Chorus 1
We pour out our miseries
God just hears a melody
Beautiful the mess we are
The honest cries of breaking hearts
Are better than a hallelujah
Verse 1
God loves a lullaby
In a mother's tears in the dead of night
Better than a hallelujah sometimes
God loves a drunkard's cry
The soldier's plea not to let him die
Better than a hallelujah sometimes
Verse 2
A woman holding on for life
A dying man giving up the fight
Are better than a hallelujah sometimes
Tears of shame for what's been done
The silence when the words won't come
Are better than a hallelujah sometimes

(BRIDGE)
Better than a church bell ringing
Better than a choir singing out
Singing out
