Hum Hallelujah Lyrics

It's all a game of this or that
Now verses then
Better off against
Worse for wear
And you're someone
Who knows someone who knows someone I once knew
And I just want to be a part of this

The road outside my house
Is paved with good intentions
Hired a construction crew
'Cause it's hell on the engine
And you are the dreamer
And we are the dream
I could write it better than you ever felt it

So hum hallelujah
Just off the key of reason
I thought I loved you
But it's just how you looked in the light
A teenage vow in a parking lot
Till tonight do us part
I sing the blues and swallow them too

My words are my faith
To hell with our good name
A remix up your guts
Your insides x-rayed
And one day we'll get nostalgic for disaster
We're a bull
Your ears are just a china shop

I love you in the same way
There's a chapel in a hospital
One foot in your bedroom
And one foot out the door
Sometimes we take chances
Sometimes we take pills
I could write it better than you ever felt it

So hum hallelujah
Just off the key of reason
I thought I loved you
But it's just how you looked in the light
A teenage vow in a parking lot
Till tonight do us part
I sing the blues and swallow them too

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelu... (hum hallelujah)
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelu... (hum hallelujah)

A teenage vow in a parking lot
Till tonight do us part
I sing the blues
And swallow them too

So, hum hallelujah
Just off the key of reason
I thought I loved you
It's just how you looked in the light
A teenage vow in a parking lot
Till tonight do us part
A teenage love in a parking lot
Till tonight do us part
A teenage vow in a parking lot
Till tonight do us part
I sing the blues and swallow them too

1 Thoughts & Meanings

Smart pun this one, one of many Fall Out Boy's lyrical pantheon has to offer. It refers to the unsurpassable need to be part of one's life and that one to be part of yours, with every possible way. Get involved, be in love. Or not, as the chorus suggests.
