hallelujah lyrics – dear & the headlights

smiling sweet, she said she made you smoke your cigs all outside
this could be your last time
this would be your last time now
what’s a few if the hotel don’t mind?

remember how her eyes would shine?
they made you come home on time
what’s the plan for tonight?
callin’ just to say hi love
how ’bout just us tonght?

oh and oh and oh her eyes always fixing to tell me
our love is gorgeous
while she would sing so softly

halle hallel hallel hallelujah
hallelujah, hallelujah
halle hallel hallel hallelujah
hallelujah, hallelujah

and we would take those walks at night

and we would dance there in the kitchen til we couldn’t catch our breath

blood collects and clots
seeps from carpet to tile
when you signed you seemed fine
when you signed you seemed fine
a stiff drink will change your mind and

memories are for keeping
mostly leaving behind
we remember alright
we remember alright now
a thousand memories and too much wine

oh and oh and oh the song she would sing it so sweetly
the drunken stupor
it had you slurring out loud

halle hallel hallel hallelujah
hallelujah, hallelujah
halle hallel hallel hallelujah
hallelujah, hallelujah

and we would take those walks at night

and we would dance there in the kitchen til we couldn’t catch or breath

cold limbs
casino carpet
and linoleum tiles you
sleep

waking up to the choir singing

halle hallel hallel hallelujah
hallelujah, hallelujah
halle hallel hallel hallelujah
hallelujah, hallelujah

remember how her eyes would shine?
they made you come home on time

do you remember how her eyes would shine?
they made you come home on time.
