Hozier – My Love Will Never Die

You’ve done
Me wrong
For a long
Long time

But after all
You’ve done
I never changed
My mind

Honey please
Try to love me
Honey please
Honey try
My love will never die

Flowers
Flowers grow
Where I’m laid
To rest

Honey pick
A blossom
And hold it
Hold it
To your breast

Honey you know
That’s my love
Bursting loud
From inside

My love
Oh my love my love
Will never die

Hozier – Arsonist’s Lullabye

When I was a child, I heard voices…
Some would sing and some would scream
You soon find you have few choices…
I learned the voices died with me

When I was a child I’d sit for hours
Staring into open flame
Something in it had a power,
Could barely tear my eyes away

All you have is your fire…
And the place you need to reach –
Don’t you ever, tame your demon
But always keep ’em on a leash

When I was 16 my senses fooled me
Thought gasoline was on my clothes
I knew that something would always rule me…
I knew the scent was mine alone

All you have is your fire
And the place you need to reach
Don’t you ever, tame your demon –
But always keep ’em on a leash

When I was a man I thought it ended
When I knew loves perfect ache
But my peace has always depended
On all the ashes in my way

All you have is your fire,
And the place you need to reach
Don’t you ever, tame your demons,
But always keep ’em on a leash…

Hozier – Run

Rare is this love, keep it covered
I need you to run to me, run to me, lover
Run until you feel your lungs bleedingOh but the pharaoh knows
Her hungry eye, her ancient soul
It’s carried by the sneering menagerie

Know what it is to grow
Beneath her sky, a punishing cold
To slowly light up her ancient misery

To be twisted by something
A shame without a sin
Like how she twisted the bug man
After she married him

Rare is this love, keep it covered
I need you to run to me, run to me, lover
Run until you feel your lungs bleeding

But in all the world
There is one lover worthy of her
With as many souls claimed as she

But for all he’s worth
He still shatters always on her earth
The cause of every tear she’d ever weep

Rushing ashore to meet her
Foaming with loneliness
White ends to follow and meet her
Give her his loneliness

Rare is this love, keep it covered
I need you to run to me, run to me, lover
Run ’til you feel your lungs bleeding

Rare is this love, keep it covered
I need you to run to me, run to me, lover
Run until you feel your lungs bleeding

Rare is this love, keep it covered
I need you to run to me, run to me, lover
Run until you feel your lungs bleeding

Hozier – In The Woods Somewhere

Our head was warm,
My skin was soaked.
I called your name ’til the fever broke.

When I awoke
The moon still hung.
The night so black that the darkness hummed

I raised myself.
My legs were weak.
I prayed my mind be good to me.

An awful noise
Filled the air.
I heard a scream in the woods somewhere.

A woman’s voice!
I quickly ran
Into the trees with empty hands.

A fox it was,
He shook afraid.
I spoke no words, no sound he made.

His bone exposed,
His hind was lame.
I raised a stone to end his pain.

What caused the wound?
How large the teeth?
I saw new eyes were watching me.

The creature lunged.
I turned and ran
To save a life I didn’t have.

Dear, in the chase
There as I flew
Forgot all prayers of joining you.

I clutched my life
And wished it kept.
My dearest love I’m not done yet

How many years
I know I’ll bear
I found something in the woods somewhere.

Hozier – Cherry Wine (Live)

Her eyes and words are so icy
Oh but she burns
Like rum on the fire
Hot and fast and angry
As she can be
I walk my days on a wire

It looks ugly, but it’s clean
Oh mamma, don’t fuss over me

The way she tells me I’m hers and she is mine
Open hand or closed fist would be fine
The blood is rare and sweet as cherry wine

Calls of guilty thrown at me
All while she stains
The sheets of some other
Thrown at me so powerfully
Just like she throws with the arm of her brother

But I want it, it’s a crime
That she’s not around most of the time

Way she shows me I’m hers and she is mine
Open hand or closed fist would be fine
The blood is rare and sweet as cherry wine

Her fight and fury is fiery
Oh but she loves
Like sleep to the freezing
Sweet and right and merciful
I’m all but washed
In the tide of her breathing

And it’s worth it, it’s divine
I have this some of the time

Way she shows me I’m hers and she is mine
Open hand or closed fist would be fine
The blood is rare and sweet as cherry wine

Hozier – Foreigner’s God

She moved with shameless wonder
The perfect creature rarely seen
Since some liar brought the thunder
When the land was godless and free

Her eyes look sharp and steady
Into the empty parts of me
But still my heart is heavy
With the hate of some other man’s beliefs

Always a well dressed fraud
Who wouldn’t spare the rod
Never for me

Screaming the name of a foreigner’s God
Screaming the name of a foreigner’s God
Screaming the name of a foreigner’s God
The purest expression of grief

Wondering who I copy
Mustering some tender charm
She feels no control of her body
She feels no safety in my arms

I’ve no language left to say it
But all I do is quake to her
Breaking if I try convey it
The broken love I make to her

All that I’ve been taught
And every word I’ve got
Is foreign to me

Screaming the name of a foreigner’s God
Screaming the name of a foreigner’s God
Screaming the name of a foreigner’s God
The purest expression of grief

Hozier – It Will Come Back

You know better babe, you know better babe,
Than to look at it, look at it like that.
You know better babe, you know better babe,
Than to talk to it, talk to it like that.

Don’t give it a hand, offer it a soul
Honey, make this easy.
Leave it to the land, this is what it knows
Honey, that’s how it sleeps.

Don’t let it in with no intention to keep it
Jesus Christ! Don’t be kind to it.
Honey don’t feed it – it will come back.

You know better babe, you know better babe,
Than to smile at me, smile at me like that
You know better babe, you know better babe!
Than to hold me just, hold me just like that.

I know who I am when I’m alone
I’m something else when I see you
You don’t understand, you should never know
How easy you are to need

Don’t let me in with with no intention to keep me
Jesus Christ! Don’t be kind to me.
Honey don’t feed me – I will come back.

It can’t be unlearned
I’ve known the warmth of your doorways
Through the cold, I’ll find my way back to you
Oh please, give me mercy no more!
It’s a kindness you can’t afford!
I want you baby tonight, as sure as you’re born

You’ll hear me howling outside your door.
Don’t you hear me howling babe?
Won’t you hear me howling babe?
Don’t you hear me howling babe?
Once you here me howling, once you hear me howling, once you hear me howling babe!
