Padre Kelly canta «Hallelujah» di Leonard Cohen

Father Ray Kelly

Sono rimasti senza parole gli sposini Chris e Lea O’Kane quando durante la cerimonia il parroco, Padre Ray Kelly ha improvvisamente intonato l’«Hallelujah» di Leonard Cohen.
Deliziati gli invitati come si può ascoltare dal video. È accaduto a Oldcastle, nella Contea di Meath.
Padre Kelly, 60 anni, ama la musica: «Mi piace cantare, la musica è parte della famiglia, è sempre stato nei nostri geni».


Hallelujah di Leonard Cohen testo

Well 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
Well your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew ya
She tied you to her kitchen chair
And she broke your throne and she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah
But baby I’ve been here before
I’ve seen this room and I’ve walked this floor
You know, I used to live alone before I knew ya
And I’ve seen your flag on the marble arch
And love is not a victory march
It’s a cold and it’s a broken 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 ya
But remember when I moved in you
And the holy dove was moving too
And every breath we drew was Hallelujah
Maybe there’s a God above
But all I’ve ever learned from love
Was how to shoot somebody who outdrew ya
And 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
