*Watch in HD* The Haiyan victims have been in my heart and prayers recently, so I decided to put this together (with the help of ateh ruthie) It's a beautiful song by Leonard Cohen/Jeff Buckley. There are many different meanings to this song but I personally believe and my full intent is this: The song revolves around the word Hallelujah, which is a Hebrew word, meaning "praise the Lord." And through the song, the composer says that all Hallelujah's are of equal value no matter the circumstances or the cause of the act. Whether it is in complete blissful faith or from broken desperation, all ways and goals to praise the Lord mean the same and are all equal. Please let us not take away the purpose of my cover by other worldly meanings. Let's think and pray about the typhoon victims and despite all the sufferings our country may have endured, may God bless our people tremendously and hope for fast full recovery. Thank you. To find out ways to help: instrumental used: Lyrics: 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, Hallelujah Hallelujah, Hallelujah Your faith was strong but you needed proof You saw her bathing on the roof Her beauty in 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, Hallelujah Hallelujah, Hallelujah Baby I have been here before I know this room, I've walked this floor I used to live alone before I knew you. 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 Maybe there's a God above But all I've ever learned from love Was how to shoot at someone who outdrew you It's not a cry you can hear at night It's not somebody who has seen the light It's a cold and it's a broken Hallelujah Hallelujah, Hallelujah Hallelujah, Hallelujah
