Hallelujah

Song Author Leonard Cohen Lyrics by: Leonard Cohen Performer: Jeff Buckley Submitted by: Anonymous
[C]    [Am]    [C]    [Am]    
I [C]heard there was a [Am]secret chord
That [C]David played and it [Am]pleased the Lord
But [F]you don't really [G]care for music, [C]do you? [G]    
Well it [C]goes like this the [F]fourth, the [G]fifth
The [Am]minor fall and the [F]major lift
The [G]baffled king com[E]posing halle[Am]lujah

Halle[F]lujah, halle[Am]lujah,
halle[F]lujah, halle[C]lu-u-[G]u-u-[C]jah [Am]    [C]    [Am]    

Well your [C]faith was strong but you [Am]needed proof
You [C]saw her bathing [Am]on the roof
Her [F]beauty and the [G]moonlight over[C]threw you [G]    
She [C]tied you to her [F]kitchen [G]chair
She [Am]broke your throne and she [F]cut your hair
And [G]from your lips she [E]drew the halle[Am]lujah

Halle[F]lujah, halle[Am]lujah,
halle[F]lujah, halle[C]lu-u-[G]u-u-[C]jah [Am]    [C]    [Am]    

[C]Baby I've been [Am]here before
I've [C]seen this room and I've [Am]walked this floor
I [F]used to live a[G]lone before I [C]knew you [G]    
I've [C]seen your flag on the [F]marble [G]arch
But [Am]love is not a [F]victory march
It's a [G]cold and it's a [E]broken halle[Am]lujah

Halle[F]lujah, halle[Am]lujah,
halle[F]lujah, halle[C]lu-u-[G]u-u-[C]jah [Am]    [C]    [Am]    

Well, there [C]was a time when you [Am]let me know
What's [C]really going [Am]on below
But [F]now you never [G]show that to me [C]do you? [G]    
But re[C]member when I [F]moved in [G]you  
And the [Am]holy dove was [F]moving too
And [G]every breath we [E]drew was halle[Am]lujah

Halle[F]lujah, halle[Am]lujah,
halle[F]lujah, halle[C]lu-u-[G]u-u-[C]jah [Am]    [C]    [Am]    

Well, [C]maybe there's a [Am]God above
But [C]all I've ever [Am]learned from love
Was [F]how to shoot some[G]body who out[C]drew you [G]    
It's [C]not a cry that you [F]hear at [G]night
It's [Am]not somebody who's [F]seen the light
It's a [G]cold and it's a [E]broken halle[Am]lujah

Halle[F]lujah, halle[Am]lujah,
halle[F]lujah, halle[C]lu-u-[G]u-u-[C]jah [G]    

Halle[F]lujah, halle[Am]lujah,
halle[F]lujah, halle[C]lu-u-[G]u-u-[C]jah [G]    


I heard there was a secret chord
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-u-jah

Well 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 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-u-jah

Baby I've been here before
I've seen this room and I've walked this floor
I used to live alone before I knew you
I've seen your flag on the marble arch
But love is not a victory march
It's a cold and it's a broken hallelujah

Hallelujah, hallelujah,
hallelujah, hallelu-u-u-u-jah

Well, there was a time when you let me know
What's really going on below
But now you never show that to me do you?
But remember when I moved in you
And the holy dove was moving too
And every breath we drew was hallelujah

Hallelujah, hallelujah,
hallelujah, hallelu-u-u-u-jah

Well, maybe there's a God above
But all I've ever learned from love
Was how to shoot somebody who outdrew you
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

Hallelujah, hallelujah,
hallelujah, hallelu-u-u-u-jah

Hallelujah, hallelujah,
hallelujah, hallelu-u-u-u-jah
