Jeff Buckley Medley: Hallelujah / Last Month Of The Year (live at Palais Theatre) Lyrics

Last updated: 08/28/2006 11:00:00 AM

(L. Cohen/traditional)
Hallelujah was originally contained in Leonard Cohen's VARIOUS POSITIONS, while Last Month Of The Year is a blues traditional. On the cd booklet this song is credited only as Hallelujah.

I heard there was a secret chord
that David played and it pleased the Lord
But you don't really care for music, do you?
Well it goes like this :
The fourth, the fifth, the minor fall and the major lift
The baffled king composing Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Well your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrough ya
She tied you to her kitchen chair
She broke your throne and she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

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

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

There was a time when you let me know
What's really going on below
But now you never show that to me do ya
But remember when I moved in you
And the holy dove was moving too
And every breath we drew was Hallelujah

Well, maybe there's a God above
But all I've ever learned from love
Was how to shoot at someone who outdrew ya
And it's not a cry that you hear at night
It's not somebody who's seen the light
It's a cold and it's a broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah,
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah...

[and here starts Last Month Of The Year]
Tell me what month was Jesus born in
Last month of the year
Tell me what month was Jesus born in
Last month of the year
Got January, January, March oh Lord
Got April, May and June Lord
You got July ,August
September, October and November
Got the twenty fifth day of
December that is the last month of the year

What month was Jesus born in
Last month of the year
What month was Jesus born in
Last month of the year
Got January, February, March oh Lord
Got April, May and June Lord
You got July, August,
September, October and November
Got the twenty fifth day of
December that is the last month of the year

(Thank you Melbourne)
