I have been unfaithful
I have been untrue
How'd I find the road that
Brought me back to you?

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

In this crowded city
I was so alone
Stranger to my own eyes
Heart without a home

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

On the riverside drive
On the red of night
In the churches of Brooklyn
Underneath the Chelsea lights
Up in Battery Park
And up in Morningside Heights

Hallelujah

Suns are in the sky now
Suns are in my veins
Throw me in the fire now
Love is what remains

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
