The third single from Hozier's self-titled debut studio album, this finds the Irish singer so lovesick he can "barely eat." Not even death can stop his love for his girl. When his time comes around, Hozier will get out of his grave and crawl home to her.
Prior to his breakthrough success with "Take Me to Church," Hozier already had a notable supporter of this romantic song: Taylor Swift endorsed it on Twitter back in August 2014 in a tweet to her friend, Victoria's Secret model Lily Aldridge: "Have you heard @Hozier 'Work Song'? It's the perfect song."
This is the only track on Hozier's self titled album where the song title does not appear in the lyrics.
