Hallelujah

killingsoftly: (Goodbye)
I heard there was a secret chord
That David played to please the Lord
But you don't really care for music, do ya?
It goes like this: the fourth, the fifth
The minor fall, the major lift
The baffled king composing - Hallelujah

Your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew ya
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
Hallelu----jah

You say I took the name in vain
Well, I don't even know the name
But if I did, well really, what's it to ya?
There's a blaze of light in every word
It doesn't matter what you heard
The holy or the broken - Hallelujah

I did my best - that wasn't much
I couldn't feel, so I learned to touch
I told the truth - I didn't come to fool ya
And even though it all went wrong
I'll stand before the Lord of song
With nothing on my lips but Hallelujah

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelu----jah

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelu----jah

Well, maybe there's a God above
But all I ever learned from love
Was how to shoot at someone who outdrew ya
And it's no complaint you hear tonight
It's not some pilgrim who's seen the light
It's a cold and broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelu----jah

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelu----jah
