Almost
Hozier Lyrics


I came in from the outside
Burnt out from the joy ride
She likes to roll here in my ashes anyway
Played from the bedside
Is "Stella By Starlight"
"That Was My Heart"
The drums that start off "Night And Day"

The same kind of music haunts her bedroom
I'm almost me again, she's almost you

I wouldn't know where to start
"Sweet Music" playing "In The Dark"
Be still "My Foolish Heart,"
Don't ruin this on me

I wouldn't know where to start
"Sweet Music" playing "In The Dark"
Be still "My Foolish Heart,"
Don't ruin this on me

Tell me who, and I'll be thanking them
The numbered lovers of Duke Ellington
Do I owe each kiss to lip and cheek as soft
As Chet can sing "Let's Get Lost"
And "Let The Good Times Roll"
Let "Smoke Rings" from this "Paper, Doll"
Blow sweet and thick 'til every thought of
"It Don't Mean A Thing"

I've got some colour back, she thinks so, too
I laugh like me again, she laughs like you

I wouldn't know where to start
"Sweet Music" playing "In The Dark"
Be still "My Foolish Heart,"
Don't ruin this on me

I wouldn't know where to start
"Sweet Music" playing "In The Dark"
Be still "My Foolish Heart,"
Don't ruin this on me

I wouldn't know where
I wouldn't know where
I wouldn't know where, I wouldn't know where
I wouldn't
I wouldn't know where
I wouldn't know where
I wouldn't know where, I wouldn't know where
I wouldn't know

"The Very Thought Of You" and "Am I Blue"?
"A Love Supreme" seems far removed
"I Get Along Without You Very Well," some other nights
The radio news reader chimes
Reporting "Russian Lullabies"
She'll turn to me awake and ask, Is everything "Alright"

I wouldn't know where to start
"Sweet Music" playing "In The Dark"
Be still "My Foolish Heart,"
Don't ruin this on me

I wouldn't know where to start
"Sweet Music" playing "In The Dark"
Be still "My Foolish Heart,"
Don't ruin this on me

I wouldn't know where to start
"Sweet Music" playing "In The Dark"
Be still "My Foolish Heart,"
Don't ruin this on me

I wouldn't know where to start
"Sweet Music" playing "In The Dark"
Be still "My Foolish Heart,"
Don't ruin this on me

[Verse 1]
I came in from the outside, burned out from a joy ride
She likes to roll here in my ashes anyway
Played from the bedside is "Stella by Starlight"
That was my heart, the drums that start off "Night and Day"

[Pre-Chorus 1]
The same kind of music haunts her bedroom
I'm almost me again, she's almost you

[Chorus]
I wouldn't know where to start
Sweet music playing in the dark
Be still, my foolish heart
Don't ruin this on me
I wouldn't know where to start
Sweet music playing in the dark
Be still, my foolish heart
Don't ruin this on me

[Verse 2]
Tell me who, and I'll be thanking them
The numbered lovers of Duke Ellington
Do I owe each kiss to lip and cheek as soft as Chet can sing
Let's get lost and let the good times roll
Let smoke rings from this paper doll
Blow sweet and thick 'til every thought of it don't mean a thing


[Pre-Chorus 2]
I got some colour back, she thinks so, too
I laugh like me again, she laughs like you

[Chorus]
I wouldn't know where to start
Sweet music playing in the dark
Be still, my foolish heart
Don't ruin this on me
I wouldn't know where to start
Sweet music playing in the dark
Be still, my foolish heart
Don't ruin this on me

[Bridge]
I wouldn't know where
I wouldn't know where
I wouldn't know where, I wouldn't know where
I wouldn't, mmm
I wouldn't know where
I wouldn't know where
I wouldn't know where, I wouldn't know where
I wouldn't know

[Verse 3]
The very thought of you and am I blue?
A love supreme seems far removed
I get along without you very well some other nights
Oh, the radio news reader chimes
Reporting Russian lullabies
She'll turn to me awake and ask, "Is everything alright?"
And, Lord


[Chorus]
I wouldn't know where to start
Sweet music playing in the dark
Be still, my foolish heart
Don't ruin this on me
I wouldn't know where to start
Sweet music playing in the dark
Be still, my foolish heart
Don't ruin this on me
I wouldn't know where to start
Sweet music playing in the dark (I wouldn't know where)
Be still, my foolish heart
Don't ruin this on me
I wouldn't know where to start
Sweet music playing in the dark (I wouldn't know where)
Be still, my foolish heart
Don't ruin this on me

Be still "My Foolish Heart, "

RIP Cameron. so talented, I love watching him dance

Tom

@Eugeniya Leshenko you have some underlying issues you should work on

Zoe Price

@biigdoog102603 You too love, appreciate the calm response, some people can be really awful if they want to be

biigdoog102603

@Zoe Price ok good enough. Sorry if I came off a little strong. You have a great rest of you day. Everyone deserves some happy day here and there ☺️

Zoe Price

@biigdoog102603 No, I think you made your point fairly clear. Look, I try not to start pointless debates, and to an extent I agree what M.S. was saying about corporate control, but I just think this is the wrong place to bring it up

biigdoog102603

@Zoe Price obviously you didn't understand what I was trying to convey in my post. So I'll make more plain and laid out. Why are people caring so much of what other people feel does it really matter that must of people where they have to argue and bicker about someone's feelings to a celebrity or if they don't have feelings. The fact that someone can get so riled up and offended by what someone feels and what they're saying and then just expressing empathy or the lack thereof is pointless. There's much better things you could be doing with your life then scrolling through comments and bitching about someone else's beliefs when you can just let them have their own time to mourn or to not care. The only time that you should be getting into arguments of this nature of where you're trying to condemn someone is when it actually could have ramifications beyond that one person and affecting that singular person.
Debates are fine you want to get into a civil argument or both sides understand that they're not trying to attack each other and trying to learn from the experience awesome but both of the time is people just yelling at the top of their lungs condemning others and the other side yelling back just as loud with no real knowledge or information being garnered

there's something so pure and sacred about Hozier's songs. they each have their own meaning and capture an emotion that is hard to describe. Thank you, Hozier.

haydee mejia

This is so true

Lauren Kifer

That’s a perfect way to describe his music

Ye Xiu

Every song he made was so pure and so hard to analyze but its good so good
