From Eden
Hozier Lyrics


Babe
There's something tragic about you
Something so magic about you
Don't you agree?

Babe
There's something lonesome about you
Something so wholesome about you
Get closer to me
No tired sighs, no rolling eyes, no irony
No 'who cares', no vacant stares, no time for me

Honey, you're familiar like my mirror years ago
Idealism sits in prison, chivalry fell on its sword
Innocence died screaming, honey, ask me I should know
I slithered here from Eden just to sit outside your door

Babe, there's something wretched about this
Something so precious about this
Oh what a sin

To the strand a picnic plan for you and me
A rope in hand for your other man to hang from a tree

Honey, you're familiar like my mirror years ago
Idealism sits in prison, chivalry fell on its sword
Innocence died screaming, honey, ask me I should know
I slithered here from Eden just to sit outside your door

Honey, you're familiar like my mirror years ago
Idealism sits in prison, chivalry fell on its sword
Innocence died screaming, honey, ask me I should know
I slithered here from Eden just to hide outside your door

Babe, there's something tragic about you
Something so magic about you
Don't you agree?

Babe, there's something lonesome about you
Something so wholesome about you
Get closer to me

No tight side, no rolling eyes, no irony
No 'who cares', no vacant stares, no time for me

Honey you're familiar like my mirror years ago
Idealism sits in prison, chivalry fell on it's sword
Innocence died screaming, honey ask me I should know
I slithered here from Eden just to sit outside your door

Babe, there's something wretched about this
Something so precious about this
Oh what a sin

To the strand a picnic plan for you and me
A rope in hand for your other man to hang from a tree

Honey you're familiar like my mirror years ago
Idealism sits in prison, chivalry fell on it's sword
Innocents died screaming, honey ask me I should know
I slithered here from Eden just to sit outside your door

Honey you're familiar like my mirror years ago
Idealism sits in prison, chivalry fell on it's sword
Innocence died screaming, honey ask me I should know
I slithered here from Eden just to hide outside your door

Babe
There's something tragic about you
Something so magic about you
Don't you agree?

Babe
There's something lonesome about you
Something so wholesome about you
Get closer to me

[Pre-Chorus 1]
No tired sigh, no rolling eyes
No irony
No "Who cares?", no vacant stare
No time for me

[Chorus]
Honey, you're familiar, like my mirror years ago
Idealism sits in prison, chivalry fell on his sword
Innocence died screaming; honey, ask me, I should know
I slithered here from Eden just to sit outside your door

[Verse 2]
Babe
There's something wretched about this
Something so precious about this
Where to begin?

Babe
There's something broken about this
But I might be hoping about this
Oh, what a sin

[Pre-Chorus 2]
To the strand, a picnic planned
For you and me
A rope in hand for your other man
To hang from a tree

[Chorus]
Honey, you're familiar, like my mirror years ago
Idealism sits in prison, chivalry fell on his sword
Innocence died screaming; honey, ask me, I should know
I slithered here from Eden just to sit outside your door

[Instrumental]

[Chorus]
Honey, you're familiar, like my mirror years ago
Idealism sits in prison, chivalry fell on his sword
Innocence died screaming; honey, ask me, I should know
I slithered here from Eden just to hide outside your door

Right now I am going through the hardest time in my life. June 30 my daughter Eden was born and had surgery at 2 days old, now diagnosed with cystic fibrosis. She is 3 weeks now. I can't tell you how many times I have listened to this song. I know it has a meaning that you intended for it but for me it means so much more especially right now.

"Babe, there's something wretched about this
Something so precious about this
Oh what a sin"

Her diagnosis is so horrible , yet she is the sweetest bundle of joy
She is so pure and happy and content while I'm over here falling apart

I just wanted to share to let you know how powerful this song has been for me through this

"Idealism sits in prison, chivalry fell on it's sword. Innocence died screaming, honey ask me I should know". Genius. Poetry

Who are you love what you said

I love this song because it was the year I stopped going to church. That line really marked that for me. It was a time that I broke free from the fear tactics of church life. Idealism sat in prison and “innocence died screaming” and oh was it sweet. I was finally truly free.

I know most people relate this song to romantic love but, after watching this video, my mind goes to familial love towards the child. A couple of criminals on the run (that mostly got to that point because of a difficult past) sees a child in a circumstance that will lead to a future that's just as tragic as theirs. Them deciding to give him any amount of happiness for as long and however they can. Finding joy in spite of their past and present situation with an inevitable future closing in. And, despite all of their lost innocence, they still feel hopeful in seeing the boy so happy and finding peace within themselves in realizing that they're still capable of experiencing selfless love. Ultimately, their chivalry is punished and justice is a bittersweet thing, but their love for their family stays intact despite the end of their journey together. Using those last moments with each other to say that they don't regret a second of it, that they were worthy of love, and that their bitter past doesn't get to make them bitter people. Yeah, I legit cried while watching this at 5am.

My dumb brain was in awe

This is so accurate for me, exactly what I hear when I listen. My daughter was born 3 weeks ago, her name is Eden. She was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis. I've listened to this a million times since she was born because it's been really rough

yep. I’m back here at 3:30 am, now crying on my bed.
