Hallelujah Lyrics

Hallelujah - Bono

I heard there was a secret chord

That David played to pleased the Lord

 

But you don't really care for music do you

 

It goes like this the fourth the fifth

 

The minor fall and the major lift

The baffled king composing 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 she cut your hair

And from your lips she drew the hallelujah

 

Hallelujah hallelujah hallelujah hallelujah

 

You say I took the Name in vain

Well I don't even know the Name

But if I did well really what's it to you

 

There's a blaze of light in every word

 

It doesn't matter which you heard

The holy or the broken hallelujah

 

Hallelujah

 

I did my best it wasn't much

I couldn't feel so I learned to touch

I've told the truth I didn't come to fool you

 

And even though it all went wrong

I'll stand before the lord of song

 

With nothing on my lips hallelujah

 

Hallelujah hallelujah hallelujah hallelujah

 

Hallelujah hallelujah hallelujah hallelujah

 

Well maybe there's a God above

But all I ever learned from love

 

Was how to shoot at someone

Who outdrew you

 

And it's no complaint you hear tonight

 

It's not some pilgrim who's seen the light

 

It's a cold and broken hallelujah

 

Hallelujah hallelujah hallelujah hallelujah

 

 

Hallelujah hallelujah hallelujah hallelujah
