Imogen Heap – Hallelujah lyrics

I heard there was a secret cord
That David played and it pleased the lord
But you don't really care for music do you

And it goes like this the fourth the fifth
The minor fall and the major lift
The baffled king composing


Well your faith was strong
But you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty in the moonlight overthrew you
And she tied you to her kitchen chair
And she broke your thrown
And she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew a hallelujah

Baby I've been here before
I've seen this room and I've walked this floor
You know, I used to live alone before I knew you

And I've seen your flag on the marble arch
And love is not a victory march
It's a cold and it's a broken hallelujah

Hallelujah, hallelujah
Hallelujah, hallelujah

There was a time when you let me know
What's really going on below
But now you never show that to me, do you?

But Remember when I moved in you
And The Holy dove was moving too
And every breath we drew was hallelujah

Hallelujah, hallelujah
Hallelujah, hallelujah
