Hallelujah: Leonard Cohen

2 Feb

May be have posted this before
As for me all learnt from love
is to go back to this song again and again
so perhaps re sharing for you dear friends πŸ™‚

― ( Puthen veedil Suresh Velayudhan Nair. This is my full name, abbreviated name : PVSVN , almost sounds like a satellite launch vehicle PSLV right πŸ™‚ I got scared and made it into Suresh Nair in school. This hardly of use information is just in fun !)

This is my favorite song . I want to share this song for you friends. This believe is a 1988 live version. This is a great song and perhaps the most covered song in history..

Hallelujah :
Baby, I’ve been here before.
I know this room, I’ve walked this floor.
I used to live alone before I knew you.

Yeah 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, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, (Hallelujah…)

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?

Yeah but I remember, yeah when I moved in you,
And the holy dove, she was moving too,
Yes every single breath that we drew was Hallelujah.

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah.

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, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah.

love is not some kind of victory march,
No it’s a cold and it’s a very broken Hallelujah.
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah.
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah.

This is such a great song, one more live version from the master ..

The first two stanzas of this great song is:

Now 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
Hallelujah
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, and she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

This single first came out in “Various positions” album,December 1984/February 1985.

I believe this is a brilliantly written song. And as for me, all learnt from love is ” love is not some kind of victory march, No it’s a cold and it’s a very broken Hallelujah…. “.

And ” 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. Yeah even tough it all went wrong. I’ll stand right here before the Lord of Song. With nothing on my lips but Hallelujah…”

I post this song for you my friend, love of my life and hope you are well in your world. And I post this for Venuses….

Have a lovely day! Thank you!
