Hallelujah (The Narrative)

You were only giving me the time of day And it was hard for me to keep that smile straight In the corner of the bar around the way from me But I knew what would become of us that night Everybody else was judging through the corners of their eyes And I could hardly tell you any single truth Or move And hallelujah Me and all my friends Waiting for the sun To make us new again Or finally burn up And bring us to our end We are not all quite as blessed as we may seem I've got these looks but I can't keep my body clean But I know that I can use my tongue to speak and sing Hallelujah Me and all my friends Waiting for the sun To bring us to our end Or finally burn up And make us free again And hallelujah I am free again And praise the good old lord But do not wait for him 'Cause he won't save your soul Or clean it of it's sins So let's soak in them Hallelujah Me and all my friends Waiting for the sun To make us new again Or finally burn up And bring us to our end
