HALLELUJAH – LEONARD COHEN
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!
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
And she broke your throne and she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah!
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
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
