My workshop : Some of Manuela's favorite

Hello my friends,

Here is a song I love, I wanted to sing it but as here in Turkey I can not open youtube, i didn't find a karaoke version. So, here is the song anyway, i am happy to share it with you and i hope you will enjoy it. Leonard Cohen sung it first, but though i like him very much, i prefer Jeff Buckley's version as it is softer.


Jeff Buckley - Hallelujah Mplay

Halleluyah Jeff Buckley


I 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 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 


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 


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

  • Hallelujiah means praise, am I right?

    Music and Lyric is very nice.

    • Hello sweet Miley,

      Sometimes people use this "halleluyah  as muslins people say ""inch Allah"

      But in christian churches it doesn't certainly have this meaning, but don't ask me what it means :)) Thanks for stoping by dear Miley.

    • Good morning!

      Got it Ms. Manuela :). 

      Take care!


      Good Morninggggg Everybody,

      Manuela, Miley

  • Hello my singer friends,

    Here is a new song i really like a lot, when listening to it i have goosebumps !

    It's Purple rain by Prince , the only song i like from him.

    I never meant to cause you any sorrow.

    I never meant to cause you any pain.

I only wanted to one time see you laughing.

    I only wanted to see you laughing in the purple rain.


Purple rain, Purple rain 
Purple rain,

    Purple rain
 Purple rain, Purple rain

    I only wanted to see you bathing in the purple rain.

    I never wanted to be your weekend lover.

    I only wanted to be some kind of friend.

Baby I could never steal you from another.

It's such a shame our friendship had to end.



Purple rain, Purple rain

    Purple rain, Purple rain 

    Purple rain, Purple rain

    I only wanted to see you underneath the purple rain.


Honey I know, I know, I know times are changing.

    It's time we all reach out for something new,

    That means you too.
You say you want a leader,

    But you can't seem to make up your mind.

I think you better close it,

    And let me guide you to the purple rain.



Purple rain, Purple rain

    Purple rain, Purple rain

    If you know what I'm singing about up here.

    C'mon raise your hand.

Purple rain,

    Purple rain

I only want to see you, only want to see you.

    • Dear Abril,

      Unfortunately I can not see your video, i am in Turkey now and my connection is far to be good,  I don't have access at youtube then I downloaded jeff's version on dailymotion but it seems now it didn't work. So i guess i won't be able to download songs for the next 2 months :( Thanks anyway.
