Live in France 1995

Words & music by Leonard Cohen

Hallelujah
Ive heard there was a secret chord
That david played and it pleased the lord
But you dont 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

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 a kitchen chair
She broke your throne, she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the hallelujah

Hallelujah

Baby Ive been here before, I know this room
Ive walked this floor
I used to live alone before I knew you
Ive seen your flag on the marble arch
Love is not a victory march
Its a cold and its a broken hallelujah

Hallelujah

There was a time you let me know
Whats really going on below
But now you never show it to me, do you?
I remember when I moved in you
And the holy dove was moving too
And every breath we drew was hallelujah

Hallelujah

Maybe theres a God above, all I ever learned from love
Was how to shoot at someone who out drew you
And its not a cry you can hear at night
Its not somebody whos seen the light
Its a cold and its a broken hallelujah

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
