hallelujah lyrics – gavin degraw

well i heard there was a sacred cord
that david played and it pleased the lord
but you don’t really care for music do you?
well it goes like this
the fourth the fifth
the minor fall and the major lift
the baffled king composing hallelujah

hallelujah, hallelujah
hallelujah
hallelu-u-u-jah

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

hallelujah, hallelujah
hallelujah
hallelu-u-u-jah

yeah well 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 you
and i’ve seen your flag on the marble arch
and love is not some victory march
it’s a cold and it’s a broken hallelujah

hallelujah, hallelujah
hallelujah
hallelu- hallelu-u-jah

well there was a time
when you let me know
what’s really going on below
yeah but now you never show that to me do you?
remember when i moved in you
and the holy dove was moving too
and every breath we drew was hallelujah

hallelujah, hallelujah
hallelujah, hallelujah
hallelujah

maybe there’s a god above
if at all i’ve ever learned from love
was how to shoot somebody who out drew you
it’s not some cry that you hear at night
it’s not somebody who’s seen the light
it’s a cold and it’s a broken hallelujah

hallelujah, hallelujah
hallelujah, hallelujah
hallelujah

hallelu- hallelu- hallelujah
hallelujah…
