Hallelujah

I don't know why, but this Leonard Cohen song really hits home. It's been stuck in my brain for days - along with a Cowboy Junkies tune You're Missing.

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 kind composing Hallelujah

Chorus of 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 the kitchen chair
She broker your thrown and she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah

Chorus of 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 life in every word
It doesn't matter which you heard
The holy or the broken Hallelujah

Chorus of 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

(Chorus - repeat)
