Everybody knows - Leonard Cohen

Leonard Cohen - Hallelujah (original studio version)


Les paroles d'«Hallelujah»
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
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
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
I did my best, it wasn't much 
I couldn't feel, so I tried to touch 
I've told the truth, I didn't 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
