I've been listening to the theme songs of classic Nickelodeon shows lately. From Zoey 101 to ICarly.

Regarding whether this is a "Christian song"...as others have said, it's about David and Bathsheba from the Bible, which is a story about perverse "love". She was married and apparently bathed on the roof of her house and David saw her. He succumbed to his lust for her, and after getting her pregnant, tragedy touched the lives of everyone involved. There is a part of the song, as is mentioned in other comments, that talks about how she drew a "Hallelujah" out of him while "in the act", which is probably Cohen noticing how people often scream OMG when doing it, and so he appears to be focusing on that ironic fact...people call out God's name when they are in the middle of doing something they should definitely not be doing. This song is about the irony of calling it "making love" when real love often has nothing to do with it. David loved God and God loved him, but that love was damaged by something often called "love" but which is really something else. Real love heals, it doesn't damage and destroy. Cohen is focusing in a nebulous way on the ironies related to love. The line about "she cut your hair" is a reference to another Bible story, Samson and Delilah, where Delilah accused Samson of not loving her because he wouldn't tell her the secret of his strength (which was due to his hair never having been cut--he was a Nazarite), when the only reason she wanted to know was so she could betray him. She used love as a pretense to exercise betrayal and hatred. Cohen mixes the S&D reference into the D&B storyline because it is a similar theme, of perverse, false, and broken love. If I am reading Cohen's intent correctly, saying "love is a cold and broken hallelujah" is saying that love isn't "the heat of passion", but it is the shame, remorse, and regret that leads to repentance and the reestablishment of real love. The lines "there was a time when you let me know what's really going on below" refers to the strong relationship David had with ':Elohhiym (God) before his great sin, and "...but now you never show that to me, do you?" refers to the change in their relationship afterwards. David remembers the good times: "Remember when I moved in you" refers to the fact that until he sinned, everything David did was according to YHWH's will and Spirit (the holy dove)...everything, even every breath, was to the praise of God--Hallelu Yah means "Praise YaH!" So, it isn't directly a Christian song--especially since Cohen, who wrote the song, was Jewish; his last name, Cohen comes from the Hebrew word for "priest"--but it draws on the Bible and attempts to use David's story to put forward the idea that love isn't really the Westernized Hollywood Romance crap that we've been sold. It's something that is more precious, and delicate, and worthy of protecting, even to the point and especially when the love is damaged and grows cold, because the real thing is worth it.

The world was on fire and no one could save me but you. It's strange what desire will make foolish people do. I never dreamed that I'd meet somebody like you. And I never dreamed that I'd lose somebody like you. No, I don't want to fall in love (this girl is only gonna break your heart) No, I don't want to fall in love (this girl is only gonna break your heart) With you, with you (this girl is only gonna break your heart) What a wicked game you play to make me feel this way. What a wicked thing to do, to let me dream of you. What a wicked thing to say, you never felt this way. What a wicked thing to do, to make me dream of you And I wanna fall in love (this girl is only gonna break your heart) No, I wanna fall in love (this girl is only gonna break your heart) With you. The world was on fire and no one could save me but you. It's strange what desire will make foolish people do. I never dreamed that I'd love somebody like you.

(this girl is only gonna break your heart) (this girl is only gonna break your heart) Nobody loves no one.

I believe in you, my faith in you will never falter. never. I breathe you.

Help

I have done it again

I have been here many times before

Hurt myself again today

And the worst part is there's no one else to blame

Be my friend

Hold me, wrap me up

Enfold me, I am small

And needy, warm me up

And breathe me

Ouch, I have lost myself again

Lost myself and I am nowhere to be found

Yeah, I think that I might break

Lost myself again and I feel unsafe

Be my friend

Hold me, wrap me up

Enfold me, I am small

And needy, warm me up

And breathe me

Be my friend

Hold me, wrap me up

Enfold me, I am small

And needy, warm me up

And breathe me

You love bands when they're playing hard

You want more and you want it fast

They put you down, they say I'm wrong

You tacky thing, you put them on

Rebel Rebel, your face is a mess

Rebel Rebel, how could they know?

Hot tramp, I love you so!

Doo doo doo-doo doo doo doo doo

You've got your mother in a whirl 'cause she's

Not sure if you're a boy or a girl

Hey babe, your hair's alright

Hey babe, let's stay out tonight

You like me, and I like it all

We like dancing and we look divine

You love bands when they're playing hard

You want more and you want it fast

They put you down, they say I'm wrong

You tacky thing, you put them on

Rebel Rebel, you've torn your dress

Rebel Rebel, your face is a mess

Rebel Rebel, how could they know?

Hot tramp, I love you so!
