I’ve heard there was a secret chord

I’ve seen your flag on the marble arch

And love is not a victory march,

It’s a cold and it’s a broken Hallelujah.

Many years ago, I heard this song for the first time. It made not a lick of sense. It took some growing spiritually and numerically, to understand anything of it.

I’ve googled the song, intrigued about it’s lyrical meaning. There’s seems to be some controversy even now.

To me, this song is saying prayers and praises need to be lifted in every storm. It’s saying that love, faith, and lust are all apart of one another, and that regardless of circumstances, love isn’t ready. It takes work. It’s not ever a victory without some sacrifice.

That’s my interpretation, anyway.
