Lyric "Hallelujah"

I've heard there was a secret chord
That David played, and that pleased the Lord
But you don't really care for music, do ya?
And 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 ya
But she tied you to her kitchen chair
She broke your throne, and she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah

Baby I've been here before
I've seen this room and I've walked this floor
You know, I used to live alone before I knew ya
And I've seen your flag on the marble arch
And love is not some sort of a victory march
It's a cold and it's a broken Hallelujah

There was a time you let me know
What's really going on below
But now you 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

Maybe there's a god above
But all I've ever learned from love
Is how you shoot somebody who outdrew ya
And it's not a cry of joy that you hear at night
It's not somebody who's seen the light
It's a cold and it's a broken hallelujah
