Devil May Cry.........

There is a song that makes me cry everytime I hear it.

And I mean everytime. Always has, and probably always will. I don't normally go for lyrics in a song, but this makes my hair stand on end.

I have to listen to it on my own because of the emotional impact it has.

What is it?

"Hallelujah" by Leonard Cohen. Especially the Jeff Buckley version. Here's a sample.

I've heard about the secret chord
That David played and pleased the Lord
But you don't really care for music, do you
It goes like this, the 4ths, the 5ths,
The minor falls and the major lifts
The bewildered king composes Hallelujah

Now your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathe upon the roof
And her beauty and the moonlight overthrew you
She tied you to her kitchen chair
She broke your throne and cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah

Maybe I've been in this place before
I've seen the rooms and I've walked the floor
I used to live alone before I knew you
Now I've seen your flag on the marble arch
And love is not a victory march
Its a cold and its a broken Hallelujah

There are other verses, but I find the imagery in these very profound. Maybe due to where I am emotionally.

A cold and broken Hallelujah.

I'm going to listen to it again.........
