Hozier Lyrics


Boys workin' on empty
Is that the kinda way to face the burning heat?
I just think about my baby
I'm so full of love I could barely eat
There's nothing sweeter than my baby
I'd never want once from the cherry tree
'Cause my baby's sweet as can be
She give me toothaches just from kissin' me

When, my, time comes around
Lay me gently in the cold dark earth
No grave can hold my body down
I'll crawl home to her

That's when my baby found me
I was three days on a drunken sin
I woke with her walls around me
Nothin' in her room but an empty crib
And I was burnin' up a fever
I didn't care much how long I lived
But I swear I thought I dreamed her
She never asked me once about the wrong I did

When, my, time comes around
Lay me gently in the cold dark earth
No grave can hold my body down
I'll crawl home to her

When, my, time comes around
Lay me gently in the cold dark earth
No grave can hold my body down
I'll crawl home to her

My baby never fret none
About what my hands and my body done
If the Lord don't forgive me
I'd still have my baby and my babe would have me
When I was kissing on my baby
And she put her love down soft and sweet
In the low lamp light I was free
Heaven and hell were words to me

When, my, time comes around
Lay me gently in the cold dark earth
No grave can hold my body down
I'll crawl home to her

When, my, time comes around
Lay me gently in the cold dark earth
No grave can hold my body down
I'll crawl home to her

hozier forever gives me unrealistic expectations for relationships, the way he speaks of his lovers seems rare.

@Bruhtonium I think this is it. We're afraid to live passionately. To feel the way about a lover that Hozier describes, you have to be open to the pain that could come from the heartbreak. I think many of us fear really letting go into another person like that.

@Bruhtonium  @Bruhtonium  imo the problem is most people are to worried about what "society" thinks and this prevents them from what they really want/enjoy/cherish. I learned to live when I learned to be okay with myself and what I want or do as long as I stay within my personal values/principals.
I.E. I am not very social and sometimes spend days by myself. A lot of people look down on it and think I must be bored or hate life. I use to worry about it only because of my ego and chirping I heard. Now I know I enjoy it most the time and I am probably happier and more content than a lot of people that are doing things they dont enjoy riding life on auto pilot

Levi str8 shrimpin Every person is just as real as the next. The problem is, many people are hidden inside a shell of a person their whole life.
