Take your last step towards heaven
And its glow
Take your last breath of sunlight,
Don't let it go
Take your last look to remember now,
So that you know

I wont let you fade from no minds
I wont let you fade from no minds
Hey hey now
I wont let you fade from no minds

Hallelujah for these eyes to see your painted life
Hallelujah for the touch of skin to skin with mine
Hallelujah for this mind that keeps our souls combined
Hallelujah for this life that let me be your child

Have your mind,
have your strength to stay alive
And keep your eyes open with mine

You followed the road for the angels and you left me behind
A face without words can last a lifetime but it's never the same
So, don't say goodbyes that last forever
Hold on just for a while
but I'll be by to see you some day soon now
Please hold on tonight
oh cause I'm fallin, I don't know why


Hallelujah for these eyes to see your painted life
Hallelujah for the touch now of skin to skin with mine
Hallelujah for this mind that keeps our souls combined
Hallelujah for this life that let me be your child

Hallelujah, to be a part of your life
To see inside of all your smiles
You're a traffic light of fire
You're a man who I believe will never die

    General CommentOmg, such an amazingly powerful song!
    I'm surprised this is the first comment =P
    I think its about her dad, who died of cancer
    I love the way Gin Wigmore has managed to capture the grief of losing her father, but in such a mature and meaningful way
    My favourite part is
    "So, don't say goodbyes that last forever
    Hold on just for a while
    but I'll be by to see you some day soon now
    Please hold on tonight
    oh cause I'm fallin, I don't know why"
    Very emotional, I love it
    I don't know how i found it, but i'm glad i did, I can't stop listening to it =)
    Well done.

    General CommentFrom wikipedia: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/…

    "While in Argentina at age 16, her father died of cancer. Upon her return to New Zealand, she articulated in song, the pain of losing her father. One of those early penned songs, “Hallelujah”, won the US-based International Songwriting Competition in 2004[4], when she beat 11,000 songwriting aspirants from 77 countries to become the youngest and only unsigned Grand Prize winner in the history of the ISC. "Hallelujah" was also featured in the season 6 finale of One Tree Hill.

    “Hallelujah was my way of telling my family I had dealt with dad's passing and honestly, I didn't want to share these feelings with anyone else. I wanted the moment for myself and my family.” That moment is now the poignant and potent centrepiece of Extended Play her five-track debut, set to be released by Island Records Australia on August 2nd, 2008.""


    Great song
