To Be Alone
Hozier Lyrics


Never feel too good in crowds,
With folks around
When they're playing
The anthems of rape culture loud,
Crude and proud
Creatures baying
All I've ever done is hide
From our times
When you're near me
Honey, when you kill the lights
And kiss my eyes
I feel like a person for a moment of my life

But you don't know what hell you put me through
To have someone kiss the skin that crawls from you
To feel your weight in arms I'd never use
It's the god that heroin prays to

It feels good, girl, it feels good
It feels good, girl, it feels good
It feels good, girl, it feels good
Oh to be alone with you

There are questions I can't ask
Now at last
The worst is over
See the way you hold yourself
Reel against
Your body's borders
I know that you hate this place
Not a trace
Of me would argue
Honey, we should run away
Oh someday
Our baby and her momma
And the damaged love she make

But I don't know what else that I would give
Than try to kiss the skin that crawls from you
Then feel your weight in arms I'd never use
It's the god that heroin prays to

It feels good, girl, it feels good
It feels good, girl, it feels good
It feels good, girl, it feels good
Oh to be alone with you

It feels good, girl, it feels good
It feels good, girl, it feels good
It feels good, girl, it feels good
Oh to be alone with you

You know you've found a brilliant musician when the live version is better than the album version.

And an amazing lyricist that will never truly be understood fully.. it's extremely uncanning how many different versions of metaphoric storylines in each of his songs that all mix. Can't even explain it

Amaia Romero be like that

I love how everyone is trying to overlook that he uses the words "rape culture" and try to make it out to mean something else. Nah. We know what rape culture is, we know that he doesn't mean anything like a chaotic street. Listening to this song, honestly, I think this song is about what it's like to be in love with someone with so much sexual trauma. It's about loving someone with serious trust issues, especially sexually. Trying to navigate the complicated journey of survival and recovery from sexual assault, from rape, from abuse. "Honey when you kill the lights and kiss my eyes... I feel like a person for a moment of my life."

"The damaged love she makes. I don't know what else that I would do, than try to kiss the skin that crawls from you." Having the trust of someone you love, being able to live in your body as a BODY and not a trap filled with horrific memories is like a drug. Love, trust, feeling, emotions are like drugs. When you feel nothing, you crave the ability to do so more than ever. Trauma numbs.

But nah, go ahead and try to make it about something else, try to ignore the fact this song is implicitly about the effect misogyny has on men and women. About rape culture and a crude culture that ignores the effects it has on victims.

No I think he just meant songs like about smack yer ho or hit it and quit it that you hear in clubs as rape culture anthems he wants less glamour and more intimacy is what I hear. He wants to be loved up and adored not just ridden hard and put away wet.
