Hallelujah veniva scritta nel 1984 da Leonard Cohen e conta fino ad oggi almeno 50 cover ufficiali (con tanto di varie traduzioni in lingue diverse). Tra tutte, questa di Jeff Buckley non solo è la più famosa ed apprezzata, ma è quella che è riuscita addirittura ad oscurare l’originale. Veniva incisa nel 1994 col fortunato album Grace.

C Am C Am
Well I've heard there was a secret chord, C Am That David played and it pleased the Lord, F G C G But you don't really care for music, do ya? C F G It goes like this, the 4th, the 5th, Am F The minor fall and the major lift, G E7 Am The baffled king com-posing hallelujah, F Am F C G C Halle-lujah, halle-lujah, halle-lujah, halle lu--- --- jah C Am C Am Well 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 And she broke your throne and she cut your hair And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah Well baby I've been here before I've seen this room and I've walked this floor I used to live alone before I knew ya 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
Well 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? And remember when I moved in you? And the holy dove was moving too And every breath we drew was Hallelujah
Well maybe there's a God above But all I've ever learned from love Was how to shoot somebody who'd out drew ya 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...
