My love for you will never fade
You locked the door; my bed I’ve made
A face in the crowd reminds me: so you
The smile at tilt; the voice that lilt
The auburn hair; the skin so fair
My tender heart skips a beat: Hallelujah
CHORUS: Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Your eyes held mine, a magic spell
The pain I felt was a pleasing hell
No one could e’ver compare to you
You touched my face with your hand
The time all round came to a stand
From my soul I moaned: Hallelujah
CHORUS: Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Love’s tender touch now in the past
Around I’d see: Nothing e’er last
The things I did could’ve blew’ you
The cars I drove at such high speed
The fast life our friends would lead
We did not understand the Hallelujah
CHORUS: Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
I tempted you with a bit of snow*
You didn’t at first want to know
If y’ didn’t know how I’d show you
The surreal dream showed on your face
Everything moved at a faster pace
You shouted my name: Hallelujah!

CHORUS: Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
You pulled away then from me
I was begging for you please to see
What this was doing to us; to you
All that mattered was the crave
Your life given over to a rave
You’ve shut me out in this Hallelujah
CHORUS: Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Your beauty faded before my eyes
The pain you caused with all your lies
I couldn’t bear to see what we did to you
Your dreams had fallen and paranoid
The reality, now null and void
A syringe, your only Hallelujah
CHORUS: Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
On our true love I will always dine
To’ve turned back to another time
To happy times I loved and knew you
For bringing you into this ruin
Sorry! This was all my doin’
For me there will be no more Hallelujah.

    SUZETTE!!! What am amazing write. I'm enthralled! So good to see you posting. This was a journey that had a sad ending; however, every journey means a lesson learned...though painful. Hugs, dear one.
