HALLELUJAH ~ Story/Lyrics

HALLELUJAH LYRICS - 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 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





Well, I heard there was a secret chord
That David played to please the Lord
But you don't really care for music, do you?

Well, it goes like this the fourth, the fifth
The minor fall and the major lift
The baffled king composing Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah




Well, your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew you

And she tied you to her kitchen chair
She broke your throne and she cut your hair
And from the lips she drew the Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah




Yeah, baby, I've been here before
I've seen this room and I've walked this floor
I used to live alone before I knew you

And I've seen your flag on that marble arch
Your love is not a victory march
It's a cold and it's a broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Well, there was a time when you let me know
What was going on below
Now you don't never show that to me, do you?




But remember when I moved in you
And the holy dove was moving too
And every breath we drew was Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Well, now though there be a God above
But all I've ever learned from love
Was how to shoot somebody who outdrew you

And it's not your cry that I hear at night, no
It's not someone who's seen the light
It's a cold and it's a broken Hallelujah

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




The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It's the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows and the beauty of a woman only grows with passing years


When we enter into any kind of relationship, be it friendship or a romantic relationship. Each person gives to the other, the gift of trust and love, this is when we can be at our most vulnerable, we can feel betrayed if something goes wrong. Treat each other well, give each other the compassion, understanding, respect, and honour that you would wish to receive yourself. Each and every day the bond will strengthen itself between you, the gift of friendship is the best gift indeed.


''A thing of beauty is a joy forever: its loveliness increases; it will never pass into nothingness.'' -John Keats
