 FGCG
But you don't really care for music, do you?    
 CFG
It goes like this: the fourth, the fifth
 AmFDm
The minor fall, the major lift

The baffled king composing Halleluja
 AmFAmFCGC
 Halleluja, Halleluja, Halleluja, Hallelu-u-u-ja

 Halleluja, Halleluja, Halleluja, Hallelu-u-u-ja


Though, this one is a bit easier:

 GEm
Your faith was strong but you needed proof
 GEm
You saw her bathing on the roof
 CG
her beauty, and the moonlight overthrew you
 GCD
She tied you to a kitchen chair
 EmCD
she broke your throne and she cut your hair
 DEm
and from your lips she drew the Halleluja

Halleluja, Halleluja, Halleluja, Hallelu-u-u-ja

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

And maybe there's a god above

But all I've ever learned from love
Is how to shoot at someone who outdrew you
And 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 ...
