Song Lyrics

I’ve heard there was a secret chord
That David played to please the Lord
But you don’t really care for music, do you
It goes like this: the fourth, the fifth
The minor fall, the major lift
The baffled king composed Hallelujah


Your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew you
She tied you to a kitchen chair
She broke your throne, she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah

Hallelujah, hallelujah
Hallelujah, hallelujah


You say I took the Name in vain
Well I don’t even know the name
But if I did, well, really, what’s it to you
There’s a blaze of light in every word
It doesn’t matter which you heard
The holy, or the broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah, hallelujah


I did my best, it wasn’t much
I couldn’t feel, so I learned to touch
I’ve told the truth, I didn’t come to fool you
And even though all went wrong
I’ll stand before the Lord of Song
With nothing on my lips but Hallelujah

Hallelujah, hallelujah
Hallelujah, hallelujah
Hallelujah, hallelujah
Hallelujah, hallelujah

Now maybe there’s a God above
But all I ever learned from love
Was how to shoot at someone who outdrew you
And it’s no complaint you hear tonight
It’s not some pilgrim who’s seen the light
It’s a cold and broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah, hallelujah
Hallelujah, hallelujah
Hallelujah, hallelujah
Hallelujah, hallelujah

Hallelujah, hallelujah
Hallelujah, hallelujah
