The songs lyrics were inspired by Cohen’s platonic relationship with a dancer called Suzanne Verdal. Cohen reminisces of the times they spent together by the harbour in Montreal and the walks they would take around Old Montreal past the church of Notre-Dame-de-Bon-Secours where sailors were blessed before heading out to sea.
