According to an article posted Sept. 15 at RollingStone.com, the legendary Canadian singer-songwriter introduced the song early in the show's second set at his Sept. 12 performance at Dublin's O2 Arena.
The song has a bluesy feel, built on a sparse, minor-key three chord structure with Cohen's lyrics musing over the familiar themes of ageing and death. "I'd like to love you baby, but I don't feel right," the septuagenarian Montreal native sings. "I've got this full length mirror and it ain't a pretty sight."
Fans can check out a video of the performance at YouTube.com.
Cohen wrapped up the Canadian leg of his highly successful AEG Live produced tour in April, and is currently completing the final dates on his European leg, which include Sept. 15 at London's O2 Arena, as well as Sept. 18 and Sept. 20 in Rotterdam, Netherlands at Ziggo Dome, before finishing 2013 with nine dates in Australia, beginning Nov. 13 in Perth, AU at Perth Arena.
