"In our lives there are our own glances to witness the grandeur. Everything in our lives including love, bondage, hopes, expectations, happiness, fortune arrive to us according to this our own passion."

I created this video during summer holidays, 2010 and posted this on my facebook (https://www.facebook.com/aswinda.dsharp) on December, 2010. First of all I must thank my cousin sister, Aswini Uswatte who helped me by playing piano. "Thanks a lot Aswini!" This is the famous song "Hallelujha" which is an "old time church song". It became more and more popular among the new generations worl wide soon after being incuded into "Shrek 1", the motion picture. Who ever happened to listen this song gets an infinite feeling that can't be expressed through words simply because of the melody and the lyrics themselves. I believe that this is a real mirror forth of the state of "real art" as this leads the listener "from delight to wisdom". 

Hallelujha

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
She cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah

Maybe 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

There was a time you let me know
What's real and going on below
But now you never show it to me, do you?

And remember when I moved in you
The holy dark was moving too
And every breath we drew was Hallelujah

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah

Maybe there's a God above
And all I ever learned from love
Was how to shoot at someone who outdrew you.

And it's not a cry you can hear at night
it's not somebody who's seen the light
it's a cold and it's a broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah 


I created a video or a slide show using my own photographs. This is it! :D 

Special thank goes to Aswini Uswatte
