Hallelujah (Live in London) Lyrics

Hallelujah (哈利路亚) - Leonard Cohen (莱昂纳德·科恩)

Written by:Leonard Cohen

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 in 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

 

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

 

Hallelujah Hallelujah

Hallelujah Hallelujah

 

There was a time when 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

 

Hallelujah Hallelujah

 

Hallelujah Hallelujah

 

Maybe there's a God above

 

But all I've ever learned from love

Was how to shoot at someone who outdrew you

 

It's not a cry you can hear at night

It's not somebody who has seen the light

 

It's a cold and it's a broken 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

Hallelujah Hallelujah

Hallelujah Hallelujah

Hallelujah Hallelujah

Hallelujah Hallelujah

Hallelujah Hallelujah

Hallelujah Hallelujah

 

Hallelujah
