Another post in less than 3 days! Oh what a surprise!

I decided I just had to pop by and post these videos up:

Beautiful, huh? It (in the words of Earl) “brought tears to my eyes”. And here are the 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, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

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

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

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

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Maybe there is a god above
But 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, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

And no matter what Moojojojo aka Joanna says, this is definitely not about sex! My goodness. Not everything is meant to be taken literally!! Sommmmmmmeone’s got her mind in the gutter, eh? 😛

It’s a beautiful song about the fleeting nature of relationships and how love is not the glorious and everlasting tale that people say it is – it’s bitter and transient and vengeful and it breaks your heart when you least expect it to.

How morbid. Unfortunately I am one of those happily optimistic –>(^.^) people who revels in all that idealism that belief in love entails so yeah. This song isn’t going to cause me any disillusionment (: Just 4 minutes worth of teary eyes.

Nice.

Oh my. I need to sing it need to sing it need to sing it….
