K.D. Lang sings Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah

Words supplied by Kristen Samet
Hallelujah – by Leonard Cohen
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 in the moonlight overthrew you She tied you to a kitchen chair, she broke your throne she cut your hair and from your lips she drew the halleujah

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 it's a cold and it's a broken Hallelujah

Maybe there's a God above and all I ever learn aed from love
Was how to shoot at someone who outdrew you It's not a cry you can hear at night It's not somebody who's seen the light
it's a cold and it's a broken Hallelujah
