Praise God

Hallelujah

"Our love is not a Victory march...it's a cold and it's a broken Hallelujah"

Thank you Leonard Cohen.

"I couldn't feel so I tried to touch"

"all I ever learned from love is how to shoot somebody that out drew you"

Who is this man
dark
and rough
and magical
in voice and composition

"It's, as I say, a desire to affirm my faith in life, not in some formal religious way but with enthusiasm, with emotion.... It's a rather joyous song." ~ Leonard Cohen

What is this word
that has all the beauty and truth of humanity in it
what is this word that can be cold
and broken
and spat out
and be only beauty
and light

Praise God - they say
and what other word could possibly match
Praise God

Hallelujah

Hallelujah

The solution to all evil
to all human darkeness
is

Hallelujah
Sing it
yell it
feel it
loud
Hallelujah

The word itself is god
