Celtic Thunder – Hallelujah lyrics

Neil: I 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 and the major lift.
The baffled king composing hallelujah

Neil/Keith/Ryan: hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah

Keith: Well, 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 her kitchen chair,
And she broke your throne, and she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the hallelujah
Neil/Keith/Ryan: hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah

Neil/Keith/Ryan: Maybe there's a God above,
But all I've ever learned from love
Was how to shoot somebody who outdrew ya
It's not a cry that you hear at night,
It's not someone who has seen the light-
It's a cold and it's a broken hallelujah
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelu-
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah.
