Hallelujah / Leonard Cohen ~RIP~

Hallelujah / Leonard Cohen

Now I’ve heard there was a secret chord
That David played, and it pleased the Lord
But you don’t really care for music, do you?
It goes like this
The fourth, the fifth
The minor fall, the major lift
The baffled king composing Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew ya’
She tied you
To a kitchen chair
She broke your throat, and she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Now maybe, there’s a God above
All I ever learned from love
Is how to shoot at someone who outdrew you
But it’s not a cry that you hear tonight
It’s not some pilgrim who claims to have seen the light
No, it’s a cold and very broken, Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Babe I been here before
And I want this floor
I used to live alone before I knew you
And I’ve seen your flag on the marble arch
Listen, love… Love isn’t some kind of victory march
No, it’s a cold and it’s a very lonely, Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
There was a time that you let me know
What’s really going on below
But now, you never show it to me, do you?
I remember when i moved in you
And the Holy Love she was moving too
And every single breath she drew a Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
(You say I took the name in vain
I don’t even know the name
But if I did, well really, what’s it to you?
There’s a blaze of light
In every word
It doesn’t matter which you heard
The holy or the broken HallelujahHallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah)
I did my best, it wasn’t much
I could not feel, so I learned to touch
I told the truth, I didn’t come… to fool you
And even though it all went wrong
I’ll stand right here before the lord of song
w/ nothing on my tongue but Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah
