    Lyrics

    I've heard there was 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 baffled 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, she cut your hair
    And from your lips she drew the hallelujah

    Hallelujah, hallelujah
    Hallelujah, hallelujah

    Maybe I've 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

    Hallelujah, hallelujah
    Hallelujah, hallelujah

    There was a time you let me know
    What's real and going on below
    But now you never show it to me, do you?

    And remember when I moved in you?
    The holy dark was moving too
    And every breath we drew was hallelujah

    Hallelujah, hallelujah
    Hallelujah, hallelujah

    Maybe there's a God above
    And all I ever learned from love
    Was how to shoot at someone who outdrew you

    And it's not a cry you can hear at night
    It's not somebody who's seen the light
    It's a cold and it's a broken hallelujah

    Hallelujah, hallelujah
    Hallelujah, hallelujah

    Hallelujah, hallelujah
    Hallelujah, hallelujah
