I've heard the was a secret chord
That David played and it pleased the Lord
But you don't really care for music do you?
Well it goes like this  
The forth 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 over through you
She tied you to her kitchen chair
She broke your throne and she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Baby I've been here before
I've seen this room and Ive walked this floor
I used to live along before I knew ya
And I've seen your flag on the marble arch
But love is not a victory march
It's a cold and it's a broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

There was a time when you let me know
Whats really going on below
But now you never show that it 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, Maybe there's a God above
But all I've ever learned from love
Was how to shoot somebody who out drew ya
It's not a cry that you hear at night
It's not somebody whos seen the light
It's a cold and it's a broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah,
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah....
