Now 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


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
You’ll say I’ve took the name in vain,
But I dont even know the name,
But if I did, well, really whats it to you?
There’s a blaze of light in every word
It doesnt matter which you heard
the holy or the broken Hallelujah
I did my best, it wasnt much
I couldnt feel, so I tried to touch
I’ve told the truth, I didnt come to fool you.
And even though it all went wrong,
I’ll stand before the Lord of Song
With nothing on my *tongue* but Hallelujah
