Amor Prohibido

I Loved a Woman, Hallelujah!

I, Samson
I, David
I loved a woman

Hallelujah…

She cut my hair
She broke my throne
I loved a woman

Hallelujah…

I drank of beauty
I tasted sin
I loved a woman

Hallelujah…

I lost my faith
I lost my heart
I loved a woman

Hallelujah…

I faced my death
I faced His wrath
I, a broken man
I loved a woman

Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

You, my Bathsheba
You, my Delilah
I, am your man
I love you, woman

Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
