Silent Wind
Дети любят в театре вскакивать с мест. Я забыл, что это - окоп. (Р. Киплинг)


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, she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Now maybe there's a god above,
All I've ever seemed to learn from love
Is how to shoot at someone who outdrew you.
Yeah but it's not a cry that you hear tonight,
It's not the laughter of someone who claims to have seen the light
No, it's a cold and it's a very broken Hallelujah.

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

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
And I've seen your flag on the marble arch
But listen love - love is not a kind victory march
No! It's a cold and it's a very lonely Hallelujah.

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

There was a time you'd let me know
What's realy and going on below
But now you never show it to me, do you?
I remember when I moved in you
The holy dark she was moving too
And every breath we drew was Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

I did my best, it wasn't much
I could not feel, so I learn to touch
I've told the truth, I didn't come to fool you
And even though it all went wrong
I'll stand right here before the Lord of Song
With nothing on my tongue but Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
