about

Roger Berkeley's cover of Leonard Cohen's 'Hallelujah'.
Arranged and recorded September 2012

lyrics

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?
It goes like this, the fourth, the fifth,
The minor fall and the major lift
The baffled king composing Hallelujah

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah

*Instrumental*

Your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty in the moonlight overthrew ya
She tied you to her kitchen chair
She broke your throne and she cut your hair
And from her lips she drew the Hallelujah

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah

Well baby I've been here before
I know this room, I've walked this floor
I used to live alone before I knew ya
I've seen your flag on the marble arch
And love is not a victory march
It's a cold and it's a broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah

*Instrumental*

There was a time when you let me know
What's really going on below
But now you never show it to me do ya?
I 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 learnt from love
Was how to shoot at somebody who outdrew ya
It's not a cry that you hear at night
It's not someone who has seen the light
It's a cold and it's a broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
