Hallelujah

In the style of

Rufus Wainwright

Lyrics

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
composin'
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
she cut your hair
and from your lips
she drew
the hallelujah

hallelujah
hallelujah
hallelujah
hallelujah

maybe i have 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

and remember
when i moved in you
the holy dark
was movin' 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

and 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
