Ein Song, der mir seit meiner Begeisterung für Leonard Cohen gefällt … hier mal in der wirklich schönen Version von Malin aus Reykjavik/Island … mir gefällt’s! 🙂

Im web: Leonard Cohen

Songtext:

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 forth or fifth
the minor fall and the major lift
The baffled king composing halleluja

Halleluja
Halleluja
Halleluja
Halleluja

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

Halleluja
Halleluja
Halleluja
halleluja

You say I took the name in Vain
I don´t even know the name
But if i did well really what´s it to ya
There´s ablaze of light in every word
It doesn´t matter which you heard
The holy or the broken halleluja

Halleluja
Halleluja
Halleluja
Halleluja

I did my best it wasn´t much
I couldn´t feel so I tried to touch
I´ve told the truth I didn´t come to fool ya
And even though it all went wrong
I´ll stand before the Lord of Song
With nothing on my tongue but halleluja

Halleluja
Halleluja
Halleluja
Halleluja

Halleluja
Halleluja
Halleluja
Halleluja

Halleluja…
