    Lyrics

    Well I heard there was a secret chord
    That David played and it pleased the Lord
    But you don't really care for music do you

    Well it goes like this
    The fourth, the fifth
    The minor fall and the major lift
    The baffled king composing hallelujah

    Hallelujah
    Hallelujah
    Hallelujah
    Hallelujah

    Well your faith was strong but you needed proof
    You saw her bathing on the roof
    Her beauty in the moonlight overthrew you

    And she tied you to her kitchen chair
    And she broke your throne and she cut your hair
    And from your lips she drew the hallelujah

    Hallelujah
    Hallelujah
    Hallelujah
    Hallelujah

    Well baby I've been here before
    I've seen this room and I've walked this floor
    You know I used to live alone before I knew you

    And I've seen your flag on the marble arch
    And love is not a victory march
    It's a cold and it's a broken hallelujah

    Hallelujah
    Hallelujah
    Hallelujah
    Hallelujah

    Well there was a time when you let me know
    What's really going on below
    But now you never show that to me do you

    But remember when I moved in you
    And the Holy Dove was moving too
    And every breath we drew was hallelujah

    Hallelujah
    Hallelujah
    Hallelujah
    Hallelujah

    Maybe there is a God above
    But all I've ever learned from love
    Was how to shoot somebody who outdrew you

    And it's not a cry that you 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

    Hallelujah
    Hallelujah
    Hallelujah
    Hallelujah
    Hallelujah
