From Eden

Album: Hozier (2014)
Charted: 69
  • 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 Writer/s: ANDREW HOZIER BYRNE
