2 – a broken Hallelujah

A Torino, per il weekend, riscopro la mia città, i miei amici, gli incubi e i rimpianti della vita che avevo qui.

Provo a ricostruire mattoncino per mattoncino una rete, una vita. E per l’ultima volta mi volto indietro.

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
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah

 

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

 

There was a time you let me know
What’s really going on below
But now you never show it to me, do you?
And I remember when I moved in you
The holy dove she was moving too
And every breath we drew was Hallelujah

 

Hallelujah
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
Hallelujah
Hallelujah

 

 Maybe there’s a God above
And all I 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’s seen the light
it’s a cold and it’s a broken Hallelujah

 

(Leonard Cohen – Hallelujah)
