Lyrics

We might kiss
when we are alone
when nobody's watchin'
we might take it home

we might make out
when nobody's there
it's not that we're scared
it's just that it's delicate

so why'd ya fill my sorrow
with the words you borrow
from the only place you've known
why'd ya sing hallelujah
if it means nothin' to ya
why'd ya sing with me at all?

we might live
like never before
when there's nothin' to give
well, how can we ask for more?

we might make love
in some sacred place
that look on your face
is delicate

so why'd ya fill my sorrow
with the words you borrowed
from the only place that you've known
why'd ya sing hallelujah
if it means nothin' to ya
why'd ya sing with me at all?

so why'd ya fill my sorrow
with the words you borrow
from the only place that you've known
and why'd ya sing hallelujah
if it means nothin' to ya
why'd ya sing with me at all?

    My friend sent me this song last night. I'm getting the album for christmas but in the meantime, I'm listening to this song. It is a good song, not one of my favourites but nevertheless a good song.
