Damien Rice – Delicate lyrics

We might kiss when we are alone
When nobody's watching
We might take it home
We might make out when nobody's there
It's not that we're scared
It's just that it's delicate

So why do you fill my sorrow
With the words you've borrowed
From the only place you've know
And why do you sing Hallelujah
If it means nothing to you
Why do you sing with me at all?

We might live like never before
When there's nothing to give
Well how can we ask for more
We might make love in some sacred place
The look on your face is delicate

So why do you fill my sorrow
With the words you've borrowed
From the only place you've know
And why do you sing Hallelujah
If it means nothing to you
Why do you sing with me at all?

So why do you fill my sorrow
With the words you've borrowed
From the only place you've know
And why do you sing Hallelujah
If it means nothing to you
Why do you sing with me at all?

    I personally think the song is about 2 people in some sort of relationship but 1 of them likes the other person a lot less, & the relationship doesn't last. I think maybe the person who was less in love really wanted to love whoever is singing and they really tried their best which I think is expressed with "So why'd you fill my sorrow / with the words you've borrowed" - the less-in-love person only acted how they thought someone in love was supposed to act, but it was never something that came to them. Maybe the less-in-love person realised that they could never love the other in the way that they wanted so they ended the relationship, and the singer wonders "and why'd you sing hallelujah /if it means nothing to ya/ why'd you sing with me at all?" The singer wants to know why the person bothered with them at all if they never really loved them
