Leon Liedtext

Leon Rufus Wainwright – Hallelujah Liedtext

I’ve heard there was

A secret chord

That David played, and

It pleased the Lord

But you don’t really care

For music, do you?

It goes like this:

The fourth, the fifth

The minor fall, the major lift

The baffled king

Composing Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Hallelujah, 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

And she cut your hair

And from your lips

She drew the Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Maybe 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

Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah

There was a time

You let me know

What’s real and going on below

But now you never show

It to me, do you?

I remember when

I moved in, you

Your holy dark

Was moving too

And every breath we drew

Was Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Maybe there’s a God above

And all I ever

Learned from love

Was how to shoot

At someone

Who outdrew you

It’s not a cry

You can 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, Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
