das andere große Halleluja

Now I've 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 falls, the major lifts
The baffled king composing Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew her
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

Maybe I've 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

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 doesnt matter which you heard
The holy or the broken Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

I did my best, but it wasn't much
I couldn't feel, so I tried to touch
I've told the truth, I didnt 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
Normalerweise reicht mir das Original eines Liedes, aber hier lässt sich die Vielfalt der Interpretation gut erkennen.
und als letztes den Ersten.
Der Vorgarten dankt fürs Zuhören.

    Ich mag Frau Trigwell am liebsten.
    Und kann sein, dass ich in der Kirche mal war, in der sie singt.
    Die steht nämlich in Leeds und als ich Schüleraustausch hatte, war ich auch da.
    Aber ich weiß nicht mehr, ob ich da an Kirchenbesuchen interessiert war.
    Eher an anderen public houses...


Nur Mut. So ein Kommentarfeld beißt nicht.
