Hallelujah

You might have heard this version (by Jeff Buckley) of Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah  on House, Grey’s Anatomy, The OC or West Wing.

Well I heard there was a secret chord
That David played, and it pleased the Lord
But you don’t really care for music, do ya?
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
she tied you to her kitchen chair
She broke your throne and she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah

Well 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 ya
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

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?
And 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 maybe there’s a God above
But all I’ve ever learned from love
Was how to shoot somebody who’d out-drew you
And 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
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah <<(held for a long time)
Hallelujah

  1. Cohen is god. Buckley’s version okayish. Love the guitar sound.

    Where u been, teacher?

  2. Ahmad Kamal Abu Bakar… Not really familiar with Cohen yet but judging by this piece alone, he might really be divine indeed. You’re right about the guitar sound on Buckley’s version though, just the right amount of reverb and chorus.
    Been knocking about waiting for my new car from Proton Edar. Tardy bastards the lot! Save me a t-shirt will ya?

  3. Ah, okay.

    Hang size apa kot? The M is around 40″ in width, can fit or not? Or you want the Baby tee? LOL.
