HALLELUJAH - MARCH 21st: WORLD DAY OF POETRY


by Leonard Cohen

Hallelujah

Now I've heard there was a secret chord

That David played, and it pleased the Lord

But you dont really care for music, do you?

It goes like this, the fourth, the fifth The minor falls,

the major lifts

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 her

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

Maybe I've 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 Its a cold and its a broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah

You say I took the Name in vain

I dont 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 doesnt matter which you heard The holy or the broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah

I did my best, but it wasnt much

I couldn't feel, so I tried to touch

I've told the truth, I didnt 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...
