So there was this little program on the other night called Hope for Haiti. I don't know if anyone watched it or not, but I sure did. As much as we want to raise the fight about not helping the people here in OUR country, its definatley heartbreaking to see all the kids and children that were affected with the earthquake and all its aftermath. So yes I watched as celebrities preformed and manned the phones. But there was one performance that just moved me.

I have always used music as a coping mechanism in my life. I have always been horrible with words so I always found that a sweet melody or moving lyrics helped me feel like I wasn't the only one out there. Weither I am sad, happy, feeling sultry, or feeling down, music is always there.

So I actually started to cry when Justin Timberlake and Matt Morris performed Hallalujah. I am still trying to interpet the words actually. But their voices and the melody was just SO moving. So very beautiful. So tonight, I post the lyrics to the song. Please if you buy anything in the next few days, buy this song. Its available on itunes for .99 cents and all proceeds benefit the several charaties that are helping with the Haiti disaster.

Hallelujah (covered by Justin Timberlake and Matt Morris)

Now I've heard that theres 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 baffeled 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, and she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Maybe theres a God above
But all I've ever learned from love
was how to shoot somebody who outdrew ya
And its night a cry that you hear at night
It's not somebody thats seen the light
It's a cold and it's a broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
