hallelujah

Leonard Cohen’s Halleluja seems to me smelling of peace. Hereunder my re-elaborated version, I hope you will not get me wrong… Season’s greetings to everyone!

My Hallelujah
Based on Leonard Cohen’s ‘Hallelujah’
(please to listen to while reading…)

Now I am sure on my secret Fate
that Fortune played, and it pleased the Lord,
And I will explain in music, won’t I?
It goes like this
The fourth, the fifth
The minor fall, the major lift,
and everybody singing ‘Hallelujah’…

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah

My faith was strong but You needed proof
You saw my path toward the roof
The sense of magic overthrew me
and my hope is for humanity
No further thrones, and neither kings
And from our lips will sing the Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
My hearth destroyed, my runs in vain
and still the goal seemed far to gain
But if I so, well really, what’s it to you?
There’s a blaze of light
In every world
It doesn’t matter on what time,
now and in future, Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

I did my best, it wasn’t much
I couldn’t feel, so I tried to touch
I’ve told the truth, always being a good,
No compromises, and nothing wrong,
in the future too, to you I will belong
With nothing on my tongue but Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah
