Legacy

legacy

We all leave a legacy of some sort. Its up to those we come in contact with to pick up our positive qualities and carry them on.

I went to a funeral for a friend yesterday. Its been 40 years since I first smelled one of his cigars. They played the pipes and then this (below) ……you were a good Scotsman Johnny.

k.d. singing Leoard Cohen’s classic live at the Winnipeg Juno Awards. If all the world’s a stage then the barefoot performance on this one should be viewed as magnificent. It goes like this: the fourth, the fifth, the minor chord the major lift. Then it’s done.

k.d. lang – Halleluhlah – 2005

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 a kitchen chair

She broke your throne, and she cut your hair

And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

You say I took the name in vain

I don’t even know the name

But if I did, well really, what’s it to ya?

There’s a blaze of light in every word

It doesn’t matter which you heard

The holy or the 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 ya

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

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Hallelujah
