C  Am  C Am

C                                         Am
Now I've heard there was a secret chord

        C                                Am
That David played, and it pleased the Lord

       F                        G                    C          G
But you don't really care for music, do you?

   C                                 F               G
Well it goes like this the fourth, the fifth

   Am                         F
The minor fall, the major lift

        G                 E7                    Am
The baffled king composing Hallelujah

      F               Am             F              C     G  C     Am C Am
Hallelujah Hallelujah Hallelujah Hallelu-------jah

Your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew you
She tied youTo 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 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 really going on below
But now you never show it to me, do you?
And remember when I moved in you
The holy dove was moving too
And every breath we drew was Hallelujah

 

Hallelujah, Hallelujah Hallelujah, Hallelujah

 

 

Maybe thereís a God above
But all Iíve ever learned from love
Was how to shoot at someone who outdrew you
Itís not a cry you can hear at night
Itís not somebody who has seen the light
Itís a cold and itís a broken Hallelujah

 

Hallelujah, Hallelujah Hallelujah, Hallelujah

 

 

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

 

Hallelujah, Hallelujah Hallelujah, Hallelujah

 

 

I did my best, it wasn't much
I couldn't feel, so I tried to touch
I've told the truth, I didn't come to fool you
And even though
It all went wrong
I'll stand before the Lord of Song
With nothing on my tongue but Hallelujah

 

Hallelujah, Hallelujah Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah Hallelujah, Hallelujah
