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

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

So baby I've been here before
I've seen this room and I've walked that floor
And I used to live alone before I knew you
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
