"Hallelujah" as written by and Hayley Nichole/farro Williams....
Somehow everything's gonna fall right into place
If we only had a way to make it all fall faster everyday
If only time flew like a dove
We gotta make it fly faster than I'm falling in love

This time we're not giving up
Let's make it last forever
Screaming "Hallelujah"
We'll make it last forever

Holding onto patience, wearing thin
I can't force these eyes to see the end
If only time flew like a dove
We could watch it fly and just keep looking on

This time we're not giving up
Let's make it last forever
Screaming "Hallelujah"
We'll make it last forever

And we've got time on our hands
And we've got, got nothing but time on our hands
Got nothing but, got nothing but
Got nothing but time on our hands

This time we're not giving up
Oh, let's make it last forever
Screaming hallelujah (Hallelujah)
Hallelujah

    General CommentI think this song is about how two people aren't giving up on each other.
    And they're going to make it through anything.
    I love Paramore. <3

    MemoryThis song, to me, perfectly describes me and my boyfriend. our parents won't let us date because they don't like each other. Both of our families treat us like we don't matter. So my boyfriend is determined that one day we'll be out of here and he's going to take us away from here. So the line
    "somehow everything's gonna fall right into place
    if we only had a way to make it all fall faster everyday
    if only time flew like a dove
    we gotta make it fly faster than I'm falling in love"
    this explains how we have to wait to be together finally and we wish time would pass faster than how quickly we're falling in love. But that's only how the song applies to my life lol. I think it can mean lots of different things depending on the person listening to it.

    General CommentThis is probably wrong, but this is how I see this song.
    I think that this song is about hope and thinking really positively about things. It's maybe convincing herself that she needs to be patient, and it's about maybe how she is falling in love too fast, but she doesn't mind because she wants it to last. She has fallen fast and hard for someone and she knows that something good will happen, even though she can't see for sure that it will.
    No matter what happens, things are going to be alright.
    When she gets what she wants in the end, she knows that it will be great and everyhting that she could wish for.
    I love this song so much, it really cheers me up and helps me look on the brighter side of things.

    General CommentHeck out the acoustic version of this song her voice is sick. Shes a tiny little powerhouse and is one of the best voices ive heard in a while.

    General CommentI love this song!!!

    To me, it seems like it's giving out this message saying, you should be patient and holding on if you want to achieve such happiness.

    Also, it reminds me of somehow having found of something (let's say love) in one person that you may have seperated with before by circumstances, then, now not wanting to let go, thus "This time we're not giving up let's make it last forever.."


    It's such a sweet sweet song to warm my lil black heart ^_^

    General CommentGod, her voice just kills me sometimes. It's this song that I really can truely feel how strong it is. The chorus is amazing! But as for meaning I think of it as learning to be patient. Despite the desire to rush things, they have all the time in the world and just need to spend it wisely. Because when you are patient it makes things that much better.
