Well I've heard there was a sacred chord
David played and it pleased the lord
But you don't really care for music, do ya?

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 up on the roof
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew you.

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

Hallelujah, hallelujah
Hallelujah, hallelujah

Well baby I have been here before
I've seen this room, and I've walked this floor
You know I used to live alone before I knew ya.

And I've seen your flag on the marble arch
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's really going on below
But now you never show that to me, do ya?

And remember when I moved in you
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 ever learned from love
Was how to shoot somebody who outdrew you.

And it's not a cry that you hear at night
It's not somebody who's seen the light
It's a cold and it's a broken hallelujah

Oo hallelujah, oo hallelujah
Hallelujah, hallelujah

Hallelujah, hallelujah
Hallelujah, hallelujah
