I’ve heard there was a sacred 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 fourth,the fifth
The minor fall and the major lift
The baffled king composing halleluyah

Halleluyah, halleluyah, halleluyah, halleluyah

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

Well,maybe there’s a God above
But all I ever learnt from love
Was how to shoot somebody who outdrew you
And its not a cry that you hear at night
Its not somebody who’s seen the light
Its a cold and its a broken halleluyah

Hey baby,i’ve been here before, I’ve seen this room and i’ve walked this floor
You know i used to live alone before i knew you
And i’ve seen your flag on the morn alert
And love is not a victory march, Its a cold and its a broken halleluyah

Well there was a time that you let me know, Its really going long below
But now you never show that to me,do you
And remember when i moved in you,the holy dove was moving too
And every breath we drew was halleluyah

I did my best, it wasnt much
I couldnt feel so i tried to touch
I told the truth,i didnt come to fool you
And even though it all went wrong
I’ll stand before the lord of songs
With nothing on my tongue but halleluyah

You told me that it was all okay
That this would all be o’er one day
But you dont really know that,do you?
So,this is what you get from lying
That pain is what’s meant to hurt so don’t go saying
I broke your heart when you mean halleluyah!
