Hallelujah

Heard this beautiful song….kinda sad but haunting….Written by Leonard Cohen and last sung by Kate Voegele. The song has references to the bible especially to King David.
Well I’ve heard there was a sacred 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 low on the roof
Her beauty in the moonlight overthrew you.
And she tied you to her kitchen chair
She broke your throne
She cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Well baby I have been here before
I’ve seen this room, and I’ve walked this floor
You know, I used to live alone before I knew you.
And 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
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 you?
And remember when I moved in you
The holy dove was moving too
And every breath we drew was Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah,
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Well maybe there is a God above
But all I’ve ever learned from love
Was how to shoot somebody who outdrew you.
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, Oh
Hallelujah, Oo Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Found 2 different versions of the song.. Here are the links for both.
