Hallelujah – Lyrics

 

Bon Jovi

Well I heard there was a secret chord
that David played to please 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.

hallelujah, hallelujah

hallelujah, hallelujah

 

Well your faith was strong but you needed proof,
you saw her bathing on the roof,
her beauty and the moonlight overthrew ya.
And she tied you to her kitchen chair,
she broke your throne and she cut your hair
and from the lips she drew the hallelujah

hallelujah, hallelujah

hallelujah, hallelujah

 

Yeah baby I’ve been here before,
I’ve seen this room and I’ve walked this floor.
I used to live alone before I knew ya.
And I’ve seen your flag on that marble arch.

Your love is not a victory march.
It’s a cold and it’s a broken hallelujah.

hallelujah, hallelujah

hallelujah, hallelujah

 

Well there was a time when you let me know
what was going on below,
now you don’t never show that to me, do ya?
But remember when I moved in you
and the holy dove was moving too
and every breath we drew was hallelujah.

hallelujah, hallelujah

hallelujah, hallelujah

 

Well now maybe there’s a god above,
but all I’ve ever learned from love
was how to shoot somebody who outdrew ya.
And it’s not your cry that I hear at night, no.
It’s not someone who’s seen the light.
It’s a cold and it’s a broken hallelujah.

 

hallelujah, hallelujah

hallelujah, hallelujah

hallelujah, hallelujah

hallelujah, hallelujah

hallelujah, hallelujah

hallelujah
