"Hallelujah (Leonard Cohen cover)" as written by Leonard Cohen and Theresa Christina Calonge De Sa Mattos....
Well, I heard there was a secret chord
That David played to please the Lord
But you don't really care for music, do you?

Well, it goes like this the fourth, the fifth
The minor fall and the major lift
The baffled king composing Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Well, your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew you

And she tied you to her kitchen chair
She broke your throne and she cut your hair
And from the lips she drew the Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Yeah, baby, I've been here before
I've seen this room and I've walked this floor
I used to live alone before I knew you

And I've seen your flag on that marble arch
Your love is not a victory march
It's a cold and it's a broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Well, there was a time when you let me know
What was going on below
Now you don't never show that to me, do you?

But remember when I moved in you
And the holy dove was moving too
And every breath we drew was Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Well, now maybe there's a God above
But all I've ever learned from love
Was how to shoot somebody who outdrew you

And it's not your cry that I hear at night, no
It's not someone who's seen the light
It's a cold and it's a broken Hallelujah

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