ChorusHalleClujah, C HalleEmlujah, Em HalleClujah, C HalleGlu-Du-Gjah! Your faith was strong but you needed proof. You saw her bathing on the roof; Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew you. But she tied you to a kitchen chair She broke your throne, she cut your hair, and from your lips she drew the Hallelujah!
ChorusYou say I took the name in vain; But 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! (Chorus) Baby, I’ve been here before. I know this room, I’ve walked this floor. I used to live alone before I knew you. I’ve seen your flag on the marble arch, Love is not a victory march. It’s a cold and it’s a broken Hallelujah!
ChorusThere was a time you let me know What’s really going on below But now you never show it to me, do you? I remember when I moved in you, And the holy dove was moving, too. And every breath we drew was Hallelujah!
ChorusNow maybe there’s a God above But all I ever learn from love Is how to shoot at somebody who outdrew you. And it’s not a 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! (Chorus)
