Hallelujah


and even though it all went wrong
I’ll stand right here before the Lord of Song
with nothing on my tongue but
Hallelujah


Que que é essa música, hem? Aleluia!



HALLELUJIA
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 and the major lift
the baffled king composing
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 her kitchen chair
she broke your throne and she cut your hair
and from your lips she drew the
Hallelujah

well, maybe there’s a God above
as for me, all I’ve ever learned from love
is how to shoot at someone who outdrew you

but it’s not a cry that you hear at night
it’s not some [pilgrim who climbs to see?] the light
no, it’s a cold and it’s a very broken
Hallelujah

baby, I’ve been here before
I know this room and I’ve walked this floor
you see, I used to live alone before I knew you

and I’ve seen your flag on the marble arch
but  love, love is not a kind of victory march
no, it’s a cold and it’s a very lonely
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?

but remember when I moved in you
and the holy dove, she was moving too
and every single breath that we drew was
Hallelujah

I did my best, I know it wasn’t much
I couldn’t feel, so I learned to touch
I’ve told the truth, I didn’t come [here to London] just to fool you

and even though it all went wrong
I’ll stand right here before the Lord of Song
with nothing on my tongue but
Hallelujah
