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 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 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

From Eden"

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

[Live version inclusion:
Where to begin

Babe, there's something broken about this
But I might be hoping 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

From Heaven:
Babe, they say there’s blackness lurking about you,
something so malice about you.
And I do agree.

Babe, there's passion boiling within you,
so you’d better hold me around you.
And I will not flee.

Don’t patronise, no fool’s surprise, no tyranny. 
No goodnight prayers, no devil’s snares, no time for thee.

Darlin’, love’s peculiar, that’s sure something angels know. 
Shred my halo like a ribbon; wrap my wings inside your coat.
Rinse the white light, gleaming; in the closet, shut the door.
I flittered here from Heaven just to sip from your dark soul.

Babe, if you’re so questionable about this,
then why do you dither with darkness?
Go follow Him.

Babe, there’s nothing about you I won’t kiss.
For you, I must stray from the lightness.
Oh, what a sin.

The darkest land, the highest stand, for you and me.
Feathers and thorns, in the sheets downstairs, we forget occasionally.

You’d say, “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.”

Darlin’, love’s peculiar, that’s sure something angels know. 
Shred my halo like a ribbon; wrap my wings inside your coat.
Rinse the white light, gleaming; in the closet, shut the door.
You slithered here from Eden and I fell so far to fall.

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

@coconut in a way it's sort of an inside joke. katie mcgrath (the woman in the video) has played many wlw characters and suspected to be part of the lgbtq community.
