[Verse 1]

Now 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 ya?

It goes like this, the fourth, the fifth

The minor fall, the major lift

The baffled king composing “Hallelujah”

 

[Chorus]

Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah

 

[Verse 2]

Your faith was strong, but you needed proof

You saw her bathing on the roof

Her beauty in the moonlight overthrew ya

She tied you to a kitchen chair

She broke your throne and she cut your hair

And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah

 

[Chorus]

Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah

 

[Verse 3]

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 ya?

There’s a blaze of light in every word

It doesn’t matter which you heard

The holy or the broken Hallelujah

 

[Chorus]

Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah

 

[Verse 4]

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 ya

And even though it all went wrong

I’ll stand before the lord of song

With nothing on my tongue but hallelujah

 

[Chorus]

Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah

 

[Outro]

Hallelujah, Hallelujah

 

[Additional Lyrics]

Baby, I’ve been here before

I know this room, I’ve walked this floor

I used to live alone before I knew you

And 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

 

[Additional Lyrics]

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

 

[Additional Lyrics]

Maybe there’s a God above

But all I’ve ever learned from love

Was how to shoot at someone who outdrew you

And it’s not a cry that you hear at night

It’s not somebody who’s seen the light

It’s a cold and it’s a broken Hallelujah
