Rufus Wainwright – Hallelujah

    I've heard there was a secret chord
    That David played and it pleased the Lord
    But don't really care for music, do you?

    It goes like this... The fourth, the fifth
    The minor fall
    The major lift
    The baffled King composing Hallelujah

    Hallelujah (4x)

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

    She tied you to a chair
    She broke your throne
    She cut your hair
    And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah

    Hallelujah (4x)

    Maybe I have been here before
    I know this room, I've walked this floor
    I used to live alone I knew you

    I've seen your flag on the marble arch
    Love is not a victory march
    It's a and it's a broken Hallelujah

    Hallelujah (4x)

    There was a time you let me know
    What's real and going on below
    But now you never show it to me, do you?

    And remember I moved in you
    The holy dark was moving too
    And every breath we drew was Hallelujah

    Hallelujah (4x)

    Maybe there's a above
    And all I ever learned from love
    Was how to shoot at someone who outdrew you.

    And it's not a cry you can hear at
    it's not somebody who's seen the light
    it's a cold and it's a broken Hallelujah

    Hallelujah (8x)
