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
Baby 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
There was a time you let me know
What's really going on below
But now you never show it to me, do you?
And remember when I moved in you
The holy dove was moving too
And every breath we drew was Hallelujah
Maybe there’s a God above
But all I’ve ever learned from love
Was how to shoot at someone who outdrew you
It’s not a cry you can hear at night
It’s not somebody who has seen the light
It’s a cold and it’s a broken 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 you?
There's a blaze of light
In every word
It doesn't matter which you heard
The holy or the broken Hallelujah

This story really touched my heart:
Dogs In Iraq & Afghanistan Receive Presents from Guide Dog Company
BLOOMFIELD, Conn. (CNN) --
An organization devoted to caring for dogs is hoping these gifts will brighten the holidays for military K-9s serving in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Fidelco Guide Dog Foundation donated some $2,000 -thousand in supplies including cooling vests for hot climates and "doggles" -- canine goggles which protect their eyes from sun and sand.
"So this is our way in the season of thanks and giving and hope and renewal to give back to the troops that have given so much for us. If we can help protect them by helping their canines, we have done our job," said Adirenne Sullivan of Fidelco.
Fidelco trains and provides guide dogs for the visually impaired.
The foundation says it understands the stresses on and the importance of military canines serving overseas.
