I had been thinking about doing a cover of something just for the fun of it, since I never do covers. I heard this song a few places here and there and I really liked every version of it. So I decided to cover Hallelujah originally written and performed by Leonard Cohen. If you've seen the movie Shrek, then you've heard this song cause it was used in that movie.
The lyrics I chose to use, out of the full song, were-

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
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah

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 a kitchen chair
She broke your throne, and she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Baby I have been here before
I know 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

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
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Goosebumps

I can not clearly express my love for this song. Your voice really suits the song and I just go to say that I love your voice! I'm sitting here with goosebumps, shivers down my spine and (I have to admit) a slight fangirl attack.
Good work, good sir, good work.
