Kathryn Williams – Hallelujah lyrics

(Leonard Cohen)

Well 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 you?

Well it goes like this
The fourth, the fifth
The minor chord and the major lift.
The baffled king composing Hallelujah.

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew you

And she tied you
To her kitchen chair,
Broke your throne, and cut your hair.
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah .

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Baby, I've been here before
I know 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,
Love's not some kind of victory march,
It's a cold and 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 it to me, do you?

But I remember when I moved in you,
Holy dove was moving too,
And every breath we drew was Hallelujah.

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
