Hallelujah Lyrics

The other day I found myself up on the corner
I thought I run into a friend of mine
Ended up that he was just a stranger
I said hello as he passed me by

But then he turned and put a gun to my head
He said, my friend I'm going to rob you blind
I said you must be down on your luck
I'm out of money and I'm all out of time

He pulled the trigger and I fell to my knees
My spirit left and then my body went cold
I'm looking down upon the lights of the city
I feel alive, but I'm dead and gone

Ain't no more walking down the side of the road
Ain't no more sleeping on the edge of a frown
Ain't no more favors from someone I don't know
'Cause there ain't nobody hear me, nobody's around

Hallelujah, I'm coming home
Hallelujah, he's dead and gone
Hallelujah, something's wrong

So tell me now if your singing can bring me
Another day with my feet on the ground
I miss living and living misses me
I miss it so much that I'm holding me down For all the things that I never could change
For all the reasons that I never understood why

I feel alone, baby
I'm dead and gone, baby
There's somethings wrong
'Cause you know I still feel alive

My train is rolling down the line
And I'm waiting 'till it bring me a dream
For holding you up in my eyes
Oh feel my love, honey
From up above, honey
Oh don't give up on me 'cause I'm coming down

I'm not a one nighter
I'm not a flat liner
I've everything in between the harmony you're singing loud

Hallelujah, I'm coming home
Hallelujah, its dead and gone
Hallelujah, something's wrong
It's just a song

The other day I found myself up on the corner
I thought I run into a friend of mine

Thoughts & Meanings

It is difficult for me to say what this song is supposed to be about but here is my interpretation. It sounds like someone that has just given up on life, possibly suicidal, living in dangerous situations most likely self medicating with some serious drugs. At the point where the trigger is pulled, they have hit rock bottom, nothing left to give, no hope, no faith, just hopeless and dead inside. Something, seems to trigger that faint smoldering ember of hope, i am guessing a woman. He is so lost in that darkness, pleading for her to give him something real to believe in, but is jaded a bit from the life he has lived that he is fighting his own inner demons to actually feel something he no longer believes in, or is at least scared to believe in because after a life of so many terrible things, it is almost scarier to have something real that you could lose.
