Lyrics

Hozier

I have never known peace like the damp grass that yields to me
I have never known hunger like these insects that feast on me
A thousand teeth and yours among them, I know
Our hungers appeased, our heart beats becoming slow

We�ll lay here for years or for hours
Thrown here or found, to freeze or to thaw�
So long, we�d become the flowers
Two corpses we were, two corpses I saw

And they�d find us in a week
When the weather gets hot
After the insects have made their claim
I�ll be home with you, I�ll be home with you

I have never known sleep like this slumber that creeps to me
I have never known color like this morning reveals to me
And you haven�t moved an inch such that I would not know�
If you sleep always like this, flesh calmly going cold

We�ll lay here for years or for hours
Your hand in my hand, so still and discreet
So long, we�d become the flowers
We�d feed well the land and worry the sheep

They�d find us in a week
When the cattle�d show fear
After the insects have made their claim
After the foxes have known our taste
I�ll be home with you, I�ll be home with you

They�d find us in a week
When the weather gets hot
They�d find us in a week
When the cattle�d show fear

And they�d find us in a week
When the buzzards get loud
After the insects have made their claim
After the foxes have known our taste
After the raven has had his say
I�d be home with you, I�d be home with you
I�d be home with you, I�d be home with you
I�d be home with you, I�d be home with you
