Hallelujah - Leonhard Cohen

Strophe) 

I heard there was a sevret chord 

That David played and it pleased 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 kind composing hallelujah

 

Refrain) 

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah.....

 

 

Strophe) 

Well your faith was strong but you needed proof 

You saaw her bathing on the roof 

Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew you

She tied you to her kitchen chair 

She broke your throne and she cut your hair 

And from your lips she drew the hallelujah

 

Refrain) 

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah.....

 

Strophe) 

Baby I´ve been here before 

I´ve seen this room and I´ve walked this floor 

I used to live alone before I know you 

I´ve seen your flag on the marble arch 

But love is not a victory march 

It´s a cold and it´s a broken hallelujah 

 

Refrain) 

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah.....

 

Strophe) 

Well there was a time when you let me know 

What´s really going on below 

But now you 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

 

Refrain) 

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah.....

 

Strophe) 

Well maybe there´s a god above 

But all I´ve ever learned from love 

Was how to shoot somebody who outdrew you 

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

 

Refrain) 

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah.....
