Hallelujah

Jeff Buckley singing Hallelujah

“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 in 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

Baby I’ve been here before
I’ve seen this room, and I’ve walked this floor
I used to live alone before I knew Ya…

I’ve seen your flag on the marble arch
And love is not a victory march
It’s a calling, it’s a broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Cause there was a time when you let me know
What’s really going on below
But now you never show that to me, do you?

Remember when I moved in you
and the holy dove was moving too
And every breath we drew was Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Maybe there’s a God above
All I’ve ever learned from love
was how to shoot somebody who outdrew you

It’s not a cry that you hear at night
It’s not somebody seen the light
It’s a calling, it’s a broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah
