Hallelujah

1-1alicia keys is trying to make a comeback.
i was lowkey feeling that “in common” track.
the words to her new track,
“hallelujah”,
are saying what i couldn’t say…

There’s a hole in my heart I’ve been hiding
I’ve been strong for so long that I’m blind
Is there a place I can go where the lonely river flows?
Where fear ends and faith begins Hallelujah, hallelujah, let me in
I’ve been praying but I’m paying for my sins
Won’t you give me a sign if I lose my mind?
Woah, hallelujah, let me in

Every step makes me think that I’m closer
But somehow I just haven’t arrived
When our hope disappears, please protect me from my fears
I need you right by my side

Woah, woah, hallelujah
Woah, woah, hallelujah
All the places I’ve been
Please forgive me for my sins
Woah, hallelujah, let me in

ima check out her new record.
alicia knows how to sing about a certain kind of pain.
one that i relate with.
lowkey: i’ve forgiven her for “girl on fire”.

  1. I couldn’t get into this one for some strange reason it will definitely have to grow on me just like her first track did.

  2. I think it’s ok , what has been getting more attention tho is this whole “no make up” ideal she’s trying to push! The girls are dragging her saying that she’s only championing the cause after years of proactive use and special skin treatments lol.

  3. I really love everything about this era so far. The music, the look, the performances. She’s really bringing it. I’m excited for her new album.

  4. Not really a musical fan of her and this song is okay nothing I would probably listen to on a regular basis. She sounds different now, almost to the point, if I heard her and didnt know it was her, I might not recognize it. On another note, I saw this picture on social media the other day and had no idea that this was Alicia Keyes, Wow I am so shocked that I did not recognize her LoL. I must say however that she is beautiful in this pic, she looks so young and fresh.

  5. Thumbs down. Heard this on Apple Music last week , I prefer the “In Common” single. Not feeling the religious references at all.. No ma’am! Get that shtt away from here.

    Hopefully Maxwell won’t disappoint with his new album dropping on 7/1/16
