Susan Boyle – Hallelujah


Uploaded on Nov 16, 2010

Now 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

Baby I have 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 really going on below
But now you never show it to me, do you?
And remember when I moved in you
The holy dove was moving too
And every breath we drew was Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

You say I took the name in vain
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

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

I did my best, it wasn’t much
I couldn’t feel, so I tried to touch
I’ve told the truth, I didn’t come to fool you
And even though
It all went wrong
I’ll stand before the Lord of Song
With nothing on my tongue but Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah

Regina Spektor – Human Of The Year (“…Til next year’s big human winner…”)


REGINA SPEKTOR LYRICS

“Human Of The Year”

Hello, hello
Calling a Karl Projectorinski
To the front of the cathedral
You have won, dear sir
May I congratulate you first?

Human, human of the year
You won [x2]

Why are you so scared
You stand there shaking in your pew
The icons are whispering to you
They’re just old men
Like on the benches on the park
Except their balding spots are glistening with gold

Human, human of the year
You won [x2]
You have won

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Outside the cars are beeping
Out a song
Just in your honor
And even though they do not know it
All mankind are now your brothers
And as the cathedral has spoken
Wishing well to all us sinners
And where the sight grew silent
Til next year’s big human winner

Outside the cars are beeping
Out a song
Just in your honor
And even though they do not know it
All mankind are now your brothers
All mankind are now your brothers

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Hello, hello
Calling a Karl Projectorinski
To the front of the cathedral
You have won

Lyrics:

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, hallelujah 

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, hallelujah 

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 a victory march 
It’s a cold and it’s a broken hallelujah 

Hallelujah,hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah 

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, hallelujah 

Well maybe there’s a God above 
But all I’ve ever learned from love 
Was how to shoot 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 

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah 
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah 
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah 
Hallelujah
