Hallelujah Lyrics

Now, 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?
It goes like this, the fourth, the fifth, the minor fall, 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
She tied you to a kitchen chair
She broke your throne and she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

O people I have been here before.
I know this room
And I've walked this floor
You see I used to live alone before I knew ya
And I've seen your flag on the marble arch
This isn't Love and this is not some kind of a victory march
It's a cold and it's a lonely

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

There was time you let me know
What's really going down below
But now you don't really show it to me, do you
I remember when I moved in you
And The holy touch she was moving too
And every single breath that we drew was

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Now Maybe there's a God above,
And all I ever learned from love
Was how to shoot at
somebody who outdrew ya.
And it's not a cry you hear at night
It's not some pilgrim
who claim to have seen the light
It's a cold and it's a very broken

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

I've done my best ,
I know it wasn't much
I couldn't feel so I learn to touch
I've told the truth

I didn't come here to London to fool you,
And even though it all went wrong
I'll stand right here before the lord of song
With nothing,nothing on my tongue but hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Leonard Cohen actually wrote more than 80 versus to this song...why....because a person can say hallelujah for many reasons touching on all our emotions.

Most haunting song.... I love it. However, the lyrics here are not the same as done on the Celtic Thunder CD. I love their version of Hallelujah.

Excuse me! HE WROTE IT!! And you should hope you can do half as well when you've lived so long! It was Great!

I always get the Rufus Wainwright version (which is actually in one of the Shrek movies!) in my head - but it's a folk song, meant to take on new lives and new meaning.

Beautiful song that always makes me stop whatever I am doing and remember the happy times and think of the future.Any song that does that needs to be heard more often.

Like Scarborough fair ive heard so many different versions of this song and i love them all, many of them have different verses but all say the same thing.

Lee Dewyze sang this song on American Idol. It was an amazing performance. He was this pst season's winner- a very talented young man.

This song is one of the most haunting ones I've ever heard. It just pulls at my heartstrings. I love the way Justin Timberlake sang it for the Help for Haiti concert.
