen asking that the heavens hear this "penitential hymn." "I'm not sure what this means," said the singer-poet during a press preview in London (as reported by The Sun). "Is the penitence appropriate to God or man? I mean who is to blame for this catastrophe?"
The female vocalist who opens the song is Dana Glover who is best known for performing film songs such as the duet "Plan On Forever" for The Wedding Planner and "The Way (Radio Song)" for Two Weeks Notice.
