歲月詩歌 (6)<br>





Prayer is translation. A man translates himself into a child
asking for all there is in a language he has barely mastered.

-- Leonard Cohen



" Hallelujah " 是柯恩曲譜中很著名的一首經典曲目
至今被180多位世界知名的歌手翻唱過
柯恩一共寫了八十幾行句子,塗塗改改,花了一年才完成
有一回,他和 Bob Dylan 聊天
狄倫告訴柯恩,他寫一首曲子平均大約15分鐘
柯恩只有傻傻地苦笑 ...

如果你細聽這首歌詞
你也會傻傻地苦笑
在柯恩塗塗改改之下
Hallelujah 並不像教堂裡的聖歌
也不是一個學名叫"自閒"的禪修者祈禱梵唱
倒更像是一個老邁的 Beatnik 回首當年
對身體與情慾的渴望及失落
發出曖昧的唏噓與禮讚....




Hallelujah / John Cale



Hallelujah / Susana and the Magical Orchestra



Hallelujah / Jeff Buckley



I've heard there was a secret chord
that David played, and it pleased the Lord
But you don't really care for music, Do you?
It goes like this, the fourth, the fifth
The minor Fall, The major lift,
The baffled king composing, hallelujah

Your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty in the moonlight overthrew you
She tied you to a kitchen chair, she broke your throne
she cut your hair and from your lips she drew the halleujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

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

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

There was a time you let me know
What's real and going on below
but now you never show it to me, do you?
And remember when I moved in you
the holy dove was moving too
And every breath we drew was Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Maybe there's a God above
And all I ever learned from love
Was how to shoot at somebody who outdrew you
It's not a cry you can hear at night
It's not somebody who's seen the light
it's a cold and it's a broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah ....






Susanna's lyric :

......
......

You say I took the name in vain
Well I don't even know the name
But if I did, well really, what's it to you
There's a blaze of light in every word
It doesn't matter which you heard
The holy or the broken Hallelujah

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

Hallelujah, Hallelujah ....











Apocalypse / Ilija Bosilj





















White flower / Ivan Rabuzin
