well i heard there was this secret chord
that david played and it pleased the lord
but you don't care too much for music do ya?

well it goes like this
the fourth and the fifth
the minor falling comes the major lift
the baffled king composing
hallelujah

ah your faith was strong
but you needed proof
and you saw her bathing on the roof
ah her beauty and the moonlight
it overthrew ya
and she tied ya to her kitchen chair
she broke your throne
and then she cut your hair
and from your lips she drew
hallelujah

oh there was a time
when you would let me know
what is really going on below
but now you never show that to me do ya?
oh but remember when i moved in you
and the holy dove
it was movin to
and every breath we drew was
hallelujah

oh i did my best
but you know it was not much
i couldn't feel
so then i just tried to touch
i wouldn't lie
did not come here to fool ya
but i swear even when it all went wrong
i still stand before the lord of song
with nothin on my tongue but
hallelujah

oh well maybe there is a god above
but you know
all we ever seem to learn from love
is how to shoot somebody
who outdrew ya
and i tell ya
it ain't a cry you can hear at night
it ain't somebody who's seen the light
it's a cold and it's a broken
hallelujah

hallelujah
allelujah
hallelujah
