    Lyrics

    Now 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, and she cut your hair
    And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah

    Hallelujah
    Hallelujah
    Hallelujah
    Hallelujah

    You'll say I've took the name in vain,
    But I dont even know the name,
    But if I did, well, really whats it to you?
    There's a blaze of light in every word
    It doesnt matter which you heard
    the holy or the broken Hallelujah

    Hallelujah
    Hallelujah
    Hallelujah
    Hallelujah

    I did my best, it wasnt much
    I couldnt feel, so I tried to touch
    I've told the truth, I didnt come to fool you.
    And even though it all went wrong,
    I'll stand before the Lord of Song
    With nothing on my *tongue* but Hallelujah

    Hallelujah
    Hallelujah
    Hallelujah
    Hallelujah

    Hallelujah
    Hallelujah
    Hallelujah
    Hallelujah

    Hallelujah
    Hallelujah
    Hallelujah
    Hallelujah

    Hallelujah
    Hallelujah
    Hallelujah
    Hallelujah
