Hallelujah

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 ya
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

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 doesn’t matter which you heard
The holy or the broken hallelujah

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah

I did my best, it wasn’t much
I couldn’t feel, so I tried to touch
I’ve told the truth, I didn’t 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
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
……

Leonard Cohen

Lover, You Should’ve Come Over

Looking out the door
I see the rain fall upon the funeral mourners
Parading in a wake of sad relations
As their shoes fill up with water
Maybe I’m too young
To keep good love from going wrong
But tonight you’re on my mind so
You’ll never know

Broken down and hungry for your love
With no way to feed it
Where are you tonight?
Child, you know how much I need it.
Too young to hold on
And too old to just break free and run
Sometimes a man gets carried away,
When he feels like he should be having his fun
Much too blind to see the damage he’s done
Sometimes a man must awake to find that, really,
He has no one

So I’ll wait for you and I’ll burn
Will I ever see your sweet return,
Or, will I ever learn?
Lover, you should’ve come over
‘Cause it’s not too late.

Lonely is the room the bed is made
The open window lets the rain in
Burning in the corner is the only one
Who dreams he had you with him
My body turns and yearns for a sleep
That won’t ever come

It’s never over,
My kingdom for a kiss upon her shoulder
It’s never over, all my riches for her smiles
When I slept so soft against her
It’s never over,
All my blood for the sweetness of her laughter
It’s never over,
She is the tear that hangs inside my soul forever
But maybe I’m just too young,
To keep good love from going wrong
Oh lover, you should’ve come over, yeah yeah yes

I feel too young to hold on
I’m much too old to break free and run
Too deaf, dumb, and blind
To see the damage I’ve done
Sweet lover, you should’ve come over
Oh, love I’ve waited for you
Lover, you should’ve come over
‘Cause it’s not too late

Jeff Buckley

Corpus Christi Carol

He bear her off, he bear her down
He bear her into an orchard ground
Lu li lu lay
Lu li lu lay
The falcon hath bourne my mate away

And in that orchard there was a hold
That was hanged with purple and gold
And in that hold there was a bed
And it was hanged with gold so red

Lu li lu lay, lu li lu lay
The falcon hath bourne my mate away
On this bed there lyeth a knight
His wound is bleeding day and night
By his bedside kneeleth a maid
And she weepeth both night and day

Lu li lu lay, lu li lu lay
The falcon hath bourne my mate away

By his bedside standeth a stone
Corpus Christi written thereon.

Steve Abbott, Simon Lole, Ian Tilley, Traditional Unknown Writer

Eternal Life

Eternal life is now on my trail
Got my red glitter coffin, man, just need one last nail
While all these ugly gentlemen play out their foolish games
There’s a flaming red horizon that screams our names

And as your fantasies are broken in two
Did you really think this bloody road would pave the way for you?
You better turn around and blow your kiss hello to life eternal,
Angel

Racist everyman, what have you done?
Man, you’ve made a killer of your unborn son
Oh crown my fear your king at the point of a gun
All I want to do is love everyone

And as your fantasies are broken in two
Did you really think this bloody road would pave the way for you?
You better turn around and blow your kiss hello to life eternal

There’s no time for hatred, only questions
What is love, where is happiness, what is life, where is peace?
When will I find the strength to bring me release?

Tell me where is the love in what your prophet has said?
Man, it sounds to me just like a prison for the walking dead
I’ve got a message for you and your twisted hell
You better turn around and blow your kiss goodbye to life eternal
Angel yeah
Angel, unh, angel, unh

Jeff Buckley

Dream Brother

There is a child sleeping near his twin
The pictures go wild in a rush of wind
That dark angel he is shuffling in
Watching over them with his black feather wings unfurled

The love you lost with her skin so fair
Is free with the wind in her butterscotch hair
Her green eyes bloom goodbyes
With her head in her hands and your kiss on the lips another
Dream brother with your tears scattered round the world

Don’t be like the one who made me so old
Don’t be like the one who left behind his name
‘Cause they’re waiting for you like I waited for mine
And nobody ever came

Don’t be like the one who made me so old
Don’t be like the one who left behind his name
‘Cause they’re waiting for you like I waited for mine
And nobody ever came

Don’t be like the one who made me so old
Don’t be like the one who left behind his name
‘Cause they’re waiting for you like I waited for mine
And nobody ever came, nobody ever came

I feel afraid and I call your name
I love your voice and your dance insane
I hear your words and I know your pain
Your head in your hands and a kiss on the lips of another
Your eyes to the ground and the world spinning round forever
Asleep in the sand with the ocean washing over

Jeff Buckley, Matt Johnson, Mick Grondahl

Forget Her

While the city’s busy sleeping
All your troubles lie awake
I walk the streets to stop my weeping
But she’ll never change her ways

Don’t fool yourself
She was heartache from the moment that you met her
My heart feels so still
As I try to find the will to forget her somehow
Oh I think I’ve forgotten her now

Her love is a rose dead and dying
Dropping her petals and man I know
All full of wine the world before her
But sober with no place to go

Don’t fool yourself
She was heartache from the moment that you met her
My heart is frozen still
As I try to find the will to forget her somehow
She’s somewhere out there now

Oh my tears fall down as I tried to forget
The love was a joke from the day that we met
All of the words all of her men
All of my pain when I think back to when
Remember her hair as it shone in the sun
It was there on the bed when I knew what she’d done
Tell yourself over and over you won’t ever need her again

Don’t fool yourself
She was heartache from the moment that you met her
Oh my heart is frozen still
As I try to find the will to forget her somehow
She’s out there somewhere now

Oh
She was heartache from the day that I first met her
My heart is frozen still
As I try to find the will to forget you somehow
Cause I know you’re somewhere out there right now

Jeff Buckley
