Leonard Cohen e l’Halleluja che ci ha fatto innamorare

Oggi Leonard Choen spegne 81 candeline: un cantautore, un poeta, uno scrittore un compositore di sogni. Oggi vogliamo alleggerire la giornata accompagnandoci con le note che più ci hanno fatto battere il cuore, quella melodia che quando dici Halleluja non puoi che provare a canticchiare, tutti la conosciamo chi più chi meno, per questo con il testo sotto mano sentiamoci un po’ tutti più romantici e cantiamo insieme…

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

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

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

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

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
