Mi canción favorita

Sinceramente no tengo ni idea de por que amo a esta canción, pero cada vez que la escucho me gusta más. Describe totalmente el "Me llega". Además la interpretaron dos de mis participantes favoritos de American Idol: Jason Castro y Lee Dewyze. Este último fue el ganador de la última temporada y en cuanto a Jason, quedó en tercer lugar hace un par de temporadas.
La canción es Hallelujah de Leonard Cohen, fue creada en 1984 y es la canción de Cohen con más covers. Mi cover favorito es el de Jeff Buckley, es más, siempre escucho ésta en lugar de la original.
Aquí les dejo la letra:

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?
well it goes like this the fourth, the fifth
the minor fall and the major lift
the baffled king composing hallelujah

hallelujah...

well your faith was strong but you needed proof
you saw her bathing on the roof
her beauty and the moonlight overthrew you
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...

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 you
I've seen your flag on the marble arch
but love is not a victory march
it's a cold and it's a broken hallelujah

hallelujah...

well there was a time when you let me know
what's really going on below
but now you never show that 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

well, maybe there's a god above
but all I've ever learned from love
was how to shoot somebody who outdrew you
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...
