    "I don't even know where to being with this one. Maybe I should begin at the beginning. The very beginning.
    It began for me when I was 14. I learnt a song, and tentatively stood up to sing it in front of the whole school at the end of the year. I don't remember feeling nervous. I was too young to even feel shy. I just sang. This song. And the school, the people I lived with and loved, sang it with me.
    I haven't stopped singing this song, or just singing, ever since."

    Saskia Griffiths-Moore, accompanied by Jack Cookson and Lukas Drinkwater at Fieldgate studios, perform an acoustic cover one of her oldest and most requested songs: Hallelujah by Leonard Cohen.

    Lyrics are:
    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 you?
    Well it goes like this: the fourth, the fifth
    The minor fall and the major lift
    The baffled king composing Hallelujah

    Hallelujah [x4]

    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 [x4]

    Baby I've been here before
    I've seen this room and I've walked this floor (you know)
    I used to live alone before I knew you
    And 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 [x4]

    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

    Hallelujah [x4]

    Maybe there's a God above
    All I've ever learned from love
    Was how to shoot somebody who outdrew 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 Show less
