    Hallelujah by Leonard Cohen (5/24/2017)

    I have to say this is one of my absolute favorite songs. – It can’t get any better than 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”

    [Chorus]
    Hallelujah, Hallelujah
    Hallelujah, Hallelujah

    [Verse 2]
    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

    [Chorus]
    Hallelujah, Hallelujah
    Hallelujah, Hallelujah

    [Verse 3]
    Baby I have been here before
    I know this room, I’ve walked this floor

    I used to live alone before I knew you
    I’ve seen your flag on the marble arch
    Love is not a victory march
    It’s a cold and it’s a broken Hallelujah

    [Chorus]
    Hallelujah, Hallelujah
    Hallelujah, Hallelujah

    [Verse 4]
    There was a time you let me know
    What’s really going on below
    But now you never show it to me, do you?

    And remember when I moved in you
    The holy dove was moving too

    And every breath we drew was Hallelujah

    [Chorus]
    Hallelujah, Hallelujah
    Hallelujah, Hallelujah

    [Verse 5]
    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

    [Chorus]
    Hallelujah, Hallelujah
    Hallelujah, Hallelujah

    [Verse 6]
    Maybe there’s a God above
    But all I’ve ever learned from love
    Was how to shoot somebody who outdrew you

    And it’s not a cry that you hear at night
    It’s not somebody who’s seen the light
    It’s a cold and it’s a broken Hallelujah

    [Chorus]
    Hallelujah, Hallelujah
    Hallelujah, Hallelujah

    [Verse 7]
    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

    [Chorus]
    Hallelujah, Hallelujah
    Hallelujah, Hallelujah
