Alexandra Burke – Hallelujah lyrics

Well 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?
Well it goes like this
The fourth, the fifth
The minor fall and the major lift
The baffled king composing hallelujah


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


Well maybe there's a god above
But all I've ever learned from love
Was how to shoot somebody who'd out drew ya
And it's not a cry that you hear at night
It's not someone who's seen the light
It's a cold and it's a broken hallelujah

Hallelujah (x12)

    Ilove this song it is really cool and christmasy. Me and my band (the diamond girls)sing this and I get the realy jazzy bit and the ohhh ewwws it rocks I hope she has another hit! Not a ballard but a disco song like a new up beat song so people get a taste of what else she can do but if the watched the x factor people would know that but if they didn't then she could be bigger then leona and other bpeople in the charts!
