Hallelujah – Anxiety Version

Yet another version of Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah.  Poor man.  Writes one song that resonates with everyone and loses ownership of it.  Alas, I am not a singer so my song can only be sung in your head. 

I heard about old Jericho,

the walls fell when the trumpets did blow

but you don’t really want to lose your walls do you?

It went like this they circled around

and the Lord knocked the wall down

and they were able to sing their hallelujah.

Hallelujah.  Hallelujah.  Hallelujah.  Hallelujah.

You didn’t know what you missed before

you shut them out and closed the door

the moment has a tendency to overthrow you

you do your best to keep them out

you feed your fear and in comes the doubt

and from your heart you long for a hallelujah.

Hallelujah.  Hallelujah.  Hallelujah.  Hallelujah.

Baby I’ve been here before

I’ve seen this room and I’ve walked this floor

I prefer to be alone just like you

And I’ve felt the pain inside your tender heart

this life will try to tear you apart

it’s the best I can offer hallelujah.

Hallelujah.  Hallelujah.  Hallelujah.  Hallelujah.

We search for some secret to life

that could make us happy amidst the strife

but we don’t really know how to be happy, do we

I just want to find where I belong

Don’t tell me now I’m doing it wrong

I’m just searching for my hallelujah.

Hallelujah.  Hallelujah.  Hallelujah.  Hallelujah.

Maybe there’s a chance for me

someday I could even be free

but for now I’ll share this much with you

I’m always lost and a little broken

but this life is my only token

it’s the best I can offer hallelujah.

Hallelujah.  Hallelujah.  Hallelujah.  Hallelujah.

 

I figured I should share the original from Leonard Cohen.

Another version I like by Peter Hollens and Jackie Evancho
