    I heard there was a secret chord
    That David played, and it pleased the Lord
    You don't really care for music, do ya?
    It goes like this
    The fourth, the fifth
    The minor fall, the major lift
    The baffled king composing Hallelujah

    Your faith was strong but you needed proof
    You saw her bathing on the roof
    Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew ya
    She tied you
    To a kitchen chair
    She broke your throne, and she cut your hair
    And from your lips she drew Hallelujah

    Hallelujah, Hallelujah
    Hallelujah, Hallelujah

    Baby iv'e been here before,
    Iv'e seen this room and ive walked the floor,
    I used to live alone before i knew ya
    But ive seen your flag on the marble arch,
    Our love is not a victory march,
    It's a cold and its a broken hallelujah

    Hallelujah, Hallelujah
    Hallelujah, Hallelujah

    Maybe there's a God above,
    But all iv'e ever learnt from love,
    Is how to shoot somebody who outdrew ya,
    It's not a cry that u hear at night,
    It's not someone whos seen the light,
    It's a cold and broken hallelujah

    Hallelujah, Hallelujah
    Hallelujah, Hallelujah
    Hallelujah, Hallelujah
    Hallelujah, Hallelujah
    Hallelujah, Hallelujah

      I have to say, even though I absolutely adore Jeff Buckley's version and Rufus Wainwright's version, I love this one even more, it's got something extra, but I can't quite put my finger on it. Its given tonnes more meaning when KD sings it for some reason, and this version is a tad slower than the others I've heard. Anyway, I love this song! and I would advise anybody who likes this song by any other performer to give this version a listen!
