Ed Sheeran - Hallelujah 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?
It goes like this, the fourth, the fifth
The minor fall, the major lift
The baffled king composing Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Maybe there's a god above
But 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

You said I took the name in vain
Well, I never really knew that name
But if I did, what really is it to you?
I've seen your flag on the marble arch
Love is not some victory march
It's a cold and it's a broken 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 her
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
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

    Even tho she is not a human, she is still the most cutest creature i've never seen.. I always cuddles her and fed her.. I still remember she is sleeping on the sofa.. But well.. I still grateful for it..

    This was my grandmas funerals song and me and her where close as can be and when my dad told me she died, and I was so surprised I almost collapsed and later on I found out something went wrong with a tiny surgery and when I found that out I was so mad at the doctor’s but later on I found out it was her time. And at a time I was so sad I just started to fall in to a black pit that I call depression but I learned she was in a better place and she will love are family no matter what.

  60. Ciara Larocque

    My mom passed away september 3 of 2019. she had cancer and was in the hospital for two weeks before she died. we kept being told that she was going home any day now, until My sister called me saying I had to go to the hospital. She got an infection, it wasn't even the cancer she had been fighting for 6 years that got her. I was listening to this song the day I got the call, In someway it helped me get through the events that followed. i'm only 14, but I have been through all the events named in the song.

    I will miss you forever mom, I love you to the moon and back...

    Xavier Martin

  63. Broken Piece

    It's really hard and painfull to know that someday we are going to part ways with our loved ones

  64. Pat McGroyne

    This was pretty much how it went when we lost Mom this year. Closing up her/our house and handing the memories around to each other was incredibly hard. I'll never go back to the place I called home for 25 years, but honestly, my faith has taught me that it's about rejoicing for HER next life...not mine right now. I'll miss you this holiday season, Mom. We all will. Glad you are finally home, and we will be together soon enough.

  65. Jeremy Apolos

    If everyone had Moms like Ed's, the orphan train wouldnt destroy families to make children paychecks.

    XL Leona

    Nacho Woman : what are you talking about!

    Eh It’s Em

  89. Patrick Goodspeed

    It's been 2 years since my grandmother passed. I held her hand as she drew her last breath. Everyday hurts just as much as that first day. This song represents the feelings of loss so well.

  90. Lime The Wolf 185

    My best friends mother died back in August a few days before her daughter’s birthday. It was very hard for all of my family and her family. My mother is trying to cope well because it was her best friend. She is currently listening to this song almost daily and sings along to it. This song was one of the three songs they played at her funeral. Thank you so much Ed, you have raised happiness all around you, keep going ❤️

  91. Natasha Smith


    Olivia Harbron

    No clue they obviously don't have a memory about this song

  92. Kevilenuo Zhale

    How many feel like crying 😢and emotional 😞😖.I too feel like crying whenever i listen to this song 😞

  93. You know Who

    This album is so hard for me to listen too. About a 2 years ago I bought this album and listened to it everyday. But during that time I was in a very bad relationship. I remember going to a dance with my ex and he did something that I would never forget, what he did ruined me. While I was riding back home with my mom ed's playlist was playing. I was crying in the car listening to this song. That night was one of the hardest nights of my life but Ed saved me. If it wasn't for his music I wouldn't of told my mom what had happened to me.

  94. Daniel Szpunar

    "Benny Bianco, Ed Sheeran" HAHA

  95. Amy Tuckwell

    It’s my grandmas birthday today but unfortunately no cake to bake since it’s been 4 years since she left. Happy birthday grandma wherever you are x

  96. 김지우

    When i listen to this I keep thinking about my grandparents. They died when i was a kid. When I keep thinking of that tears rain from my eyes.....

  97. Talie

    I heard this song for the first time a few years ago and when I did I immediately broke into tears. It wasn’t my mom, but my dad instead. He died in a crash when I was 2. I’m so sorry for everyone else that has gone through something like this or is currently. Just remember, you will always be loved and you’ll get to see them someday

  98. Kūromîya Sá chann

    Happy birthday, ma. RIP 💙
