Paramore – Hallelujah lyrics
Somehow everything's gonna fall right into place
If we only had a way to make it all
Fall faster everyday
If only time flew like a dove
We gotta make it fly faster than I'm falling in love


This time we're not giving up
Let's make it last forever
Screaming "hallelujah"
We'll make it last forever


Holding onto patience, wearing thin
I can't force these eyes to see the end
If only time flew like a dove
We could watch it fly and just keep looking on

This time we're not giving up
Let's make it last forever
Screaming "hallelujah"
We'll make it last forever

And we've got time on our hands
And we've got, got nothing but time on our hands
Got nothing but, got nothing but
Got nothing but time on our hands


This time we're not giving up
Oh, let's make it last forever
Screaming "hallelujah"
"hallelujah"
"hallelujah"

    This song is awesome and one of my Paramore favorites.
    It's a celebration of youth and love. It's about falling down and getting hurt, having problems, maybe in a relationship, but picking yourself back up and pressing on: "This time we're not giving up / Let's make it last forever." The whole song is pumped full of life and optimism. The chorus sings "hallelujah", which is literally an ecstatic praise to God, but it's also used to express joy without being religious. And the line "we've got nothing but time on our hands" isn't saying that 'we've got time, so let's waste it', it means that we need to live every moment in its fullest. I just love it.
