Rufus Wainwright - Hallelujah

English

Hallelujah

I've heard there was
A secret chord
That David played, and
It pleased 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
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 overthrew you
She tied you to a kitchen chair
She broke your throne
And she cut your hair
And from your lips
She drew the Hallelujah
 
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
 
Maybe I've been here before
I know this room
I've walked this floor
I used to live alone
Before I knew you
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
 
There was a time
You let me know
What's real and going on below
But now you never show
It to me, do you?
I remember when
I moved in, you
Your holy dark
Was moving too
And every breath we drew
Was Hallelujah
 
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
 
Maybe there's a God above
And all I ever
Learned from love
Was how to shoot
At someone
Who outdrew you
It's not a cry
You can hear at night
It's not somebody
Who's seen the light
It's a cold and
It's a broken Hallelujah
 
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
 
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
