Subject: RE: Lyr Add: HALLELUJAH by Leonard Cohen
Sorry Pete, there's nothing 'veiled' about :

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

especially if you're even slightly familiar with the themes of Cohen's work. Next someone will come along and they always thought 'Sisters of Mercy' is about nuns.
