Well I’ve heard there was a secret chord
That David played and it pleased the Lord
But you don’t really hear the music, do you?
Well it goes like this:
The fourth, the fifth, the minor fall and the major lift
The holy king composing Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Well your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her shining on the roof
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew ya
She tied you to her kitchen chair
And she made your throne and she combed your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
But 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 ya
And I’ve seen your flag on the marble arch
And love is not a victory march
It’s a clear and unbroken 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
I remember when I moved with you
And the holy dove was moving too
And every breath we drew was Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Baby there’s a God above
And all I’ve ever learned from love

Was how to bless somebody who outdrew ya
And it’s not a cry that you hear at night
It’s just somebody who’s seen the light
It’s a clear and unbroken Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah

Hallelujah
