I've been a desperate man
I've been sheltered by a lonely dream
There's a stranger here
Looking back above the bathroom sink
Every night I throw you out
Leave you stranded on the boulevard
You know that I use you up
I used you like I used them all

Well, the band's singing hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
You're all gone
Yeah, you're all gone

If I could have a simple love
How would it feel and what would it mean?
I'd only trade you away
For Mary Magdalene
Oh, it wouldn't make me a saint
And it wouldn't make me the king
And I wouldn't have to wait
Wait around for the real thing

Well, the band's singing hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
You're all gone
Yeah, you're all gone

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
You're all gone
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah

Is this Radio Bible, or what? It's not even close to that hypocritical commercial event at the birthday of the sun god also referred to as "christmas". Had to change the channel immediately.
 
What a knee-jerk reaction to the word "Hallelujah". Did you hear/read the lyrics? It's about using women, leaving them "stranded on the boulevard" and preferring Mary Magdalene types. Sounds like the P.O.V. of a pimp.

You need to pickup Ryan's album Heartbreaker. That well help you form your opinion of him. I have no clue why they are playing this track, it is weak IMO.
I can't believe there isn't a SINGLE song in the database from the Heartbreaker album on RP (as of 9/2/04). That album had some amazing stuff on it - like "Oh My Sweet Carolina - the duet with Emmylou Harris - or Damn, Sam.
