Thread Name: Lyr Add: Hallelujah (Leonard Cohen)
Subject: RE: Lyr Add: HALLELUJAH by Leonard Cohen
Hallelujah is remarkably pliable text that means many things to many people. But Cohen sometimes spoke how he created a 'secular hallelujah', in spite of the rich biblical references. And, given the recurring themes of his work, I think it is not too hard to figure out what this particular verse is about.
