TOWER OF SONG 3


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 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

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah.

Baby, I’ve 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 really going on below,
Ah but now you never show it to me, do you?

But I 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,
But all I’ve ever learned from love
Is how to shoot at someone who outdrew you.

It’s not a cry that you hear tonight,
It’s not somebody who have seen the light
It’s a cold and it’s a broken Hallelujah.

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah.

I did my best, it wasn’t much.
I couldn’t feel, so I learned to touch.
I’ve told the truth, I didn’t come all this way to fool you.

And even tough it all went wrong
I’ll stand right here before the Lord of Song
With nothing on my lips but Hallelujah.

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah.
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah.
