A Broken Hallelujah

Maybe this Leonard Cohen song has been covered more than 2,000 times because there is a secret chord, and the baffled and broken know what it is.


The world beat me up all day today, but singing along with K.D. Lang makes me feel better about it. Did you know there is a rarely sung seventh verse in the song? There is. So, if you had a day like mine, this is for you:

I did my best, it wasn’t much
I couldn’t feel, so I tried to touch
I’ve told the truth, I didn’t come to fool you
And even though it all went wrong
I’ll stand before the Lord of Song
With nothing on my tongue but Hallelujah
