Misery Business "Misery Business" "Hallelujah" "Crushcrushcrush" Crushcrushcrush

"Hallelujah" is the third track from Paramore's second album Riot! as well as its second single. The single peaked at #139 on the UK Singles Chart. A CD single and two 7" vinyls were released in the UK on 3 September. The song was featured in an episode of the British television soap opera Hollyoaks in October 2008 ("Misery Business" was also used in another episode in March 2008 and then later "Born for This" in September 2008). The song was also featured twice (once as a string quartet version) on the fourth season of So You Think You Can Dance.



The song Hallelujah is about the strong faith the band had in themselves and hope of pushing it forward to be the best form of Paramore they can be.

Paramore Hallelujah OFFICIAL VIDEO

The video, directed by Big TV! was officially released on July 30, 2007. The video appears as a photo montage of backstage and live performance photos, with the lyrics of the song written in the spaces between the photos. The video will zoom in and out on some of the photos. When the photo fills the entire screen, the photo will be revealed to actually be a short video clip, and the video clip will play. The video was shot at Rocketown in Nashville, USA when the band where playing their Riot! tour, even though the music is playing over the concert performance.





Somehow everything's gonna fall right into place
If we only had a way to make it all fall faster every day
If only time flew like a dove
Well God, make it fly faster than I'm falling in love

This time we're not giving up
Let's make it last forever
Screaming "Hallelujah!"
We'll make it last forever

Holding onto patience wearing thin
I can't force these eyes to see the end
If only time flew like a dove
Well, we could watch it fly and just keep looking up

This time we're not giving up
Let's make it last forever
Screaming "Hallelujah!"
We'll make it last forever

And we've got time on our hands
Got nothing but time on our hands
Got nothing but, got nothing but
Got nothing but time on our hands

This time we're not giving up
Oh, let's make it last forever
Screaming "Hallelujah! Hallelujah!"
