Hallelujah
Lucky Jim Lyrics


Well 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?
Well it goes like this:
The fourth, the fifth, the minor fall and the major lift
The baffled king composing Hallelujah

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah

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

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah

But baby I've been here before
I've seen this room and I've walked this floor
You know, I used to live alone before I knew ya
And I've seen your flag on the marble arch
And love is not a victory march
It's a cold and it's a broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah

Well there was a time when you let me know
What's really going on below
But now you never show that to me do ya
But remember when I moved in you
And the holy dove was moving too
And every breath we drew was Hallelujah

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah

Maybe there's a God above
But all I've ever learned from love
Was how to shoot somebody who outdrew ya

And it's not a cry that you hear at night
It's not somebody who's seen the light
It's a cold and it's a broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah

Hallelujah

One of the best versions I have ever heard, Lucky Jim has made a beautiful piece of music more beautiful, He did an incredible job!

Love this version. his voice is absolutely great! well done.

affenonkel

This is my favourite version of the song too. Just 'cause he sings it with energy and emphasis unlike everyone else who covered it doesn't mean it sucks. So yeah...say what you want, this is great.

Le Meyr

for me this is the very best version of this beautiful song. every time i hear it i cry...

FRANK BLUEKA

Great version!!! Halleluja

T BXTWO

This is very captivating. An exceptional version sung in the poetic style of the author Leonard Cohen who came out of the beat era. But delivered with a more musical voice. Very good to listen again.

I love buckley's version, it's got the passion that leonard's lyrics deserve, such a beautiful song. I found something terrifingly comforting about the way it made me feel like hanging myself on a rope made of tears. lol I am so jolly...

DonnieDio

Jeff Buckley's version will always be the definitive version to me, even though it wasn't the original.

Pulsion

I like it, good version
