知性加上一貫的黑色調作風,
雖沒能獲得商業市場上的成功,卻是紐約樂團黎明期不可或缺的人物,
或可稱他為現代搖滾之父.
他內蘊深情的歌聲,一聽就令人久久難以忘懷.
此曲後來亦有不少人翻唱吧.


Hallelujah
John Cale
Words & music by leonard cohen







Ive heard there was a secret chord
That david played and it pleased the lord
But you dont 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, she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the hallelujah

Hallelujah

Baby Ive been here before, I know this room
Ive walked this floor
I used to live alone before I knew you
Ive seen your flag on the marble arch
Love is not a victory march
Its a cold and its a broken hallelujah

Hallelujah

There was a time you let me know
Whats really going on below
But now you never show it to me, do you?
I remember when I moved in you
And the holy dove was moving too
And every breath we drew was hallelujah

Hallelujah

Maybe theres a God above, all I ever learned from love
Was how to shoot at someone who out drew you
And its not a cry you can hear at night
Its not somebody whos seen the light
Its a cold and its a broken hallelujah

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
