Hallelujah by K.D Lang

I used to love this song in the 80's and completely forgotten about it until I heard Jason Castro sang this on American Idol and I think he sang it really well. There are a few version of it and one of them is by the late Jeff Buckley but I think KD Lang is the one that really has the most beautiful voice. I was moved to tears each time I listen to her sing this.

Hallelujah by K.D Lang
Album: Hymns of the 49th Parallel [Nonesuch] (2004)

I heard there was a secret chord
That David played, and it pleased the Lord
You don't really care for music, do ya?
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 over threw ya
She tied you
To a kitchen chair
She broke your throne, and she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Baby I've been here before,
I've seen this room and I've walked those floor,
I used to live alone before I knew ya
But I've seen your flag on the marble arch,
Our love is not a victory march,
It's a cold and its a broken hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Maybe there's a God above,
But all I've ever learnt from love,
Is how to shoot somebody who outdrew ya,
It's not a cry that u hear at night,
It's not someone who sees the light,
It's a cold and broken hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Cat, I remember seeing an interview of her and she said she is from Canada but I never knew she is an artist. She is really a talented woman. By the way, will be sending the shoes to you this week.

I came to your blog while scouring the net for ayam masak merah recipe, and lo and behold, found a mention of Jason Castro, my favourite AI contestant ever. I'm Malaysian too, now temporarily residing in Moscow. Hello!
