I 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.

Chorus: 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

Chorus

Maybe I've been here before
I know this room, I walked this floor
I used to live alone before I knew you
I've seen your flag on the marble arch
And love is not a victory march
It's a cold and it's a broken hallelujah

Chorus

Did my best and wasn't much
Couldn't feel so I tried to touch
I told the truth: I didn't come to fool you
And even though it all went wrong
Stand before the lord of song
With nothing on my tongue but hallelujah

Chorus
