(I like her mic. Anybody know what type it is?)
Eric M commented on YT:
its not a song about religion. it's a love song.. a very dark love song about a disconnected love. recalling making love, "And remember when I moved in you","and every breath we drew was hallelujah"... contrasting their intimacy to present times "There was a time when you let me know, What's really going on below, But now you never show it to me, do you?" if it sounds dirty, it is. that's why cohen is brilliant. amazingly honest, graphic, yet eloquent, beautiful and relate-able.
Notice that Cohen himself has stopped singing "ya" for "you", to make it rhyme (orig version), while the cover singers still do. When you're the man himself, you can get away with more.
If you like this song, don't miss these versions.
