Hallelujah Songtext
von Leonard Cohen

Hallelujah Songtext

Now I've 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 falls, the major lifts
The baffled king composing Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

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

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Maybe 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
love is not a victory march
Its a cold and its a broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

You say I took the Name in vain
I dont 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 doesnt matter which you heard
The holy or the broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

I did my best, but it wasnt much
I couldn't feel, so I tried to touch
I've told the truth, I didnt come to fool you
And even though it all went wrong
I'll stand before the Lord of song
With nothing on my tongue but Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Leonard Cohen - Hallelujah

Nicole Heidtmann

sie band dich an ihren küchenstuhl,
sie zerstörte deinen thron und schnitt dein haar
und nahm von deinen lippen das haleluja

das lied ist genial aber mire gefällt die cover-version von rea garvey am besten!!! :)
das ist einfach umwerfend ♥

Das schönste Lied der Welt :)
Kann Stunden damit verbringen, in meinem Zimmer zu liegen und zu dieser Musik an die Decke zu starren *-*


Einfach toll das Lied! <3
Ich liebe es total <3

Mir kommen meistens die Tränen, weil das Lied so schön ist <33

in der 2. Strophe muss es heissen:
"She tied you to HER kitchen chair"


Hab auf ARD den Film "Die fetten Jahre" gesehen. Als das Lied kam, dachte ich direkt, ich muss dringend recherchieren, von wem das ist und mir mal den Text genau angucken.

Einfach toll...
