Leonard Cohen, “Hallelujah”
“Hallelujah”
“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 battle 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 you.
She tied you to a kitchen chair,
She broke your throne, and she cut your hair.
And from your lips she drew the 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 Hallelujah…
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
I did my best, it wasn’t much.
I couldn’t feel, so I tried to touch.
I’ve told the truth, I didn’t come to fool you.
And even though it all went wrong
I’ll stand before the Lord of Song
With nothing on my tongue but Hallelujah…
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Hallelujah”
Stay strong, folks, no matter what…
