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 ya'
it goes like this
the fourth, the fifth
the minor fall, and 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 ya'
she tied you to a kitchen chair
she broke your throne, and she cut your hair
and from your lips she drew the Hallelujah

baby I have been here before
I know this room, I've walked this floor
I used to live alone before I knew Ya'
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 really going on below
but now you never show it to me, do Ya'
and remember when I moved in with you
the holy dove was movin' too
And every breath we drew was Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah

Maybe there's a god above
but all I've ever learned from love
was how to shoot at somebody who outdrew Ya'
It's not a cry you can hear at night
It's not somebody who has seen the light
It's a cold at it'sa broken Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
