    A parody of Jeff Buckley/Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" directed at Dr. John Watson after the fall.

    Lyrics and voice are mine, I obviously claim no ownership over melody, etc.

    EDIT: Ran out of downloads on Soundcloud. For those who asked, you can now download it on media fire here- http://www.mediafire.com/?tddwukmw204s1kt

    LYRICS for those that asked:

    It's stuck in your head
    a dissonant chord
    that sherlock played
    and you yelled 'no more'
    he said 'you don't really care for music, do you?'
    but if you had known it'd go like this
    you'd have put up with every little bit
    now you know he was composing hallelujah

    [Hallelujah x4]

    See you had your faith, Needed no proof
    Till you saw him standing on the roof
    And "goodbye, john" they were his last words to you
    And the second he stepped off you knew
    He took your heart, broke it in two
    and from your lips he drew the hallelujah

    [hallelujah x4]

    And John you know you've been here before
    But therapy can't help anymore
    You think that you can't live alone
    but somehow you do
    There's a yellow face upon the wall
    But it's not a smile no, not at all
    It's a cold and it's a broken hallelujah

    [hallelujah x4]

    Was there a time when he let you know,
    what was really going on below?
    See now you start to question, what was he to you?
    Remember when he moved in with you
    and your whole world started moving too
    and every breath you drew was hallelujah

    [hallelujah x4]

    Maybe there's a god above
    but you learned all you could from love
    And shooting at the sun won't bring him back to you
    You know that even when you were so alone
    he picked you up, carried you home
    after everything you owe him hallelujah

    [hallelujah x8]

      This part gives me goosebumps. "And from your lips he drew the hallelujah..." This is amazing. Go ahead and tell us if you manage to put it up for download elsewhere.

      The download limit has been reached, so I was wondering if you might put the track on MediaFire? It's just so beautiful and I know quite a few others who would like to download it too :3
