Hallelujah (Leonard Cohen)

hallelujah, Leonard Cohen Reúno aquí los que me parecen las siete estrofas que componen esta poesía/canción incluido el "coro secreto".
No he escuchado a nadie cantarlos completos.


I


I've heard there was a secret chord
That David played, and it pleased the Lord
But you don't 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 x 4

II


Your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew you

She tied youto a kitchen chair
She broke your throne, and she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah

Hallelujah x 4


III


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 you?

There's a blaze of light In every word
It doesn't matter which you heard
The holy or the broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah x 4


IV


ajedrezBaby, I've been here before.
I know this room, I've walked this floor.
I used to live alone before I knew you.

I've seen your flag on the marble arch,
But listen, love is not some kind of victory march,
No, it's a cold and it's a very broken Hallelujah.

Hallelujah x 4

V


There was a time you let me know
What's really going on below,
Ah but now you never show it to me, do you?

I remember, yeah when I moved in you,
And the holly dove, she was moving too,
Is in every single breath that we drew was Hallelujah.

Hallelujah x 4

VI


Maybe there's a God above,
As for me, all I've ever seemed to learn from love
Is how to shoot at someone who outdrew you.

Yeah but it's not a complaint that you hear tonight,
It's not the laughter of someone who claims to have seen the light
No it's a cold and it's a very lonely Hallelujah.

Hallelujah x 4

VII


I did my best, it wasn't much.
I couldn't feel, so I learned to touch.
I've told the truth, I didn't come all this way to fool you.

Even tough
it all went wrong
I'll stand right here before the Lord of Song
With nothing on my tonge(/lips) but Hallelujah.

Hallelujah x 4
Hallelujah x 4
