Rick Tallis – Hallelujah lyrics

I’ve heard a child was crying that night
The world without a ray of light
But you don’t know how frightful it was, do you?
You’re trapped and left without a clue
You’re numb with cold and next to you
Your mother’s lips a silenced hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah…

Your faith is strong but your despair
Will sweep across the broken air
A tidal wave that’s certain to outdo you
You hold on to your mother’s hands
The frozen time, how still it stands
You close your eyes and hear no hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah…

Maybe you’ve been here before
When darkness locked your bedroom door
And filled your dreams with terror flowing through you
But now your mother’s hands are still
Your fear is here to stay
Until you’ve felt her touch there’ll be no hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah…

There was a time she let you know
She’d keep you close and watch you grow
She used to hold you tight to reassure you
But when the sky began to fall
Her magic was no help at all
And next to her is buried hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah…

Maybe there’s a God above
But crushed below you feel no love
The darkness and the silence will undo you
Then in the slowly healing sky
A flock of cranes will lift you high
Their song for you a glowing hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah…
