Hallelujah by Leonard Cohen: a piano cover

Hi everybody! Welcome! My name is Phoenix and today I’m going to be playing one of my favorite songs on the piano. But this one is called Hallelujah, by Leonard Cohen. But my favorite version is by Jeff Buckley. Wish me luck!

My friend Tanner let me use his microphone so that the video sounded better. I know it’s not the best ever but I’m still working on it. Hope you like it!

Lyrics:

Well I 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 [x4]

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 her kitchen chair
She broke your throne and she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah

Hallelujah [x4]

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 you
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 [x4]

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?
But remember when I moved in you
And the holy dove was moving too
And every breath we drew was Hallelujah

Hallelujah [x4]

Maybe there’s a God above
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

Hallelujah [x4]

Thank you for watching. I’ll see you next time. Goodbye everybody!
